Cripple Creek

I found it Interesting because it jumps all over and it is repetitive so you don't have to learn that much. The tempo for Cripple Creek is very fast though, so I am going to need to practice more so I can get faster. It is weird that it doesn't have any flats. It wasn't very hard, but it wasn't easy

Reflection

I have learned that I don't like doing this project. I didn't enjoy anything. This project was so boring. We shouldn't do this project EVER again. I liked last years song more than this years song. Cripple Creek is hard because it is really fast.
