    Did you change your topic during this process?
    i never changed my topic but half way through i switched my focus to song writing instead of the scales and theory aspects that i focused on in the beginning
    Were you able to find information on your topic that was helpful to your understanding of the subject?
    yes definitely i learned a lot from this class and hopefully will continue to explore and learn more as i continue my journey outside of this class
    Where you able to stretch yourself to learn more on the topic or did you find that you relied only on what you already knew on the topic? Be specific.
    i learned a lot actually. i never played scales to this extent before and i used a lot of what i learned in theory class my sophomore year to. i was never really able to use what i learned in that class on guitar so it was nice to be able to apply some of it to the guitar finally. i feel like the more i practice the more i discover about my instrument and the theory behind it.
    In what way have you grown intellectually as a result of this project?
    my practicing is more solid and i can understand a lot more but things are still confusing but hopefully like i said as i continue my process outside of this class i will learn a lot more and ii have plenty of resources to continue my journey and will always be finding more
    How would you approach the process differently if you had another opportunity to learn in this manner?
    some days i was not always focused so i would try to stay focused i would get a metronome and i would also look more into theory and making it relevant on the guitar
    What was the greatest benefit of your learning experience?
    my greatest benefit from this class was just everything i learned and the experience i have had in this class for the third time. every year was different.

    so i uploaded the recording of that song today under Final presentation and i want to write lyric for it and record those at some point. all my technical work ha been basically writing music or learning repertoire in the past few weeks.
    5-16-11
    im going to write lyrics for the song that i uploaded here and hopefully record them sometime soon when they get written. im also going to work on writing more acoustic and metal songs but when it comes to metal i need to keep things some what simple at first i feel like i think to complex at first but i need to get a basis and then can work on more complex things after.
