Yes, indeed. I went camping with some friends last weekend and brought my accordion. Thanks to this challenge, I had enough material to play!1. It's possible and instructive to build repertoire by adding one tune a week and concentrating my practicing and playing to these tunes.
Here's one I played that you haven't heard yet. A belated Week 15 I suppose.
2. It's not possible (for me) to keep all the songs fresh in my mind at the level of adding one a week.
It's possible for me to do one, but not both. I was able to post one acceptable or almost-acceptable video a week for 11 weeks, but I haven't been keeping songs from previous weeks fresh. And it's not really my goal to post 21 videos, it's to build repertoire, so a broken streak was a good excuse to hop off the treadmill and work on a set for playing around the campfire.4. It's not possible to learn a new tune each week and make a suitable (to me) recording. The acceptable recordings come from a tune baked into mind and muscle memory. The recordings that result from "50 takes to get one" just don't cut it.
Good idea, but not one I'll participate in. I prefer to play by ear on the accordion. I have another instrument I can use if sight reading is called for.So, this offers the next challenge. 21 weeks of learning to sight read at speed. We'll see how that goes after these 21 weeks. Oh, and yeah, gotta play those Christmas songs soon. Could be a good venue for the sight reading.
Whadda ya think?
