Goals for 2010

Postby Cheap Bass Tard » Mon Jan 04, 2010 2:33 pm

Post your goals for 2010 here. At year's end you can review and see what progress you've made.

Mine:

1) Improve sight reading skills (Standing in the Shadows has some tough flatted keys and crazy rhythms and Jamerson SELDOM repeats himseld)
2) Work on soloing skills - I have so little of this and I'd like to be able to take a solo without completely embarassing myself
3) Spend some time learning keyboards
4) Play more like Jamerson (see #1)

My goals for 2010 include learning to use the bow properly and improved intonation on the upright. [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif]

Time for an update:

Improve sight reading - achieved. Not where I'd like to be, but I no longer fear the appendix of SITSOM anymore.

Soloing - not achieved. Priorities changed a bit. I *am* able to improve my bass lines a bit better than before thanks to having to cover some old Cream stuff and needing to channel some Jack Bruce into my playing.

Other stuff - still working on my tone and use of effects. That will be a lifelong process, but I'm happy with the progress I've made here also.
