Working on A to E , D to A , D to E chord transitions

   For the last three days I have been consistent at working on A to E , D to A , D to E transitions.  Maybe by posting my daily progress chart it will help me to continue to be consistent.

   I time myself for one minute for each of the three A to E, D to A, D to E Chord pairs and see how many changes for each pair I can do in that minute.  I record my progress for that practice period and share the Chord Study Chart automatically updates for all to see.

  Yep, the link to Chord Study Chart automatically updates each practice period. If I skip practice that day it will be posted for all to see.  No pressure.

A Wayback Burger and a pack of Snarling Dogs

   Jay L. and I had an afternoon out and went to Wayback Burgers then to Guitar Center where we had fun looking around.  Jay found himself looking at all the backpacker size guitars, but was easily dissuaded as he looked at the prices he was unwilling to spend.

   We each did get a tin of Snarling Dog picks.  An odd name for brand, but they are the same price as the bagged ones and come with a cool tin case.

   I picked up the .88mm thick black Snarling Dogs Brain Picks 12 count tin case.  I got the .88mm as I decided I like to play with the thicker picks that I found myself using from my assorted bag pack I had previously picked up.   

  I am using a breath mint tin to store the previous assorted bagged picks.

  I still need to pull out my guitar more often, It is so easy to go a few days without practicing.  A part of it is that I often just do not feel like putting my brain to a workout.
