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.
