Practising scales G, A, Ab, Bb C, D, and relative minors two octaves to the shruti box. Also with grace notes.
Doing G, C and D pentatonic scales for improvisation. We've moved onto country style improvisation - which is closer to home for me than playing in Bb or F blues and jazz styles. Doing a LOT of tunes as well. Metronome on to do a particular lament that I am learning which is technically very challenging. I have listened to recordings but they are definitely pushed and pulled and not played according to the strict score - often the case with folk. I am trying to learn to have more discipline - at least to learn the tune and then you can decide whether to push/pull it.
Fiddle lesson tomorrow. Exams later this week - lots of swotting, ear training and general hard work!
