Day 79. Ievan Polkka

Today I practiced after midnight so I just did 1234s and scales as they are quieter than strumming. Also I learned new melody by ear – Ievan Polkka. I’m not sure if it’s 100% correct so I’ll check myself with some tabs, but still learning and playing it was fun.

Ear training

Finally I returned to getting to the level with 7 intervals again. Hopefully this tendency will remain for the rest of the week.

Songs

There is Ievan Polkka at 160 bpm. Still trying to perfect it.

Summary

Todays practice felt very undone after the time I put to the practice yesterday. Hopefully tomorrow I’ll be able to spent more time playing.
