Hi Mirko!

How was your new year's?

Let's get started with January's program!

These are the three assignments for this month:

* First week: Due January 10th

- Post rhythm exercise no.1. We are still gonna drill the 2/4 time signature, this time is going to be a little more demanding. Make sure to include the accents as we saw on previous 2/4 exercises.

- Post riff assignment. This is the main riff for the song "Mr. Brownstone" by Guns and Roses. It's a great exercise and it's got some interesting mixture of techniques in it. Mr. Brownstone the riff appears at 3:17 as in the GP file.

- Post speed exercise no.1. Start from a comfortable speed. All alternate picking starting on a down stroke. This is a must-know type of pattern to develop speed. Go up to the fastest and cleanest speed possible and post it.

* Second week: Due January 17th

- Post rhythm exercise no.2. For this exercise start at 60bpm. And work your way up. The goal is 160, but post your fastest possible take at the time. Make sure to include the accents as we saw on previous 2/4 exercises.

- Post solo assignment no.1. We'll keep on working on the bendings. This time let's do the first solo for "November Rain" by Slash. Play the "guitar solo" part on the GP file attached. November Rain backing track The solo part appears at 3:48.

- Post speed exercise no.2. This exercise has some different patterns in it and it's not square. Do it with alternate picking but don't be restricted to it if you need to use a couple of hammer-ons or pull-offs.

* Third week: Due January 24th

- Post Rhythm exercise no.3. Make sure to include the accents as we saw on previous 2/4 exercises.

- Post solo assignment no.2. This is a really fun excerpt from "Mr. Browstone" solo. Challenging but I think it will really help on your bending technique.

- Post speed exercise no.3. The idea here is to break the regular up and down patterns and start combining different runs "arbitrarily". A chromatic exercise. Start on a comfortable tempo and work your way up to the fastest and cleanest possible.

Let me know iif you have any comments and questions!
