I tried that several summers successively and it doesn't work :(
All that seems to happen is you get good enough to be able to see your faults better and get frustrated that as much as you do improve, there's still sooo much out of your reach.
I don't know how many hours I must have spent plodding out chromatic patterns to a metronome painfully slowly then incrementally building it up, and I still can't for the life of me sync both hands perfectly past a certain speed.
Er yeah, not trying to put you off or anything.

I do write my own songs and think I could be quite good with a bit of help (as a writer anyway)
I know I might get a chance to be in a band within a couple of years but, at 32, my voice isn't as good as it used to be so I'm pretty gutted that things seem to have passed me by...
Really though, unless you're a pretty priviliged person, the chances of you getting to do something like that and making it work are pretty slim aren't they? (unless you're prepared to go on the dole for years while you're building the band up)
Instrument wise though, I'd like to take up the violin again and would like to try flute and harp. At least with a physical instrument, rather than a voice you can take it up at any age and, with a bit of hard work, be successful.
I love that idea about an online band that was posted. I really think that could work you know. Hey, if you want any lyrics.........
I do intend at some point to become reasonably proficient at it ... sounds lame, but finding the time ...
I also for some reason bought a set of harmonicas on a whim, which I'd also like to have a dabble at when I get the chance.
Not sure if I have the ability really anymore, it seems much harder to read music than it used to be.
A load of my classes have just ended actually, so maybe I could have a go at piano lessons.
Go team me!
