Jazz lessons 2

so pretty much its last week's lessons repeated. I totally didnt have much time to practice. I memorized the chords but couldnt play em well enough in sequence. I need to work on keeping my eye on the music and switching smoothly, without interruptions. So my teacher just gave me the rest of Satin Doll (the song from which he taught me the chords) to work on. I kinda feel bad or like i "failed," but thats what music is all about. Try-fail-try-fail-try-succeed. If you dont get something at first then youve got room for improvement.

This weekend im spending a shit ton of time practicing. Not just guitar but viola too
