I have a lot more time on my hands now that I'm on my own again, and having something to keep focused on will help me keep my mind off of being single again.
What Eyad said has some truth to it.
I'd prefer to see you get there with a bit more turning and a bit less "arm motion" - the ratio is a bit off right now and favors arm motion over turning.
But… if you were a student and you came to me with this swing, I don't think we'd do that before we attacked the downswing.
So… do I think people can "get" things in a day? Sometimes, but they're usually setup (static) pieces. Stick with this for a week (or feel like your backswing is still short but accomplished via more turn and less arms, if you could please), and then tag me next weekend and I'll get you on to the next piece.
P.S. This is a positive. A week to do something is a very short period of time. I'm not slow playing you… I often don't see students for a few months between lessons because change takes time. A week is a VERY short period of time.
