So.. In an effort to keep motivating myself forward and to track my progress, I've decided to periodically make videos of myself playing. Still have such a long way to go before I'll even get back to the playing I did years ago but it's fun.. 🙂 I tried to attach my video to this post but it was giving me problems, so here's a link to the same video on my YouTube channel.

Great StaceyC. I hope we can help inspire you and you are right, recording yourself regularly is a GREAT way to improve.

The important thing is to have fun, just like you said.
You get a badge for the video. 🙂

@StaceyC Sounds great! Just like you I'm restarting after a 45 year gap. Fun is the name of the game for me too!

Good going @StaceyC
