Make Share Faire Reflection

What went well? (E) Alec and I had a very good turnout with our game. Most people that played came back and tried to beat their own high score. We had both teachers and students try our game, and nobody could beat Nick Zammit's record of 200 points.

What problems/difficulties did you face? (TS) When people came to my table and asked what I was doing I talked about my journey to how I got to where I am at guitar and I could tell it started to get boring to the people and some even walked away.

How did you try to solve them? (TS) I tried making my presentation shorter so it wouldn't bore them as much. And I just played the song for them but everyone else was so loud you could barely hear it. I tried moving but it just got worse.

If I were in charge... (TS) I guess I would split the groups up into 4 instead of 2, like A,B,C,D so they are more spread out and there is time to see everybody where as on Friday people were hidden in classes too.

FINNISH THE LYRICS!



5/24/17
next friday is the maker fair so I need to Finnish the lyrics very soon! and I need to record them!


Today I got really far on my plan…

Finally figured and set in stone chords and picking patterns. Over the weekend i'm going to have my friend send me a recording of her singing so I can put into garage band and get ready for the maker fair on friday. Once I get the recording of her, I will put my guitar recording in it then I will be done. I also, need to add more lyrics to song! ASAP!
5/17/17
Im going to keep playing with the lyrics and see what fits



5/10/17
I came in late today so I need to really get down to business and write lyrics and chords that really go together before the maker fair.


Today I have finally made a dent in my work toward my final project because…

I have FINALLY made some lyric changes to the song. I made it connect to my great grandma McConnell. It made my mom and her fellow teachers cry so I now know its getting there. I want it to be a song that people can connect to. Also, I stuck with the chord progression from Zac Brown Band and it sounds very good! I just did a different version of the G and D chord to make them sound more unique. Which is good because I want this song to be unique.
5/3/17
I have found a chord progression that I like, so now I will try and find some lyrics to go along with it.


I/We didn't get as far as I/we planned because...
The songs I made up early didn't sound good today so I had to make a new song idea. I couldn't think of one today for my life. The chords I would play would sound like other songs that already exist, or they would just not connect tougher either. Maybe this is what artist feel like when they make up songs. Maybe next time I will change my tuning for a unique sounds.
Going to edit this through out the time Im writing the song.
4/26/17
Today I am going to run through song ideas that I have already thought of and recorded. try and make a couple more demos today. By Thursday I am going to try and email my uncle with all the demos to see which one he likes.


4/19/17
This is our last quarter in BCS forever so I really want to challenge myself and write my own song with my own chords


Today I got really far on my plan…

I recorded two of my ideas for a song that I had the other day. Now I have come up with two more idea just messing around and throwing chords together and fingerpicking some notes. The hardest part I think is going to have to be able to write lyrics. Also, It will be hard for me to choose one to play at the maker fair. Maybe Ill send the demos to my uncle and he can choose which one because he has had a lot of success on iTunes with his piano so he knows what people want to hear.

↓RECORDINGS ARE HERE FOR MY SONG IDEAS↓


3//29/17
Today I am going to watch the video that edutopia did on thinking and then I will try to record my solos for the wiki


One example of a FAILure we had was ...

Was with my time management. I got to school and watched the Edutopia video which didn't take long but then I started, getting offtrack, thinking about other stuff, playing songs when I should be doing solos. Another big key to my failure today was with Garage band, I have to record today and I did not have garage band loaded on my phone so it took 30 minutes for me to clear space on my phone and re-download the app. What I am going to do next time is if I know I have to record ill get the app before the class so it won't waste time. With today I am going to have to record more at home which next time I can avoid now knowing what I can do better


RECORDINGS WILL BE HERE ↓

Today I'm going to run through old songs I know and see if I can identify any scales through the song or on the solos



3/15/17
Today I am going to play my finger exercises and then do some Jam along tracks and soon I will record them and put them on the wiki


I/We didn't get as far as I/we planned because...

I recently discovered a new artist called John Mayer. He has an incredible voice and very unique guitar skills. I wanted to learn his song free falling for my sisters friend and then I realized it was John Mayer so I kept going at that song and I couldn't stop because I like it so much.
3/9/17
Today I'm just gonna focus on playing with scales and seeing what fits with Jam tracks



3/1/17
I missed the bus this morning so I had to bike to school which left me with 25 minutes left in the class. I did a critique and now my plan. I don't have much time today so maybe ill just do finger exercises today and Friday go back to jam tracking.


I/We didn't get as far as I/we planned because...

I found out these cool mods on the amp for the electric guitar so I messed around with that for a while. Secondly I found a new song that I really like because of the guitar, and its called "drop dead legs". I like the chugging and cool scales in it, and I got carried away with that.
2/15/17
Jam along to jam tracks and see if i can play after and more fluently the last week


What caused you from reaching your goal for the week? What challenges occurred?

This week I did not get as far as I planned because I got sick. I stayed at home part of Wednesday and Thursday. I was not able to play at home but when I got back today I focused and did as much as I could before the class time was over. I got more than a little done but I wish I could've gotten more done.
2/8/17
Find some jam tracks then play with them and see what I can make. Also, i'll add some little cool riffs into it too



2/4/16



Today I got really far on my plan…

I finished up my proposal and changed my plan to being able to play along with other instruments. My old guitar teacher Michael Moore told me about jam tracks on youtube, so i looked them up. I plugged into the amp and started playing along. I was a little bit rusty at the start because I haven't played with anyone in a while, but i finally got used to it. I started just flowing through the strings and making up cool scales to go along with the song.
1/18/17
We had an Ice day today where the school was closed due to the roads. I woke up and started playing the song. I am going to keep going on it until I am confident with the song and how I play it.


I/We didn't get as far as I/we planned because...

Today I did not get very far in y plan. I had to check my journal and make sure everything was in order for the check. I was missing a few things so I had to fix that first. Then, I got a little bit of playing time. After that, I helped a classmate figure out how to learn a song and I taught him palm muting the strings. So, I didn't get far in my plan but I did a good days work with helping and catching up
1/11/17
My plan last week was to learn the song "Anastasia" - Slash & Mikes Kennedy and I practiced that on all week and now know it by heart. My next song I want to learn on my new acoustic is Broone's Bane by Rush. It is a very cool sounding song and I want to learn it for my Dad.


Today I got really far on my plan…

I was not in school today because I am sick. I was lying down and listening to Broones Bane and kept running through where the notes might be in my head. Over the weekend I was feeling better so I picked up my guitar and started playing where I thought the notes would be and it sounded just like the album. After, I checked how other people see the song and I used tabs to compare mine with theirs.
1/6/17
I feel like I have gotten far enough on Eruption as I need. I have memorized the first part of the into. It's not the whole song but I want to learn a new song because I have found a new one I like on my new guitar that I got for Christmas.


Today I got really far on my plan…

Wednesday I decided to tell Mr. Whitmer that I will bring in my new guitar that I got for Christmas. Today I brought it in and decided to play anastasia by Slash and miles Kennedy and I got really far in the song because I worked hard on it at home and here at school.
12/7/16
Today and Thursday I am going to continue to learn eruption


What was the cause that stopped you from progressing further in your plan than what you originally wanted to do?

Today I didn't get as far as I wanted. I came in and got ready, messed around on the guitar for a minute or two. After that I got ready to start, when I went to the tabs I had been logged out. So I asked Mr. Whitmer if he could sign in and he said it would be a minute. I waited and did what I learned on that song. After a little my mid started drifting and playing other songs which was a distraction so I couldn't get as far as I want.
11/30/16
Today I am going to look for some new songs that I want to learn


What can you take from today and apply to days in the future?

Today I was learning the song Eruption - Eddie Van Halen and I had a really hard time at the start. I kept missing notes and it seemed like he was going at lightning speed. Midway through this class i listened to it over and over again and noticed something. Instead of picking...Eddie taps with his right hand and pulls with his left had which makes it sound very fast. I also noticed he does it in a lot of his songs. Since I noticed that today I will be able to hit more notes and faster and keep up with the tempo with more of his songs too!
11/2/16
Richard is not here today and I came in late. What I'm going to do today is watch another video on frames and get good ideas. When Richard gets back ill talk to him.


This week I/we took the proper time for the job when...

Richard was back today, so that was good. We didn't know what to do so Mr. Whitmer assigned us to do "Creative Selfies". We went outside and took some. Most of mine turned out really well. There is one where I'm jumping over the phone and another where its my reflection in a puddle. When we came back inside I had a cool idea of doing a handstand over the phone. It worked out VERY well until i fell over. Anyway I got the picture and will post them to the google slides.
10/26/16
We have already done HDR, Angles, Leading lines, and focus. What we need to do now is get more photos on frames. WE don't have good photos on that so we need to get some good ones.


Today I got really far on my plan…

Richard wasn't here today so I was not so distracted. I also watched a video and decided to do a panorama. It was hard at first because I was trying to get a creative angle but then it would glitch out and get half the picture. After multiple attempts I decided just to do a normal standing panorama. I put them both on google slides.
10/19/16
Today we have people in our room with cameras. We also are doing peer critiques. After both of those, Richard and I are going to watch some more video s on how to get creative photos. Soon we will move onto editing the photos we take!



10/12/16
Last time Richard and I got distracted so this time we are going to upload our google slide onto our wiki page. And learn more about making/taking creative photos.


Today I got really far on my plan…

Today Richard and I got very far in our plan. We watched another video by the normal guy for creative photos. We went outside and took some. Personally I believe they are some of the best. They are very clear and very pretty. I think we are getting very far in our overall project too.
9/30/16
Richard and I are going to take more photos with more tips and make ur slide show and embed it on the wiki


This week I/we took the proper time for the job when...

Richard and I took the time to watch some very helpful tips. after we watched the videos we went outside to take pictures. We learned about depth of the photo and not get a flap plane picture. So we will upload those pics to our playlist so everyone can see it.
9/21/16
Richard and I are going to do more research on tips and angles and are going to think of creative ideas and start capturing them.


One example of a FAILure we had was ...

When Richard and I went outside to take pictures we kept forgetting to turn on HDR photos. Another example of "Failure" we had today was when we finally got the photos and tried to post them on the wiki, they went in sideways. We have not figured out how to fix that yet but Richard and I are going to figure it out and then fix the photos to the right position. Also it was hard to get a screenshot for the grid photo. I kept turning off my phone every time I tried to screen shot. I finally got it. Now we just need to fix the photos.
9/14/16
What Richard and I are going to do is to research unique ways to get new, flashy, cool looking photos.



6/7/16
  • Try out Mr. Whitmer's new guitar with finger exercises
  • 5 minutes of learned songs
  • 5 minutes of just jammin'
  • Keep learning my new song


In both of my projects this year I have learned that I need to plan. Because in my Screencast project with Alec, if we did not plan we would spend most of the time trying to figure out a game that we both enjoy. Once we found that we would try to get the tutorials out of the way. By the time we did that we did not have time to post to youtube because we spent too much time on finding the game. In my Learning Guitar project if I did not plan out what I was doing I would wonder. Why I did this was because sense I did not plan I did not know what to do next.

Also, In both of my projects I needed space away from people to think. Why I need this is because I think better when I am away from people. In guitar I was sitting away from people instead of near and I got a lot done. even in mine and Alec's gaming videos I could not focus, because I would always try and tell Alec anything cool that happened over the weekend or anything. Why I did this is because we redid the cottage and my Dad said I could bring Alec. So I kept telling him how fun it will be. If I was alone I could make a list of games and go back to Alec with more Ideas so we did not waste so much time.
5/31/16
  • 5 minutes of learned songs
  • 5 minutes of anything '
  • Keep learning new chunks of my song


What did you learn that you can apply to future projects?

I learned to sit further away from people. I kept getting distracted, because people would talk about their game really loud and they would tell people to come over if they got anything good. I can apply this because last time I was no where near anyone and I was so focused in. This is also true with work, I will get more done if alone than with others.

Today I need too keep learning my new song and master it and then I need to record it.


What did you learn that you can apply to future projects?

Today I was pulled to go to the cafeteria for a recording that people needed. It was poorly put together and it took way to many tries. After I cam back to the room I talked and got distracted, Mr. Whitmer put me in the other room. After he moved me I really focused on it and I felt really good about what I did, and I felt like I was just flowing through strings with the guitar.

I/We didn't get as far as I/we planned because...

Today I did not get as far as I planned because there was another skit that people needed extras for. So I volunteered and stopped doing my guitar, it was a bad idea because I did not even do anything I sat in the back and wasted time.

Today I got really far on my plan…
I got distracted in the beginning but after a group left I moved. After that I kept practicing the song I was doing (Running With The Devil). I practiced it over and over again. Then I started to play along with the song on my phone. I was about to record but then we ran out of time, so I did not get to record. I got really far I thought. Good job today.
4/21/16

Today I/we had "hard fun" when ..

Today we have a sub, so I needed to help out a little but then I'm going to do my warm up and do my guitar solos.


I/We didn't get as far as I/we planned because...

Today I did not get as far because its a half day. Sense it is a half day every class is only 45 mins. About 10 mins was waiting for Mr. Whitmer to Finnish with other groups to put in the passcode for Rocksmith. After that I only got to play 2 songs before I had to do my reflection. Next time I could do finger exercises while waiting.

Today I/we had "hard fun" when ..

Today I had fun after I was done with my plan. I had to keep reordering from easiest to hardest, which was not fun but I keep on thinking I will get to play it when I am done, because it was part of my plan that I had to do for my new project. I was allowed to play, and it was really fun. So I learned get my work done and I get rewarded by being allowed to play the guitar.

Today I got here late so I had to catch up on my plan. I showed Alec a youtube online for the game Forza 6 which is a racing game that we played, and it was showing the fastest cars.


What did you learn that you can apply to future projects?

Alec and I watched videos on starters battlefront because I have a friend coming over this weekend and he is really good so I needed to learn some tips. I think if I watch those tips I can apply them in the game so I can defeat my friend. Also we enjoy watching the videos because it teaches us how we can improve our videos online. But we need to be careful because we can get carried away watching the videos.

Today I/we had "hard fun" when ...

We made a video on madden of my favorite football player Rob Gronkowski, he made some insane catches and huge plays. Cam newton also had some amazing plays so go check it out in a day or two. We did this player because its both of our favorite football player and because he is one of the best players in his position for the NFL. That also showed me that Alec likes Rob Gronkowki so it gets me wondering what other players he likes? Maybe even some more that I do.

Start planning a Top 5 Screencasting tips page that will complement my partner's page -

http://thinkeringstudio.wikis.birmingham.k12.mi.us/Top+5+Screencasting+Tips+-+BJW2



10/27/15
The steps I / We plan to follow are...

1.) Agree on a game that are on top charts
2.) review it ourselves
3.) If we like it we record
4.) say why it would be fun/ Addicting for other players
5.) Describe Pros and cons


Today I/we had "hard fun" when ...

I was playing fifa and alec was playing madden and he got mad at me because I kept on telling him to hit the spin move. Then I was playing Fifa and I kept on missing a goal so then alec kept rubbing that in too.
10/20/15
I / We am/are having difficulty with...

Every time Alec and I are done with a review of a game, we have a hard time finding a new game. But Alec and I today are going to do the review of Star Wars Commander because of the new Star Wars movie that came out today!


I/We got further than I/we had planned because...

We took a little less time trying to find a game then normal. But then we also had to wheel the table and chairs and all the equipment toward the office because the new group needed the hallway. But sense we had to do that we managed our time well because we got our work done and found out a game reviewed it on our own. We were about to record but then we had to do our reflections.
10/13/15
Today Alec and I are going to look for games that we could review then we are going to record.


I/We didn't get as far as we wanted because...

We did not get as far as we wanted because we had to help out another group. We had to teach them how to use QuickTime Player to record there videos, Plus we also had our critiques groups today. So we had to write critiques on their journal so they could know what to do next. Also the other group had a lot of questions to ask us of how to use quick tim player.
10/6/15
Today me and Alec are reviewing our other video on youtube. Then we are going to record some new game videos!


One example of me/us managing our time well was ...

Today I had to work on my own because a lot of people were gone on the Philly trip including my partner Alec. So what I did today was go on the App Store and look at top charts to see some good games that me and Alec could write reviews and gameplay videos! Then I am going to talk to Alec and see if he agrees with any of the games that I think would be fun to review on and record.
9/22/15
Today me and Alec are designing a truck boy to the way we like because we couldn't find a body we wanted.


I/We were efficient/inefficient because ...

Today I was inefficient because Richard and Adam were playing sim city and it was kind of distracting because they kept talking about how cool there villages are. And other people we playing smash road and sharing their high scores which was annoying.
9/15/15
Me and Alec today made a proposal and we think we are going to make a RC Traxxas truck!

Final Year reflection &
Portfolio update


What I have learned about myself this year is, if I try and don't get distracted I can get really far in learning a song. If I am inside the room with all the computers and my friends I talk more then playing the guitar. What I also noticed is that I sometimes drift off from what I am doing and just start playing little licks from songs that I know. I still like guitar but next year I want to switch it up.

Next year me and Alec were talking and we want to bring in MXGP and play it and give it gameplay and reviews. This is a good choice because I have done guitar the whole time I was here in thinking and I want to learn to do something else. Also I have a dirt bike at my cottage so I will ride all summer then get back play this game and see how the professional dirt bike guys ride and the difference between us. Alec also want's to get in to motocross so I can tell him some stuff and this game actually does help. I think it will be really fun to do.
