2017 - year of practice.

Okay, this year's immediate plan is sorted.


Sometimes Often I don't get many gigs and this can make motivation hard.


Well, this year I've got my practice off to a flying start.
Last year you may remember that I played 24 solo concerts for my lovely neighbour who passed away. I really got my solo playing happening with these concerts and I had the idea to build on that.


I've put together a 12 piece repertoire for violin and and a 10 piece repertoire for double bass. There are 7 tunes that cross over, so that's really 12 pieces to work up.
With solo repertoires one can go out and play on one's own. I know, that's pretty obvious. The repertoires will be completely memorised so that no music will be required.

This means that I could do roving jobs.


Or solo spots at concerts.


I have played solo quite a bit in the past, so I know the terrain.


Maybe I'll work up a solo guitar repertoire too?


Actually that's a good idea; but maybe a little further down the track.

I don't think God is on me.

He thought of you from the earliest part of His creation. I'll build a man like Paul that is intelligent and will reject me at first but will become the seed.

I plan to become retired. If at first you don't suck seed, then try, try and try again.

Oops, repeating myself now like The Curmudgeon. SORRY.

Mm. Yes, perhaps you're on to something Robert. Richard can look a bit seedy sometimes.
