You are obviously very talented to pick it up so quickly and by the way you slide your fingers to the right pitch. Next step is to memorize your finger placement to land those fingers closer to begin with.

Since you are just starting out, I feel that you are a natural and will figure out how to produce great music from your doohickey 😉 I love it when newbies experiment and are creative.

You got your first badge!!!

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

Nice.  You're sliding to the right pitch every time.  So we've established that your definitely not tone deaf.  You've also got a good sense of rhythm.  Keep it up.

Thank you very much for all the positive responses and the badge. I am concentrating a bit more on hitting the right note with different fingerscrossedfingers and following the fingering techniques a la correct mode as I have observed in the tutorial vids and other learners examples .......
