Hi,

This is 75 BPM:


This is 80 BPM: This is played twice.


I notice that I keep thumb of the fretting hand like you said I shouldn't.
I think it's happening because when I go from lower to higher strings I don't change the thumb position so that's why the thumb gets bent.

In order to play this exercises as clean as possible I have to focus and take more takes.
It happens that in some takes I miss a note and in other takes other notes are not sounding as clean as possible.
Then I focus not to miss that specific note and I end up missing another one, or making some notes not clean.
So my playing is not consistent.

Here is Warming up with Lian:

This is how I feel about this exercise:
- Not very fast
- It works your stamina
- It works your hand stretch in the last part.

Hi Victor, great stuff here!

I think that your left hand looks more relaxed now so the minimal effort exercise is giving good results. This means that you should keep it in your daily practice, and also keep these exercises that you've shared here.

Your technique looks good, you need to continue practicing these exercises and apply the ideas that I've already shared in previous videos.

- Work on smaller blocks.
- Isolate hands.
- Always remember to economize movements and strength.

Here I created smaller exercises from the exercises, and then put all of them together.

About Pinky Finger
It seems impossible for me to keep the pinky finger closer. Maybe if I play very slow and concentrate on the pinky finger, painfully slow, like one note each second.

About Speed
I think I should be able to keep hand synch at 80BPM (sextuplets) that is 120BPM(quarter notes)
About 85BPM, maybe I could play some exercsies with my hands in synch but not all of them

Hi,

Here are again some of the last exercises I created from lesson Hand Synch I, played at 80BPM.

Exercise 1 feels a bit hard to be played in a loop since I have to cross 3 to go back and forth.




Hand Synch II - by Ben Higgins

Played at full speed 100BPM, you can hear the metronome that I added from Reaper to help me keep in time.

The last part where I have to play sextuplets at 100BPM is above my level, I know I can't play it.
At first I thought I woudn't try to play it when making the video, but I decided to try and do it just for fun.
But that is very fast, sextuplets at 100BPM is 150BPM at quarter notes, if my calculation is correct and I think it is.

So this are the first exercises that I will practice:

Hand Synch I contains the exercises that I made before.

Hand Synch II contains only picking in thirds in G Major.
I will add other sequences later, but for know I feel that this is enough to practice.


We have the ascending version, then descending version, then I put them both together but there is a small difference, but it feels the right way to play like this? What do you think? Do you think my tab is correct?

Ok, great

The potential for creating exercises are unlimited from the ideas that you shared with me.

Picking in thirds, how should we call it "132 pattern"? (This can be done ascending or descending)

Then the other pattern 1234, (both ascending and descending)

This ideas can be applied to a scale shape and can be moved around the fretboard, using the same shape, this will change the key we are playing in.

The same can be done for all scale shapes (move it around the freatboard).
I see that there are multiple scale shapes in the same key.

And we can also apply the shapes using one string.

Yes, that is a lot of material this could take up to months and months of creating exercises and practicing.
This can also give a lot of ideas for composing music.

Let me know what terminology should we use for specific patterns.
And help me on how to approach finishing some of my guitar compositions, I may attach a file next time.

Hi Victor, these are sequences. The possibilities are endless as you've said.

I would identify the first one as: 1324

and the second one as: 1234 2345.


Regarding your compositions, sure!! Let's go for it! smile.gif

Hi,

Here are the compositions.

Etude No. 2 is completed is just an example of how I made the lead guitar and the rhythm guitar, I don't know if it fits perfectly, because I just tried to search until it sounds right.

Etude No.3 I need to find an easy way to create the Rhythm Guitar.

This is one of my main issues:
Let's say I came up with a nice melody, what power chords should I play?

I know that I have to find the scale, but usually we have some fragments of scales and I am not sure which chords fits the best.

Hi Victor, how are you?

These two ideas have very cool melodic stuff. The first one shows that you still need to work on your harmonic knowledge. I feel that most of those chords are not the best choices for those lines.

Before we move forward with your songs, it would be important to know if you master the concepts covered in this course: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/lessonser...ing-Essentials/

Hi, I am good and you?

I will try to tell you how much I know and understand from songwritting essentials:

So I know the basic stuff like:
Introductory Lesson
- Intervals, Minor and Major Chords, Scales

- Chord Progressions
Then I learn how to build chord progressions, using C Major Scale for example, and other scales.

And I am here at:
- Add Melodies to Chords
- How To Harmonize A Melody

Those last 2 lessons( Add Melodies to Chords, How To Harmonize A Melody) I feel that still needs practice in order for me to assimilate them.

That's good! Please take your time to go deep with the lessons and create your own stuff based on these concepts.

In order to know which chords you can use over a melody, you need to to have a good theory knowledge, and have experience building chord progressions and other stuff covered there.

You also need to learn and analyze other composer's compositions using the concepts that I've shared there. Write down progressions, identify the tonality, the scale, and how the notes related to the chords at each moment.
