Good to have you back here Rossco. Glad to hear you have your focus on guitar back. Its easy to lose direction at times.

The RGT adventure sounds interesting, good luck with the exam. Also glad to hear you are going to perform on an open stage and busking festivals. I wanna do that someday also, but not sure if I have the courage…

Thanks Loefgren. There will come a point - probably - where you’ll want to do it. I’ve busked odd times before at a festival but there are 3-4 in the area over the spring/summer and I want to go in properly prepared with a well drilled set list. Open mic is slightly more nerve wracking so checking a couple out at the moment. I think in order to improve I need to do it. I also want try and make some connections with other performers.

Congrats sir! You are one of the constants on this forum that I've always enjoyed paying attention to. My journey has been on hold for a few months unfortunately. We are building a new house (a completely different journey) so any second of free time is going towards overseeing construction and making decisions. Hopefully this summer I can get back on track. Eventually will have my own office/studio above the garage!! Super stoked.

Congrats again Rossco

@Batwoman - good to see you still learning and posting. Look forward to hearing more from you.

@Deadeye_ag - Thank you sir. Try and stick with it even if it's only a little as it keeps you going. I definitely stopped progressing for a little while but kept on picking up the guitar and playing a few of favourite songs. Good luck with house! We just finished some relatively minor remodelling work but it still seems to take so much time.

Thanks Rossco. I've been out of action for over a month. Torn tendon in my shoulder. Did this practicing like a demon and not listening to my body. Lesson learned.  :(

Whoooop! I passed (although it was pretty nerve wracking). That's one goal achieved for this year.

Thanks DavidP. I have to admit I didn't think I'd pass... my fingers were like octopus tentacles on the day... felt like had no control over them.

Well done, it must be a bit like playing in public. Is it a couple of people sitting opposite you watching you play.

Just one actually and in fairness he was pretty nice BUT it’s quite sterile, your in, make sure the volume levels are good and then you do song one, then song two, then improv and finally pitch tests and chord recognition. All done in 15-20 mins but you get no feedback after each section and every mistake seems amplified. Nerve wracking for my first one but I think I’ll be better next time.

CONGRATULATIONS Rossco. What a fine achievement! I'm glad your self-doubt and octopus fingers didn't block you from being as good as you are.

What's next for you?

@batwoman thank you for your lovely words. So I'd had a chat with guitar teacher before my exam and we agreed we'd not go straight into another (it's been pretty full on practice wise). So from that angle we're going to look at improv and blues side of things learning some of the scales in multiple positions and generally solo'ing across the fret board WHILST weaving in other things I'll need for Grade 5 but not for the moment the songs. Will then look to try and do Grade 5 end of this year or spring next.

I also want to get out playing more. Got some busking festival dates over late spring/summer (done this 1 or 2 times before but want to get 3 or 4 in this year). Also might be an opportunity at the village pop up bar that has started. Only once a month but I'm going to see if they like a few songs (for free or a beer) just to get some performance practice in! also a local village "festival" (may be stretching it) which might be an opportunity. So generally getting out and about is the plan! which will force me to have a bit  more of a well rehearsed set.
