That's should probably be 'dudes and dudettes,' if you want to be politically correct. smile

Akira, that is so sexist! Can't you clearly see that "dudette" is just a chauvinistic extension of "dude"?? Just like "women" from "men", "human" from "man"....! Wymyn must not be shackled to the machismo language of the unfair sex!

Isn't this some sort of contest between males and females. So, isn't Matt's post encouraging "Dude's" actually okay since he's only referring to males?

A quick question that's roughly on-topic: Is it possible to edit one's practice log? I accidentally submitted the same thing twice so now it shows 60 minutes instead of 30.

Yea, when you first come to the screen where you enter you info, scroll down and you will see your entries.

Select "edit" and submit, and it will bring up the entry. Just change the date and enter you time for today and it will overwrite it.

Hm, I have one more thing to practice on piano today. If I pull up the second of the double entry, replace what is written there with the next thing I practice and enter (change) the time that would probably set it straight. Thanks.

Well, how would you dudes feel about

Chicks and Chicksters?? :rolleyes:

That's how we feel about Dudes and Dudettes. bah

And while we are on the subject, I am not too fond of Chicks at all. That's a throw-back to babes and broads! mad

To get away from all gender-antics, we could use

Ladies and Gentlemen smile
Queens and Kings smile
Brains and Braun :p
Girls and Boys :rolleyes:
Beauty and Beasts laugh

That's all I can think of right now, but I'm sure you can add more. Of course, depending on your gender, the choices may be somewhat biased.

As a matter of curiosity, how many Chicks think performance majors who are required to practice six hours a day should be banned????

This "lady" thinks that all is fair in love and war and practice hours. smile

(BTW, Frycek...as far as I know you are not a performance major, but I've seen you tally up as many as 4-5 hours on some days. thumb )

I say let the chips fall where they may, and in the end, it will always be the "ladies" who win. wink

6 hours????? OMG, it's torture for me to get in 4, and it takes all day.

Many studies have been done over the years that show measureable productivity peaks at 5.5 hours per 8 hour shift, and the average across industires is closer to 4 hours per shift (not a comment on workers btw, just human nature and requirements of the job - waiting time for instance).

It takes me 8-10 hours to get in 4 hours of playing, and my hands are dropping off by the end of the day. It hurts to hold a fork and eat sometimes, and that's bad.

6 hours would take every waking minute. I envy anyone who can play that much. I am gettng better, as 3 hours was my max just a year ago.

Ah, another goal....it was all I could do to try and keep up with you, Frycek.

HopinMad's tally is quite impressive; eek however, just how long can he/she keep it up? confused

gmm1: I agree that (and I think you are close to the senior set) too much of a good thing is not a good thing, physically and mentally. I certainly have the time to practice more, but my brain needs time to absorb what I've learned. And my body (especially my back and arms) protest quite violently if I abuse them. mad

The bottom line: To get the most out of our practice time even if it's only 15 minutes. It sort of reminds me of that old tale of the tortise and the hare. Slow and steady wins the race. smile

Hang in there...everyone!

I do. i'm a piano major, or rather going to major in piano at a music consevatory but my max time ever on the piano is 5 and a half hrs, right now, if I go beyond that, I go insane the next day.

I guess i've gotta get advice from my teacher

I don't think they should be banned.

If that's the case ban retired people or stay home peeps who don't work and have more time to practice.

Practice is practice regardless of what the goal is.

thank you thank you very much laugh

I don't mind being called a chick or chickadee, it's not being used in a derogatory fashion. It's just a fun thing we're doing here so the terms are in fun.

There are some ugly words out there that should never be used but the people on this forum are classy and respectful and would never dream of using them.

Well, my two cents....

I find looking at how much practice people post in the log to be inspiring and revealing.

One of the reasons I don't play as well as Amelia or Frycek or hoppinmad or LisztAddict or (insert name) is the length of time playing and the time put into practice. I am not discounting talent, BTW, just commenting with practice all of us can reach our goals.

I want to see how much everyone practices. It brings it home how difficult this "hobby" really is, and how much work it takes to become/stay proficient, and how good I should feel that I have made it this far. Like I said, it's inspiring.

As far as Chicks and Dudes, I wish to be called "stud-muffin" instead of dude.

thank you thank you very much....

Well said, gmm1!

What's that old saying that we keep repeating here..."It's not the destination but the journey..." Sometimes I wonder if this really applies to us because we do (at least most of us) have a "destination" or goal. But it is in the obtaining of that goal wherein lies the real rewards.

And I will be happy to refer to you as stud-muffin from now on. :p And I'd like to be called "stud-magnet;" however, this is just wishful thinking on my part. :rolleyes:
