You are doing an awesome job here Pedja - this is excellent stuff!


Thanks Andrew!
We should probably pin this thread instead of previous one since this one will have all the exercises in it.

This is very nicely done !
Great job , now all you need is to put exercises inside and you are all set.

P.S. Maybe a sub column with style would be helpful like Legato then 3 exercises below it , Alternate etc

I would say this kind of exercise schedule is good mate, and you did a good job, but I prefer (and warmly suggest) to take a notebook and right down all the stuff you want to learn. The notebook can be better, because you can practice anywhere with it, you don't need your PC turned on. Also it is a bit more flexible than tables in Excel. You can draw whatever shapes you want, and all kinds of graphics in it fast, with no need of external apps, you just need one pen smile.gif

I think you misunderstood the concept of tables Ivan. The students should PRINT THEM OUT and have them in front of them, and while practicing should write in the tempos in the designated boxes every day/practice session.

Notebook is OK but this is just more organized and looks nicer wink.gif

That is great news !
Don't worry about hours you put in. If its 1 hour make most of it, and remember - these areas are very common for most guitar players but a lot of other things are missing such as Bending, Slides, Harmonic, Finger style, Hybrid Picking, Songwriting , Recording, Ear Training etc
So that gives you plenty of options to change up the plan and always keep it fresh and interesting. Again, you can do only 1 exercise for specific area , but I recommend at least two so you get a feel for the technique before moving onto another one.

Hope this helps

Thanks for checking it out , glad you think its awesome

Hope you are feeling better! wink.gif

Pedja

Hi all,

Pedja a little more question. I´ve been playing your exercises everyday this week (and the weekend). I stick to the ones you posted, 12 exercises and I extend it to 1:30 hours, and the other 30 minutes I play some song I like.

Should I change your exercises at any time? Should I stick to them during next weeks? are you going to post alternative exercises?.

Thanks in advance,
HexDump.

Hi HexDump,

I am glad you were sticking to exercises! Tell me more about tempos, did you move it up every day every other day etc.
If you feel exercises are getting too old for you, by all means add new ones and start applying them in the same manner.
When adding exercises make sure they include these elements :

1) Only one string
2) Two or more strings
3) All strings

This way you will master the whole technique using various string combination and this will be very useful because that happens in real music too!

If you don't have alternative exercises stick to these for now.

I will do my best to post more exercises , please understand that besides forums and video lessons at GMC I have private students solo gigs rehearsals with my band and other things in life going on biggrin.gif

I look forward hearing from you more in detail about exercises!

Pedja

P.S. Change the key of exercises or string even and increase tempo if you are going for technique !

Pedja thanks for this - I've been doing a very similar approach for 6 months with a simple graph sheet listing small goals and bpm's and a kitchen timer. I'm surprised how effective it is in overall development and fast too!
I'm going to try your outline for a while - its so comprehensive.
The links to the sheets are broken or out of date and I dont have gp5 to get the first examples either sad.gif
I'm off to check out the original topic you linked to in your first post now then smile.gif
Cheers.

You welcome PlayAllDay - I like your Nickname biggrin.gif
You can find the sheets at this address http://www.pedjazz.com/practice/
I will try to export them to different guitar pro extension. I don't know if that is possible though.
Let me know how you are doing with this stuff. I have some cool things coming soon so wait for couple of days more please smile.gif

The thing about being really stupid, is that there are a zillion ways to be a moron. There are usually several ways to be intelligent, given a situation, but it is a small finite number. But there are always a zillion ways to be to blithering idiot. So finding a new way to have the intellect of an artichoke is nothing to be proud of really, it is easy to do.


So true... To bad im still an artichoke haha

Hi again,

Pedja it wasn´t my intention to push you man smile.gif. I really understand everyone has his own life/duties. Just wanted to share my feeling about exercises, etc... Thanks a lot for all the new tips. For the tempos, etc... I will wait for another week, I´m still trying to see how far I can go... This days I´m moving fast upwards (I´m refering to bpm), next week I will be able to give you some information about my top bpm for every exercise Çsmile.gif.

Thanks again for all your time and effort,
HexDUmp.
