Recently, I have (once again) been struggling with joblessness. This is the reason I have not been as present here… but I miss you all.
That said, my studies and playing time has suffered as time is short… Which brings me to the topic (Thank God, right?).
If you find yourself in a rut, try to revisit the 2 Octave Scale Study. Commit yourself to getting through all 7 keys in a dedicated session EACH day.
I did… and in 1 week, my playing has improved on Mandolin. Am I at breakneck speed? NO. Can I get through all 7 keys mistake-free (even at a super-slow, turtle speed)? NOT EVEN CLOSE. Will this take awhile? ABSOLUTELY.
But will the time invested supercharge your speed and agility? I SAY YES!
Thank you @BanjoBen for another gem!
