Busy busy V

I DO apologize for my absence.
Monday, I took a day off of work, a personal day.  See, I was out late on Sunday, and I.....
Anyway.
I went to Kuma's and slept and then went to a four hour meeting.
YES
I got an iPad, and it's - distracting, to say the least. But, alas, book club book is not going to read itself, the guitar is not going to play itself, the blog is not going to write itself.  So I had to detach the iPad from my fat little fingers and put it down.  It's not even sleeping, it's off.
p.s. - the blogger app? SUCKS

I think I have for real this time no joke hit my limit of activity.
An update:
  • Full time job
  • Part time job
  • Board of directors director(ship? ness?)
  • Sit on three committees
  • Breakfast with VonMom every Saturday at 8:30
  • Guitar class every Saturday at 11:00
  • Family stuff
  • Friend stuff
  • and oh, yeah, write VFN
That's it - I'm toast.  Some people are a little concerned that I seem to sleep all day on the weekends. Well, take a look at the above - really? You wonder why I'm sleeping all day?

I don't really think I'm going to change any of the things, but I do think I need to figure out some way to have more resting time.

And if anyone can tell me how to bar a chord without having the rest of my fingers get all screwy and cramped up, that would be awesome.*

*Musicians' note: Acoustic advice only. Rumor has it it's a lot easier to bar on an electric. m'kay?

I used to sleep all weekend, when I got paychecks.

it IS a lot easier to barre on an electric. Lower action, generally, and lower string tension.

It got a helluva lot easier to barre on my acoustic after I had the guitar shop adjust the neck and action a bit, but it is not a great guitar so it still kind of sucks.

I know the feeling!

I'd sleep all day on the weekends if I could.

Mostly? Just keep practicing.

Says the person who still can't get 'em right on an acoustic after two+ years.

I am also terribly inconsistent with practicing, so it's my own fault.

Suggested by my teacher: do them at the end of your practice time. Also, take a song whose open chords you know, and try playing it with barre chords so you get used to moving around the neck.
