M2M Day 146: Challenge complete!

This post is part of Month to Master, a 12-month accelerated learning project. For March, my goal is to play a 5-minute blues guitar solo.

Yesterday, I played a five-minute improvised blues solo, which, at the time, I felt met this month’s learning goal. Still, because of music’s inherent subjectivity, I wanted to sleep on it and make an official decision today.

After reviewing the footage today (and getting a lot of texts from friends who all said “That definitely counts”), I’m officially going to declare March’s challenge complete: I played a good* 5-minute improvised blues guitar solo.

*good as defined by the video, I guess

As I said yesterday, because I filmed the solo on my iPhone, the audio mixing isn’t ideal.

In the next few days, I may try to record a couple other solos with better audio. I’ll probably stick to sitting on the couch though — it seems like my playing is much better sitting down.
