A slow burner, that one.
I've been very disciplined about practicing guitar every day, intense practice sessions. I keep making these little breakthroughs in technique. Sometimes nothing for a few months and I start to wonder if I'm wasting my time on this pebble. Then these little bumps, these little rewards, nudge me to a more advanced plateau.
An apex where I can go, "Diddly diddly" really fast.
