What??? unsure.gif blink.gif

Oh, I put the speed up to quickly check I'd played them all cos I had a bit of metronome click left at the end, and I must of forgot to put it down again before I rendered. biggrin.gif I'll re-upload those I think. tongue.gif

Ok, second attempt. Hopefully I'll have better luck this time. tongue.gif



Yes, the first upload you did was very funny. I don't know how you used that speed up feature but I really hope you are not cheating with those audio tools!

On the bright side, these last examples sound very good. I am very happy with triplets and your alternate technique is really kicking in great man. We will soon move onto new things, I would like another final tempos before we do that. Try to increase all tempos by 10-20 bpm.

Thanks Matt!

It's the slider in the red circle that changes the speed, but if you put it up then the pitch goes up so it's impossible to cheat with. smile.gif

I'll try and get a video made tonight, but I don't know if I'll be able to. I'll definitely be able to get one made by tomorrow night though. What are we working on after alternate picking?

Ok Matt, sounds good. Try to record video tonight or tomorrow and then we will move onto new material.

Tell me how are you doing with arpeggios?
Can you play Maj7 Min7 Dom7 in 3 octaves any inversion? Can you solo with them?

Since you mentioned your intention is to learn to play Jazz and Fusion, we will need to work on arpeggios, tensions, approach patterns, time feel soloing, motive development, sequence and things like that. I think we should start with arpeggios as they are very strong foundation for everything else that will follow. I hope you got your answer smile.gif

I'm not too good with knowing arpeggios or chord shapes. I know triads in quite a few places and inversions, and I know what Maj7, Min7 and Dom7 are, and I could work the shapes out in a few seconds but I don't know many of the shapes by memory, so no I can't really solo with them.

Perfect!
This is very logical next step. You can't play jazz music without knowing arpeggios, it is impossible. Every single Jazz player uses arpeggios either as chord tones or tensions, so we will definitely spend time on this. First, lets wrap up the alternate picking work out we did so far with your final video.

You mean 1-5 as well?

Also what speeds would you like them at for the final video?

Yes Matt 1-5 and also all the others we covered. It would be ideal if you could use same 3 tempos for all examples! If you are not able to do that right now, then do 2 tempos same and let the last one (extreme) vary from example to example.

Will be 60-100 be alright for all of them, or should I push 100 up for the ones I can play faster?

60,80 100 is okay but remember you got 16th note triplets at 100bpm, can you do that ? smile.gif Just kidding, go ahead and do them all at 60 80 and 100. If it all turns out perfect, in your free time and practice routine, you will try to bring this up to 100,120 140 ideally.

Ok, I think I might manage them all at 70, 90 and 110 but if that fails I'll do it at 60-100.

Great Matt. I am very excited to see you play all 11 examples from start to finish. It will require a lot of concentration if you do them all in one go, otherwise you can edit video and do step record if you wish smile.gif

Here's my video of all the exercises. I decided to do them at 70, 90 and 110bpm. There are a few mistakes since I tried to do them all in the same video so if you would like me to have another go then just say and I'll make another video tomorrow. smile.gif

Mostly very good work Matt. I would just add that your guitar intonation needs adjustment on top E string for sure. I suggest you get that checked out as it doesn't produce clear notes all over the neck.
Overall this is very good work. It shows that you have worked with all exercises and improved. Of course, you can take this to whole other level but for time being this is going well Matt. We will move to chord tones very soon. In the meanwhile you can do another video if you want with all examples, but aim for perfection in that one!

Ok smile.gif

Are we not going to move onto chord tones until I have made a better video, or could I practice the exercises outside the MTP, and post another video in a few weeks time?

Also Pedja, before we move away from alternate picking, do you know any exercise that would increase the speed of my picking hand, because I feel that's one of my main weaknesses with AP, or will the ones we've been doing do that? smile.gif

Matt, since you covered all 11 exercises and did alternate picking etude, I would say for time being this is enough. Keep in mind that I want you to keep working through the tempos. We will come back eventually to this where I will request you to upload video with tempos faster by 20 bpm from your last upload. As you know it will be much harder to get to 140,150,160bpm from 120,130,140bpm. The faster the tempo the harder it is for the hands to do smile.gif
Feel free to work on other things besides MTP. I will give you some other alternate picking assignments (lessons from other GMC instructors) but this will be as side assignment. We will shift our focus on chord tones and arpeggios now.

Any questions?

Ok Matt, now its time to move to new area. You already have 11 alternate picking exercises that you will continually work on in your daily practice schedule. Now we will work on chord tones and arpeggios as this is essential in order to play any form of Jazz music.

Your assignment will be to record a solo using standard II V I chord progression in D major. I would like at least 4 choruses from you where you will solo using strictly chord tones.

Chord progression is E min7 A7 Dmaj7 Dmaj7. This is total of 4 bars so 4 choruses of solo would be 16 bars total. I think you can do that. Remember I just want you to use chord tones (1 3 5 7 or any one from the mentioned) in your solo.

Here is a backing track for you. Make sure you check out Frederik's MTP thread as I assigned him this a week ago and he is working on it as well.

Tempo for backing track is 155bpm and it is looped. Taken from my Jazz licks II-V-I in D major lesson HERE

Let me know if you have any questions Matt smile.gif
