Learning Project Introduction

I have grown up playing and listening to music as an extra curricular activity. Some areas of focus have been choir, private classical singing training, musical theatre, and piano. I have played a little guitar here and there, but for my learning project, I want to use the web to teach myself a specific song that I have always wanted to learn. The song is called, Like a Star by Corinne Bailey Rae. I have attempted to teach myself this song before, but did not get very far, as my “picking” technique needs much practice. My goal is to, at the very least, complete the first verse and chorus of the song with the help of various youtube tutorials and researching chords and strategies.

Here is an overview of my goal, challenges I see arising, my plan, and how I plan to execute this plan:

  1. Goal statement: My goal is to be able to play the song, “Like a Star” by Corinne Bailey Rae on guitar by June 22, 2017
  2. Challenges: I see challenges as being having a time being a factor. I know I will need to practice at least 5 times a week, and I will consciously need to set this time aside in order to progress. Also, I may encounter some frustration with this project. I will need to channel this frustration as motivation to keep going!
  3. My plan: I plan to use various youtube video tutorials to help me with this. Also, I plan to practice 4 days a week with documentation and/or videos about progressions and challenges I face throughout the process.

Here is the song I plan to teach myself:

Here are some tutorial videos I plan to use:

    1. Thanks, Tanya! I think I might just sing along 🙂 I’m pretty sure Corinne Bailey Rae sings blues for the most part. I’m sure you would like her other stuff if you enjoy this song.
