I have been spending way too much time on my guitar practice in lieu of two competitions I intend to participate in - one with my band, and the other with another guitarist playing a harmonized guitar piece. While I have memorised the guitar parts for the songs we are playing as a band (It's Time by Imagine Dragons (re-arranged by our drummer to make it more rock-like) and When We Die by Bowling For Soup), I am still trying to memorise and speed up the other song, Scarified by Racer X, and it is difficult as hell. Well, it's Paul Gilbert, so not really a surprise...
Anyway, my latest updates!
1) I (obviously) have returned from Korea! The weather was superb! And I saw snow for the first time in my life. I shall elaborate more once the competitions are over in March.
2) I have braces now! And it freaking costs a bomb :( Had to extract four teeth for that, probably going to have it removed two years from now.
3) I finally have FaceBook xD Created because most information from my CCA is given out on FB. Add me if you want to, just search for my name.
4) My school is starting in two days' time. Damn.
5) I received my Higher Chinese O Level results.... And I failed. The passing requirement itself is a fail grade (D7) and I got lower than that.... I got an E8. Damn.
I have received a request to post my guitar playing. But right now... I just feel too lousy to post a video of myself playing the guitar. Maybe some time in the future. Or if my band makes it to the finals, there should be a video :) Then I'll link the video here.
So I guess that's all I shall cover now. Back to my guitar practice. After all, when school starts, I won't be able to spend around 8 hours practicing anymore :(

My blog is four years old! I never stuck to a blog this long before :)
