    How does this sound ?

    We take about a dozen tunes. We practice, perform and post them over a 6 month period.

    Hopefully we will inspire and encourage each other.

    Preparation can be a few minutes or a few weeks depending on whether or not you need to change keys etc.

    We can focus on the hows and whys and ask each other questions.

    We can post videos that inspire.

    My question remains do we carry on here or do I? start a thread under the Study Group heading ?

    I was hoping that this thread would lead to a Study Group whereby we would pick one tune per month. I envision overriding "curriculum" if you will of a couple of dozen tunes, so that members could skip tunes that did not appeal to them and participate in months when the songs did appeal to them.

    Similar to what is done by the folks over in the "Practical Standards" Study Group.
    i like the idea of some kind of structure otherwise I creep at my glacial pace. I think a song every two weeks might work given the balance between life and the desire to push oneself.

    I'm going to throw myself out on a limb here and separately post a crazy video that I did about a year ago.

    Yes, I guess I am just looking for more variety and inspiration. Members could choose to focus on whichever songs they want and even post them multiple times as they improve through the "term".

    I am open to change if it is warranted. Let's see how this works.

    Please vote, when you get a chance.

    Great post. Love that bluesy singing style - especially the shift to upper range. (My own head voice has opened, and I'm working with imagery of 'pulling high notes down' for fuller tone.)
