Great! I am glad you like my latest lesson!
So let's see
say you have 6 hours to practice
1) 15 minutes warm up (You should do it every time!)
2) 45 minutes technique. You have to choose your priority technique say alternative picking and practice only that
3) 1 hour 30 minutes I would spend one hour practicing new lesson
4) 1 hour learning something new you want to do that every day
5) 30 minutes transcribing you can choose any song or any melody to transcribe
6) 1 hour Theory you can read books or do some easy tasks but try to learn theory little by little!
7) 1 hour technique you already know try to repeat and play through techniques you already know so you keep muscle memory

This is just basic idea! Let me know what you think!

That sounds great, now I just need to fill that with some specific tasks.

1. Warm up I have covered so thats done !
2. Is this the place where I should do the synchronization licks??
3. Ok so here is where I practice the Nuno Bettencourt lesson ??? Or is this where I repeat old lessons I learned aswell ?
4. Here I learn a new lesson or technique ?? so I pick something from GMC to do ?
5. Wow this I have never done, so I could definitely use some tips here but I see its essential for being able to compose.
6. With this one I would really appreciate a little direction, like a rough plan to work on so I dont miss anything.
7. Can you give me an example on the difference between this and 4. ???

Where would I practice the scales/chords???

This seems perfect!! Im really excited. Thank you

Cheers Lixxx

2. You can practice any mechanic stuff you want I would organize it this way so it's not too boring
Day 1 All Scales and modes Legato (In every key)
Day 2 Hands Synchronization lesson
Day 3 All Arpeggios in every key (5-6 strings)
Day 4 All Pentatonics scales in every key (2 and 3 note per string) Alternative picking
3. You can spend 30 minutes repeating what you have learned and for another hour learn a new lesson
4. Anything you want even if it's a short lick you still learned it and it counts! You can pick something from GMC and start learning it little by little
5. For transcribing you can join my Transcribing corner and I will guide you through!
http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=43042
6. Ok so about the Theory I will start giving you some material to analyze and study!
7. The difference is that you repeat techniques you are already know
Legato, Arpeggio, Alternative picking etc. say in one key just play through once all the positions and boxes
I hope that helps let me know what do you think!
