HELLO YQP !
This is weishan posting for the weeeeeeeeek !;D
FIRST THINGS FIRST:
SORRY FOR THE LATE POST !
i was really busy during the weekends :x
really sorryyyyyy !!!!!!!!!!!
okay.we shall start with the practices !TUESDAY, 1JULY : Lunch Practice
we tried a new way of tuning the yangqins !the new way : synchronising of yangqins ;D
we started with the top qinma .everyone was to tune all the strings to be of the same note, then we'll tune according to one yangqin (YQ A , yuka's/wendy's yangqin at that particular time of tuning). it's an excellent way to tune, of course !;D but it'll definitely take a long long long time. but i mean, 欲速则不达 ,and we want all the yangqins to be tuned to perfection , right ?so it is WORTH IT MAN !:D
meanwhile, the rest can't get into M4 because nickng has the key on his table -.- so M4 remains locked !LinLaoShi's Dazu
we排 bali first !
linlaoshi was just fine tuning the whole piece, and for the fast yangqin part at C/D , we finally realised that it wasn't as fast as we thought it was ,and so i guessed it's much better ;D
and we tried out the new arrangement during dazu ;D
the mallet instruments look so MAJESTIC (lol .exaggeration ,but NEVERMIND !) at the side of the room :D and M4 (especially the perc area ) didn't look that cramped anymore. at least in my point of view (;
then after bali, it was .....SATAY !
lol .linlaoshi was trying to be funny ;D and it worked :D
LEGEND OF THE SATAYYYYY .MUAHAHA .
it was overall quite good !at least i thought so !
i'm highly anticipating the crowd's cheers after they heard our shadier :DWEDNESDAY, 2JULY : Lunch Prac
nth big happened, merely tuning of the yangqin while the others practiced stormwarning (:
i still like stormwarning. jiani too !haha !;D she and i thought that the melody's marvelous :DDDTHURSDAY, 3JULY : Lunch Prac
we did qinwang !
man ,my memory's failing me, i can't rmb what we did during thursday lunch prac !DDDD:
i noted down QINWANG though ,but i forgot what we did D:
if anyone remembers ,do tell me !i'll add in to this post !XiaoZu
ha .the huapengus arrived !;D
but they were somewhat HIGH PITCHED, so we went to sun them to loosen the skin of the drum (:
we went to the SECRET BALCONY OF 4TH FLOOOOOR !:D muaaaahahaha .then chewfei told the sec2s to stay there to practice. sylvia and rachel were like, so enthu when chewfei said that. then later, after like ,15min , they wanted to go and drink water and stay out of the sun .lol .but we were like hitting and hitting and smacking and hitting and practising-qinwang-ing and DRUMMING happily (:
then we returned to see qulao tuning the 4 yangqins .she said she wanted to tune them well for our concert, and so she needed our help in cleaning the yangqins .so we took her brushes and took some yellow cloth to clean them. then we oiled them .meanwhile, the seniors were replacing the yunluo stand (:
the new yunluo stand looks MUCH NICER THAN THE OLD ONE .and cooler too .and wider :DFRIDAY, 4JULY : Mrs Ee's Dazu
before i go on, in case anyone's wondering, there isn't lunch prac on friday because it was youth day funfair. okay, i know it's obvious , but i sorta forgot about it and was trying to remember what we did at that time when sylvia reminded me that we were actually running around the school being freaked out by ghosts. (okay fine, i was the one freaking out , but that's not the point :x) maybe i was the only one who forgot about it, but LET'S CARRY ON !
we did diyi first .i guessed it was alrite (:
i came in slow during the first go-through, then subsequently i managed to come in on time .lesson of the day: always look at mrs ee, there's nothing to look at on the suspended cymbal, so LOOK AT MRS EE !
then we lian-ed shanjian .
man, it was kinda horrible.
I WAS HORRIBLE.
but i hope we'll be able to play it well before the concert !
cassandra loves shanjian (:
mrs ee said it is an overall easy piece, 'cause there are many repeats ,so it should be fine .SATURDAY, 5JULY : Percussion Practice
rachel, sylvia, chewfei were not there most of the time. i believe they had some student leader stuff !
so majority of YQP were over at M4 practicing stormwarning, so yuka and i were at the yq room practising . we took some random yangqin book and started playing and singing .ha !
the 不能忘记你 song was hilarious .at that time sylvia and rachel were there too ;D
then later yuka and i went to take a short break, so we went exploring the 4th floor. we found alot of secret places and secret ladders okay !ha !
then later we went back to hear them 过 stormwarning , then later it was qinwang. we fine-tuned it, and then we went through it tgr with chewfei and rachel and sylvia when they were back (:
then mrs ee heard us go through it once too, and she gave comments.
she said that we could go sooo soft at some parts till it's literally not able to be heard by the audience, and then later play uber loud to have a constrast. she said smth like the stage is very big, so the range of the volume must be greater .yes .
so that was how YQP spent the week during cca in overall !
quite a satisfying week, i guessed (:
few more things to say !!
CHEWFEI, RACHEL SAYS YOU'RE THE NICEST PERSON IN THE WORLD, AND YQP THINKS SO TOO !
Every member of YANGCHINGDACHEE will SUPPORT YOU FOREVER MAN !

YQP, keep on fighting for 18july !
WE ARE THE MAN (WOMEN, SORRY )
WAVE YOUR HANDS IN THE AIR AND CHEEEEEEEEEEEEEER !COME ON !
