What's happening Mar 2020

The Virus. Ah, The Virus. It was supposed to be a big month for my day job that would have me in the remote Northwest of Western Australia commissioning.  I was there for 4 days, and commissioning went well, but during our support coverage we were called back home, and I'm now working from home for the foreseeable future.

It does give me more opportunities for practicing my latest arrangements though!  I've finished arrangements for "You're So Vain" "If You Leave Me Now" and "Band On The Run".  They all still need practice though. I normally don't have 3 arrangements on the go at any one time, it's too much to try to push into my brain all at once...

I've noticed a lot of fingerstyle youtubers putting out "isolation" videos of their latest arrangements. I guess if you can't gig in public, it's a sensible thing to do!

Oh, I re-learnt how to solve a Rubik's 3x3x3 cube. Knew how to do it as a kid, had forgotten. It's like memorising a complicated fingerstyle piece, I'm sure it's good for our brains to mix it up a bit. One of my kids is keen to learn and we are halfway through the training. One is kinda ho-hum about it, trying but not very hard. The other one laughs at the very idea of learning how to solve a cube...

Stay safe everyone!
