1. What is the definition of interval? Its the "space" between any two given notes.

2. There are 5 qualifying terms that go with the numerical value of the interval. List them:

- Major
- Minor
- Augmented
- Diminished
- Octave

3. When you lower the major interval by a half step, which interval it becomes : Minor

5. When you lower the perfect interval by a half step, which interval it becomes: diminished

6. If the root is note C ,

perfect 4th = F
perfect 5th = G
major 3rd = E
minor 7th = Bb

Good job on the intervals test!

Here is the new assignment:

Weekly assignment 3:

Improvisation - roots and 5ths

Lesson to practice: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/misc-less...bass-concept-1/

Goal : To learn the concept of improvising a walking bass line using roots and 5ths as a note choice in a 2 feel type of line.

Purpose : Develop improvising skills that will help you create more interesting bass lines. Be able to "jam" to any chord progression.

Instructions :

First check out the lesson and learn it by heart. Make sure you understand the concept behind this kind of improvisation. You want to use only roots and 5ths as your note choice. Make sure you follow the chord progression so that you connect what is being played with the chords in backing - that is very important. Walking bass line will be 2 feel - that means 2 half notes per bar. Try to get in that kind of groove and keep time well. Once you learn the lesson, start practicing your OWN improvisation over the same backing track. I want you to spend at least 2 hours during the just practicing your own improvising over the backing. When improvising I want you to play the backing and look at the printed chord staff (progression on paper) and by following chords - choose appropriate roots and 5ths for improvising.

Requirements :

Post updates on your practice daily if possible, describing what have you done. I want you to record in video (or audio only if you can't make it) your OWN roots and 5ths improvisation over the same backing. I will attach the backing track in a day or two, which you will be using to record your own improvisation during the weekend!

Deadline to complete: 27th of September

Good luck and remember to post your questions and progress!

As I promised :

Here is the backing track for this weeks assignment:

Attached File  120.mp3 ( 688.29K ) Number of downloads: 122


Chord progression:

Am - G - C - D - Em - Am - Em - Bm - G - Am

It's two bars for each chord. Follow the backing track and look at this progression in order to improvise the bass line.

Weekly assignment 5:

Arpeggio shapes on bass!

Lessons to practice:

Arpeggios Lesson: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/misc-less...peggios-lesson/

Goal : To learn 4 most common arpeggios shapes on bass which will help you in improvisation over common chord changes.

Purpose : Learn which notes you can use when improvising over common chord types. Practice your playing technique along with the shapes.

Instructions :

I want you to learn all 4 arpeggios shapes included in the lesson : major 7, minor 7, dominant 7 and minor7b5 . For each shape there is a ascending and descending version included. I want you to both learn the shapes/patterns but also to think in intervals and to notice which ones you are using in which shape.

Requirements :

Post updates on your practice daily if possible, describing what have you done. You want to work on memorizing these shapes and interval formulas. When practicing arpeggios, play with a metronome or backing tracks from the lesson. This will be a great technique exercise. Try to incorporate all the rules you learned in "Technique exercises" you did in first assignments (remember to alternate when playing). I will post a little test assignment (mostly written and possibly guitar pro work needed) in few days so I can asses your progress with the material.

Deadline to complete: 11th of October

Good luck and remember to post your questions and progress!
