Lucas

How many minutes to practice: 15-30

What to practice: This week Lucas I want you to focus on working through the rest of Seven Nation Army with the music. I’m going to upload the rest of the transcription by Friday so keep an eye on this assignments page.  HERE IS A VIDEO OF ME PLAYING THE PART

How to practice effectively: This is the UPDATED TRANSCRIPTION of Seven Nation Army and here is a link to the song. Good work with this so far Lucas, just remember to keep in time with the song, thats what I want you to focus on more than anything this week. Try singing the guitar part and playing at the same time, its tricky but it will really help you internalize the part more than anything! The rest of the song is most of the same parts we’ve already learned just in different orders so be sure to read how the different sections relate to the different parts of the song.

Have fun with your costume this weekend Lucas!!

 

Jonah

How many minutes to practice: 30

What to practice: This week Jonah I want you to work up to the Bridge on So Much to Say. Here is the transcription and the link to the song.

How to practice effectively: Try taking a look at this song this week! Read the music carefully and listen to the song. Its mostly the same beat but with some tricky fills and some changes in the pre-bridge. Give it a try!

HAVE A HAPPY BIRTHDAY JONAH!!!!!!

 

Samson

How many minutes to practice: 15-30

What to practice: This week Samson I want you to work through the Accent Tap exercise with the feet and play through Dark Red at full speed on youtube. Here’s a link to the song.

How to practice effectively: Remember with the accent tap exercise that the accents should be strong but not tense and that the taps should be only like one inch off the drum, but still clear. Also remember to lead with the bead of the stick for this exercise and not your elbows or forearms. For the feet, just take things slow, it looks like you had the hang of it in the lesson, keep pushing the tempo! For Dark Red, the right hand on the ride cymbal is doing exactly what its doing on the Accent-Tap exercise, it transfers perfectly. Then just keep bumping the tempo!

Good talk this week Samson, remember to stay focused on the important stuff in school, let goooo of the drama!
