Great lessons everyone, nice to hear improvement!

 

Andrea

Recommended minutes to practice: 10 minutes a day

What to practice: We looked at the C major scale and Mary Had A Little Lamb. I would love to hear that next week, as well as come as you are. I also want to hear you play the D Major chords and D sus.

How to practice it most effectively: As always take things slow, play the scale along to a metronome if you can. Have fun with come as you are and just enjoy learning a tune you know.

 

Clara

Recommended minutes to practice: 15 minutes a day

What to practice: Practice the chords to Havana as well as try and learn the melody by ear. We also looked at the C major scale which I want to hear next time we meet.

How to practice it most effectively: Play along with the song. It’s the same progression all the way through and will help you solidify the rhythmic aspect. 

 

Killian

Recommended minutes to practice: 15 minutes a day

What to practice: We learned Stand By Me. We learned it in a different key than the original so just listen to the song but play along to a metronome and try and make sure you get the progression correct. We also learned the c major scale.

How to practice it most effectively: Listening to the song will help you memorize the progression and playing the c major scale slowly with a metronome will help.

 

Eamon

Recommended minutes to practice: 45 minutes a day

What to practice: Figure out the chords to Stand By Me as well as the melody. I also want to hear that chromatic scale and the other warm up I showed you. Also I would like to hear the chords to fly me to the moon.

How to practice it most effectively: For Stand By Me make sure you listen to the recording a lot and I think you’ll be fine. Also listen to different recordings of Fly Me To The Moon. Use a metronome when practicing the chromatic scale and do it slowly. 

 

Isaac 

Recommended minutes to practice: 20 minutes a day

What to practice: We did the C major scale and F major scale in thirds. We also worked on Banana Pancakes and we will be looking at the Wish You Were Here solo next time. I totally think you can learn some of it by ear. 

How to practice it most effectively: Use a metronome for technical exercises like the scales and the scales in thirds. Play along to Banana Pancakes once you’ve gotten it up to speed. I know those slides were tricky but they’ll get better with practice and are a great expressive effect on the guitar.
