Deliberate practise with feedback

You have to have feedback as quickly as possible. 10,000 hours with a teacher, with constant feedback, is critical.

What better feedback than skateboarding? You skate, you make a mistake, you fall, you bleed. Repeat.

If you don’t get better, you break bones and have to stop. If you learn from your mistakes with the help of teachers, you stop bleeding.

RPM Challenge 2016

This is The Challenge – Record an album in 28 days, just because you can. That’s 10 songs or 35 minutes of original material recorded during the month of February. Go ahead…put it to tape.

I was up for it. So I created a profile on the RPM Challenge page, recorded, processed the audio and then posted it to bandcamp. Awesome.
