Day 88. Decent progress

Today I sped up to 160 bpm on Kids solo, got to the final speed of 1234s, played scales a bit better and once again played All of Me and Autumn Leaves.

8th notes @ 150-160 bpm. Huge leap of speed. Unfortunately I don’t think that these kind of jumps in speed would happen again, because it’s already pretty fast. But this one is really great in comparison to yesterdays 140 bpm. I didn’t manage to play it at 160 bpm clean, and that’s unfortunate, but there was a few pretty close attempts, so I’ll definitely get there tomorrow.

Summary

I’m happy about the progress. Unfortunately my tooth started to hurt, so hopefully I’ll fix this issue tomorrow.
