Thank you for all the comments Gab, I appreciate it smile.gif

I hope you are doing fine.
It was a great idea to learn a piece by ear as well. As you said, the apps covers intervals at the moment and will go on to Chords and Scales later.
I will look if I find some easy short piece that I can learn.


Regarding Goo Goo Dolls Part 4, in the tabs it says Gm/5-/D but looking at the video it seems to be a normal D.
Which one is correct?

Thanks!

Great, I will post videos next week.
Not much to show at the moment, trying to get familiar with the new parts.

I am working on the ear training as well. I find it difficult to hear difference between Major 3rd and Minor 3rd interval. Do you have any tips?

The best way to to get used to intervals is to relate them to songs that we know.

You can have your own set of songs that help you to identify intervals, but here you can see an example.

Minor third: The first two notes of “Greensleeves”.




Major third: The first two notes of “When the Saints Go Marching In”

Hi Gab!

I hope you are doing well smile.gif
Unfortunately I did have some headache when recording. Now a few hours later I am better and the headache is gone.
Also there was some issue with my speaker so the backing track is pretty low, I hope you are able to hear it properly either way.

Last time, we said I would start working on Part 4 for both the acoustic solo and Goo Goo Dolls, also record a whole take for the previous parts of the solo.
Here is the take, my thoughts on it is that its pretty good. I even played part 5 (part 5 was just the harmonics). At 75 BPM which is the original speed. I can notice some timing issues at a few places (at 8 seconds for example) but apart from that I am pretty happy with the take. If I compare it to Liam, I notice he uses more dynamics and also a thinner pick.


And for the Goo Goo Dolls. I am playing part 4 at 70 BPM (Original is 80 BPM). My thoughts on this take is its okay. Chord changes and the dynamics are pretty good and quite similar to the original lesson. I can hear timing issues at a few places.


What are your thoughts? smile.gif

Thank you for all the kind words smile.gif
I hope you are feeling well.

Yes I could also hear the backing track low. Will make sure I fix it soon since it's harder to play tight.
Great feedback as usual in the video, I will work on those things you mentioned.

We talked a while ago about learning a short melody by ear.
I decided to try it out but have not yet decided which one to learn. Here are the melodies I'm thinking about:
Happy birthday
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Amazing Grace
Silent night
Jingle bells

Great! I think that this list of melodies is good. You can start with Happy Birthday, or Jingle Bells, and then continue with the others.

Feel free to share a vid of you playing the melodies that you learn.

Hi Gab,

Great thank you. I will share a video when I can play it.

A short update on Goo Goo Dolls.
I am struggling with the Bm to D/A transistion and the D/A chord in general.
I am able to play it okay at 50 BPM, (original speed is 80 BPM so a long way to go)

I recorded a video of me playing Bm to D/A, my thumb gets some pain when playing D/A.
As you can hear, not all strings sound clear, I think its the B string that doesn't sound clear.
Do you see if there is anything I can do differently?
