Recommended minutes to practice: 5 minutes a day

What to practice: Spend some time singing and playing all the tunes you like as well as playing our new song “you are my sunshine”. 

How to practice it most effectively: Play the song slowly and take your time. Also singing with the song will help you remember the notes. If you can work on the G chord, we’ve been trying to get this chord down and I definitely think you can get it.

What to practice: Look over the sheet music for Take Me Home Country Roads and I’ll ask you to play the melody next week. Also keep playing through the major scale and work on you are my sunshine. We’ll do some more work with the C major scale next week and talk about the chords for Take Me Home.

How to practice it most effectively: Best way to practice the melody would be to try and play along with the recording or if it’s too fast even just listen to it and then pause it and try and play the melody slowly.

What to practice: Keep on playing Black Dog and work on those pull offs and hammer ons. I want to hear it perfectly. Also keep playing the intro to wish you were here and we’ll continue learning the solo next week.

How to practice it most effectively: The most effective practice is to play along with the record and try and play everything exactly how David Gilmour is playing it. Also just isolating those hammer ons and pull offs will help improve them.

What to practice: You got Black Dog down so now try and perfect it, I’ll be asking you to play specific questions to make sure they’re perfect. Also keep playing Seven nation army with power chords, I want you to be able to play power chords really well. Lastly work on that strumming pattern.

How to practice it most effectively: With the strumming pattern, counting out loud will help a lot. Also listen to Black Dog a lot and this will help you get the rhythm of the song together.
