Hey everyone! Great work today all around, seeing some awesome improvements. Here’s what I would like you to work on this week.

Ella- Bring the Girlfriend in a Coma beat up to speed, don’t worry about the offbeat accents. Do what we did with the metronome, start at a comfortable tempo (start around 80 this week) then cut it in half (40) then again (20) to practice staying in time with less help from the metronome. Also, learn where Fill #1 comes in and practice playing that and going back to the beat. Last is to learn the Fill #2 section of the tune as well. Next week we will focus on getting the offbeat accents on the hi-hat.

Emily- Practice beats 4-6 at a comfortable tempo, see if we can get these up to 100 too. Next try to get both In Bloom beats in tempo. Do what we did with the metronome, start at a comfortable tempo then cut it in half then again to practice staying in time with less help from the metronome. Start about 20 clicks under song tempo and see if you can work it up to speed.

Eric- Work on getting Immigrant Song up to tempo. Song tempo is 110 so try to get to 96 by next week. Do what we did with the metronome, start at a comfortable tempo (80 for this week) then cut it in half (40) then again (20) to practice staying in time with less help from the metronome. Your smart phone metronome should be able to go down to 20 if your digital one doesn’t.

That’s it for now, have fun with all of this!! See you next week.
