One of Syn's really useful tips in Lesson 37 was to commit as much of the Circle of Fifths to memory as possible - something I had put off doing for a while before joining the school. So I decided to memorize it properly and see if I could write a short instrumental cycling through all 12 keys in Lydian - which gives it this weird wonky feel - I put a creative twist in this one and got my foot involved too. Definitely had too much fun making this :D enjoy!

I decided to just sit with my guitar and force my fingers to continually play without thinking of where to go next - some interesting note choices to say the least, but putting that bit of pressure on really puts you to the test and helps your hands think on the fly
