I've discovered a down side to advancing in my playing

Its finally dawned on me that the more tunes I learn to play, the more time I have to spend on practicing those tunes so that I don't forget how to play them properly.

I'm finding that it takes about half an hour every day just to keep the tunes that I know stuck in my head before any time is spent learning a new tune.

I suppose that the up side is that while practicing the tunes that I know, my intonation, bowing, and all the other stuff that goes with the violin 'should' be improving.

BTW.... This is not a complaint, just an observation. I'm still having a great time. bunny_pole_dancer

Seen it all. Done it all. Can't remember most of dunno ..... What was I saying???? facepalm

Yeah, because if you don't keep a song/piece practised and in your memory so you can do it right off the top of your head, it quits being "repertoire".  

When you want to break new material, you can always split your daily list so you do every song you know once every other day, if you time gets too crowded to allow for new stuff.

But it's all good.  You could do at least a half hour "show", now!  Whether you do it to entertain others or yourself.  Might want to give some thought now to what order you feel they sound best in, and call it a "set list".

Doing good, Ferret!

I have been considering that aspect myself.  And it tickles me to no end!  So now, I set aside one day every week or so to just play it all.  

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

@DanielB 

Actually I have the time to do it all. I don't do much work anymore. I've just about retired.

I see that you have changed your 'signature'. Did you finally 'pass the dress code' ?rofl

Nah, I'd still flunk the dress code. LOL

Just got sick of seeing it in my sig and decided it was time to move on to a more positive thought.

This is off topic, but the stripper bunny makes me laugh.

Never mind maneuvers, just go straight at them.

Hi Lyle @LyleA 

Yes, it is a good one. But it's not a stripper. It's a pole dancer. Pole dancers don't nesessacery take there cloths off

And 'I' always thought tha 'pole dancing' was the national folk dance of Poland.rofl

True, but if you're going to bring logic into an argument about dancing rabbit, then I have to mention the rabbit is in his/her birthday suit.

Pole dancing is becoming popular. Question is, how much does it cost to install a good solid pole dancing pole in ones bedroom/house? ;-)

At least it is a genderless, or at least seems that way, rabbit. :-)
