Most people's musical interest is focused on styles, rock, country, classical, jazz, etc. But it's interesting that some students (and thus musicians) interest cuts across styles and focuses on ability or difficulty. Some people like only music (and all music) that is relaxed and non-challenging. And some musicians prefer music that is hard and skillful, almost regardless of the style. And often it's these students, attracted to skillful music, that have a hard time finding songs they like, because their teacher's thinking, even their own thinking, is focused on finding a style they love, when there really is no style they love, it's skill. Tomorrow we'll talk about aspects of what makes songs complicated or not.
Practicing=repetition, repeating, building muscle memory-that means getting comfortable with what you're playing. Not just straight through.
