Yes I'm back to normality (?)

It's 50/50, it'll be close if I did pass, I found myself shaking a bit too much and I was still reading most of the pieces - it was too early to take it, but I'd have to wait another 6 months, which is frankly too long. We'll see.

I have to pat myself on the back though - my playing has grown unbelievably in the last year and I've learned 12 new pieces, my sight reading has really improved. I'd planned to take a few days away from the guitar to recouperate after the 8-10 hour days, but what do I find myself wanting to do this morning :lol:

Excellent :ninja:.

I get the result in 2 months. Cock. :vomit:

Ah! Being sucked into the black hole alters time exponentially meaning the result arrives pretty quick if it is falling into the black hole or never if its you having your gizzards stretched.

Well results in...

FAILED! Magnanimously.

:(

So here's to new horizons?

Nah! I'll just keep on banging my head at it until I've got no head left. Some people just shouldn't be allowed near musical instruments and I'm certainly one of them... :whistling:

Speaking of head-banging, maybe you didn't flip your hair around enough (metal headbanger style) for them. But seriously, if at first you don't succeed... And with these testers do we have a case of those who can, do, those who can't, teach, those who can't teach, teach gym (Woody Allen's quip), and those who can't teach gym administer exams?

Well, that sucks. Probably not all bad though, you seemed to be pretty happy with where the last round of practice has taken you. Do you have in changes in mind for this round?

When's the redo? Don't forget to wear your eyeliner this time.

:D

Certainly love that to be the case! But it was my first 'adult' exam and she was very fair, could've even been a bit tougher :whistling:

I did google the examiner, and believe me, woody allen's quip most certainly doesn't apply!

I'll do the same recital - 7 pieces, though I'll make sure I'll be playing them confidently from memory - I'll be fishing for skype gineapigs later on for performance practise!

I have a few changes to make to my essay, and I'l be sharper when it comes to fielding questions after too...

as for the sightreading!!! :(
