Since i realised a while ago that i completely neglected learning songs (i was too focused on technique), i made up a list.

Sitting on the dock of the bay
Working class hero
Redemption song

Layla as a future option....
I'll get it in the end. Just don't give up, that's the key....

Transcribing the whole Far More album from Lari Basilio.

If you do not know her, here's the making of album:

A few months ago, Captain also posted an interview with her on Andertons YouTube channel if anyone is interested. She is an amazing musician and seems a very nice person as well. Was quite disappointed that I was on holidays and missed her gig.

Acoustic Guitar (steel-string)
  • Still playing around with DADGAD and EBEABE (with a cut capo). I'm making an arrangement of a Celtic tune. (Guitar, violin, viola, and probably whistle or recorder, plus bodhran.)
  • Still working on arpeggios, but now I'm improvising with them (still over the Autumn Leaves progression) and mixing in pentatonics.
  • Been brushing up on triads on string 4-3-2, going around the circle of fifths.
  • Various strumming + vocals songs

Classical Guitar
  • Working through Etudes from a method book
  • Re-learning Le Cygne (I neglected it for months. It's coming back, though.)
  • Robin Reddocke (lute song arranged for guitar)
  • Working through a method book (alto recorder)
  • Sakura (alto recorder)
  • Kalevala Melody (alto recorder)
  • A Jig (soprano recorder)
  • Minuet in D Minor (Handel) (soprano recorder)
  • Rigaudon in Am (Telemann) (soprano recorder)

I recently bought a Yamaha digital piano to go in my office. I've been playing piano a lot more now that one is handy. (We have a piano in the living room, but there's always activity out there, and all my music stuff is in my office, anyway.)
  • Chord inversions (circle of fifths)
  • Chord inversions (I-V-I and I-IV-I progressions)
  • Scales
  • Re-learning old repertoire pieces. Currently working on Stardust Falls and Prelude Opus 28 No. 20 (Chopin)
Ear Training

Using Toned Ear and working on identifying harmonic intervals without using a fixed root. I've discovered that's a weak spot, for me.
