How many minutes to practice: 15-30

What to practice: This week Lucas I want you to work on the first part of Seven Nation Army!

How to practice effectively: This is the transcription of Seven Nation Army and here is a link to the song. I’ll be posting it a little bit later so keep an eye out for it.

Sorry about the technical troubles today Lucas, we’ll get a better run at it next week. In the mean time, keep working on the song, listening to it, and playing along!

What to practice: Play Paranoid Android at tempo with the song and work through as much of the bridge as you can. Here is the transcription and a link to the music 

How to practice effectively: Good work today! Remember to keep hitting the practice beats as a warmup every day and then pretty soon you’ll be able to play the beat at tempo. For the new stuff, keep listening to the song to get an idea of what its supposed to sound like and then work out the music slowly.

This beat is really coming along, keep practicing as much as you can!

What to practice: This week Jonah I want to play through all of Rock With You! I’ll be uploading the transcription in the next day so keep an eye on this page for the link.

How to practice effectively: Really good work with Rock With You today Jonah! It took us a minute to focus but once you did it was great! Keep listening to the song and try to work out some of the details in the transcription.

What to practice: Get Rock With You up to tempo through the prechorus.

How to practice effectively: Things sounded pretty solid today Samson, now just keep the 16th notes on the hi-hat relaxed so that you can start getting closer to the tempo of the song. Work on the beat in the pre-chorus and the transition into it so next week we can try and play up to there with the song!

What to practice: Next week Sylvie I want to hear you play So Much to Say all the way through the second Pre-Chorus up to the bridge with the music.

How to practice effectively: You’re doing great with this beat Sylvie, all you need to do now is put everything together. The best way to practice this is to start where we ended today, the second verse, work that out, and then slowly chain it back together with the stuff we’ve already done in the first pre-chorus. Then once you feel good with that, look at the second pre-chorus and add that on. If you have time you can also check out the bridge section which I’m hoping to update to the transcription later this week.

Keep up the good work Sylvie, remember to go slow and pay attention to the big picture, don’t get too stuck in the details when working on something new! Perfecting something comes later.

What to practice: This week Aiden I want you to practice this paradiddle exercise and the transcription for Verbatim by Mother Mother. Here is a link to the song.

How to practice effectively: For the paradiddle exercise go very slowly and take as much time as you need. For Verbatim, take a little time to follow along with the music while listening to the song and then try working it out as best as you can.

It was great to get to know you better today Aiden, see you next week!
