OK Kaz.......give me a realistic amount of time that you can spend weekly on learning the fingerboard and I will post a few things to start working on. I know you don't want to spend all your playing time doing boring excercises etc. So you tel me what is realistic for you and I'll come up with something to help you learn the fingerboard so that when you go to compose and improvise you can navigate the fingerboard much easier........if you could devote an hour daily that would be great but you let me know what is realistic for you.
Okay well let's see
First of all some semi-bad news, I'm on a sailing trip untill sunday! From then on I only have one week of holiday left and then school, so life gets structured again, it'll be easy to build some guitar in that time
I normally play around 1,5 hours average, that's calculated after keeping track of my playing for a few weeks
That means I play an hour some days and some days 3
When I play guitar, I have no problem dedicating at least an hour to mtp stuff. this could for instance be a lesson I'm working on. For example, I've been recording pratice takes of Muris Knopfler style lesson the last hour
I do have problems learning the fingerboard for an hour
I'm not sure what time I can/should spend on that. I agree with the fact that it'll be very good for my improvisation (actually every skill) to know all the notes
I'm actually not sure, maybe we should just try out? We can start with 15 minutes a day and then just see if that's doable? If so, I'll try 20 and so on?
I'm not sure if it helps but at school I'm prety fast with learning stuff, I'm doing the highest grade of education for my age, it might help a bit?
I probably won't speak you untill monday, so cya then! Again many thanks for the effort you put in this
