Done with The Stranger. I liked this one, but found the repeats a bit annoying. I felt it sounds good with pedal, so spent a couple extra days to add that. It was worth it. My husband now says it's the best one from this book.

Started working on Go Down, Moses and Scarborough Fair. I’m thinking of concentrating more on Alfred’s, till I at least reach the review section. I’m getting a bit tired of this book, tbh, and want to finish this asap now grin

I liked The Stranger also - that cracks me up you feel the repeats are annoying smile Hey, I think Alfred's is trying to teach us PATIENCE also! I am in the Review section but only 1 song at a time while I have 3 outside songs going....so I'll be here awhile which is OK with me.

Are you planning to do Book 2?

Yes, I’m planning to do Book 2. Perhaps not very meticulously, but yeah, more or less. Would be completely lost without a method book! I like to know exactly what I’ll be learning in the short term. Doesn’t matter much, if I particularly like a song or not. I’ve realised that I like all the sounds that I make on the piano. I only cringe when I listen to my recordings eek grin

How about you? Does your teacher plan to work with the second book? I'm not sure, if mine does. Haven't asked him yet.

I need some motivation. I should be working on the review section of book 1, and I do want to continue to book 2. I guess I just need to make up my mind to get back at it.

GidgetKeys, maybe you can start with book 2 without thinking about the review section. Starting a new book may bring the motivation back. I'm actually thinking of doing this to get some motivation, hence the suggestion. The first couple pieces in book 2 look simpler to me than the review section of book 1. And if we feel like, we can always work on the review section later, along with book 2.

I talked to my teacher and she recommended book 2, and after that there are different paths depending on what I want to be.

I expect we all have peaks and valleys on motivation level. I have just come out of a low motivation time - I think it was because I ventured most of my effort away from the method book, and the outside songs are much harder so it's a trade-off between short term satisfaction (method book) and long term satisfaction (outside songs). I will say that my Teacher invited me to her Spring Recital she has every year for her students (watching, not playing for me!), and it was very inspiring - so that helps the motivation.
