A new skill

Encouraged by my Personal Trainer, who says we should learn a new skill every year, I have decided to learn a new skill.  Most probably not what she had in mind, but I decided to learn how to play Guitar Hero.  It’s fun, it promotes concentration and hand-eye coordination.  Best of all my teacher is VWB [1], and we get to share some fun time together.  (I know, Awwww)

So far I’m still on the Easy level, and playing Bass. I think my percentage is averaging in the late 80s early 90s, so not doing too badly so far. I find it easiest when I can play by ear, but that seems to be a bad thing to do because sometimes I can’t always hear the notes that I’m supposed to strum. Best to play by eye, but sometimes I can’t always see very well either. I think that’s a combination of me needing new contact lenses and because I concentrate so hard I don’t blink much and my eyes dry out!

Still, it’s a lot of fun. As someone who is not that much into computer games, I find it relaxing and rewarding. It’s great to get encouragement from VWB and lovely spending the time with him.

  1. Ah ha! Oh you’re in the evil video game with me now! You’ll spend hours staring at the screen wonder where the day went. You’ll think, ‘I’ll just play for 30 minutes…’ and the next thing you know dawn is breaking outside. Whole weekends will be spent inside with nothing tangible to show for it!

    Flee, flee while you still can!
