The most important part will go up f-locked later (sorry, lurkers).
1.) I am too stooopid to take a train to a neighbouring village and back. Seriously, I got ridiculously lost both on the way there, and on the way back today. A trip that should have taken three hours tops ended up taking six, and I spent most of them standing around on the platforms of godforsaken tiny village train stations in the middle of nowhere. I've navigated the public transport systems of London, Paris and Barcelona without trouble... but apparently little German villages defeat me. (What did I want in that neighbouring village? Yeah... well, more on that under the f-lock.)
Met some lovely people at the last of those train stations, though - in particular, a Thai woman with a very thick accent I could hardly understand, who simply stayed for half an hour so I didn't have to wait alone in the snowy dark. Sometimes people are just so lovely I could cry.
2.) (Apart from taking the train) another thing I apparently can't do is sing and play the guitar at the same time. Granted, choosing this
as the first song ever to try playing and singing simultaneously was probably a tall order... (but it consists of chords I know, and the vocal melody is just beautiful, and never goes too high or too low for me...)
But, seriously... is there a trick of some sort, to make it easier to learn how to sing and play in different rhythms? Exercises one could do, perhaps? - Should probably check if there are tutorials for that kind of thing...
