Maybe now is the time to just let them win.

We could beat them if we felt like it, but we don't want to make them feel bad.

Agreed.

They'll only start crying if they loose.

Hey, Debussy20:

Don't you know you're not allowed to post a topic with capital letters?

I got called out on it, so why not you?

Is it because you are a dude?

Yikes, now I've gone and done it. I'm going to have the forum policeman come after me, big time!

Sorry, dudes!

I keep forgetting to enter my minutes. I've just updated for the last 5 days.

I am not posting this month \:\(

Last month, my minutes really fell away towards the end, and it was becoming a chore - "i HAVE to go and practise to get the minutes" etc.

So this month I'm taking a break, playing when and as I feel like it. And although I'm practising, I don't want the pressures of logging minutes / competing (in a good way!).

...and next month I will be back fully refreshed and raring to go!

Go team dudes!

Yes, don't burn yourself out. Practice/play only when you enjoy doing it. Enjoy your break! \:\)

I won't be posting any more practice time.

Piano is the first thing in my life where I really don't have a competitive need and I like it that way.

And last month in the practice log sure was a competition ;\)

There's nothing wrong with this, but it just doesn't fit with my piano playing.

(Actually I am sooo sad we still lost last month ... congratulations, Chicks ... respect \:\) )

I started logging my minutes again this month, but then keep forgetting. I really do not like keeping track of the time I'm at the piano...so I guess my logging is over...sorry dudes.

I'm afraid, I'll be letting the side down too, Dudes. Sorry.

Since I've put Improvising Blues Piano on hold to learn my parts for a band, my practise is less structured and is harder to log. I spend a lot of time listening to songs and transcribing, interspersed with 15 or 20 minute sessions to master what I've transcribed and so on. A lot of these are percussion parts that I might play on the instruments OR on the keyboard, so I noodle a lot. Plus, I'm playing harmonica on a rack as well, so I have no idea how to log it.

In any case, Chicks rule! (That's why I conned one into marrying me ;\) ).
