Here we are. 2003. Yepee. I pulled out the "Goals for 2002" and I guess it was all right. Here's an assessment of my achievements. And a few more goals for 2003. Sadly, #1 on my list didn't get done much at all. I really should practice my upright if I'm going to keep it around. My piano playing did improve in 2002. I even composed a couple things on piano. Could have practiced more fretless. I'll probably start alternating between fretted and fretless on rehearsals and gigs. Some repertoire learned. I didn't learn as many as I thought I would, but focused instead on reading, which will eventually be helpful when learning new tunes. Right/Left hand technique. Practice makes perfect. In progress. My new goals are: (1) To become fluent reading and playing in any key, (2) To memorize Bach's cello suite in G major and start work on D minor, (3) Work through as much of Standing in the shadows of Motown as possible, (4) Improve my walking bass lines, (5) List and review the jazz tunes I have played and solitify them, plus add new standards. (6) Practice the upright! (7) Learn latin grooves. Ok, that's enough on my plate. How did you do and what in for you this year?
