Session 2 of my journey of learning how to improve on piano (I don't expect these to sound good — they're like the "before" part of a "before + after"). During my 1st session last week I kept in mind nothing except to generally stay in the same key. Since then I've reviewed chords a bit + watched some relevant videos, but it's all been pretty passive + I haven't practiced the concepts yet. Today I added some left-hand chords + continued exploring melodies in various keys, but being so out of practice made it hard for my hands to coordinate. I think I'll see rapid improvement once I review my chords more actively + practice playing different progressions 🎹
I made a new user on my Mac for internship work only so I can focus better & eliminate distractions. Previously I was just using a different browser, but under this new user, I have light mode instead of dark, the opposite scroll direction lol, a different browser, and only work-essential things set up (e.g. no iCloud). thanks @tmb for the suggestion
