Recommended minutes to practice: 5 minutes a day

What to practice: You did a great job tuning your guitar this week! Keep trying to get a note out of the guitar and work on Smoke On The Water. Ask your parents for help trying to get a note out. 

How to practice it most effectively: I would just try to keep working at getting a note out, experiment with the amount of pressure you out on the string.



Recommended minutes to practice: 10 minutes a day

What to practice: Great job with the chords! Keep working on those and next week we will get more specific about when to change. Don’t forget to make the G chord shape!

How to practice it most effectively: Slowly switch between the chord shapes, practice makes perfect! The G chord is hard but you’ll get it.

What to practice: You have the sheet now so try to name all the notes. Good job with that strumming rhythm! Keep working on that while using the chords from the song. 

How to practice it most effectively: Singing along to the melody can help, this really connects you to the music. Also try to not look at the sheet music after you remember how to play it.



Recommended minutes to practice: 20 minutes a day

What to practice: Practice the strumming pattern for Wish You Were Here, you have everything together now so you should be able to play along with the track, I’ll ask to hear the rhythm next week. Secondly, work on the pentatonic scale. 

How to practice it most effectively: Move the pentatonic to different frets to get facility all over the instrument.

What to practice: Work on Smells Like Teen Spirit with the new power chord we worked on that has the extra note. Try to name the notes on your low E String.

How to practice it most effectively: Just try to play the chords slowly and get the chords into your muscle memory.

What to practice: Keep working on Fly Me To The Moon, and Dream a Little Dream. Also work on the wish you were here solo, listen to the track and see if you can figure on the chords for the verses. Lastly, work on those triads, use a metronome if you can.

How to practice it most effectively: As I’ve said before listening to the tracks is the best and playing along is key.
