first assignment:

Time to complete: 7 days (next Wednesday)
Level: Intermediate

Scale: Em


Tehnique: Palm muting, fast picking, alternate picking.

Remember: you must provide audio or video of how progress is going. smile.gif if you want it, and have the time to add drums and more instruments, do it. but for this first assignment I am not asking for it. so, since we have a dead-line to respect, you can rec your takes using only the metronome.

part 1
-control of rhythm guitar at different tempos.
learn this first assignment start at 130 bpm
increase to 130 bpm
increase to 150 bpm
increase to 170 bpm

part 2
-routine
once you feel comfortable with it apply the following:

start at 130 bpm (2 times)
at 150 (3 times)
at 170 (4 times)
rest or jam during 10 minutes and repeat the assignment 2 times more. remember to focus on your practice, concentrate and have fun during the process that´s better than 100 hour-practice



this extra work is out of the weekly dead-line:

part 3
-adding "the band" (composition)
we can work together on this point.

add a drum line to the GP file
add a bass line to the GP file

Hey Lian!

Here is my recording for the first week of October. I couldn't figure out how to recorder the metronome with reaper, so I recorded using my amp. I have also attached the gp file with added bass and drums.

For the bass i mostly followed the guitar line and for the last part I tried using half notes and sixteenth notes to change it up and couldn't tell which was better and ended up using half notes.

The drum line is pretty weak. I had an easier time with the first half of the lesson although it is just repetition with nothing to make it stand out. For the last part I had no real idea what to put and used straight eighth notes for now. This was my first time ever to try and add drums and I need a lot of work. If there are any online articles or book recommendations to learn more about drums that would be great.

Excellent take my friend! this was exactly what I was looking for: great palm muting, great tone, sounds really powerful.
now we´ll go a step further. I created for you a rhythm line a little bit more tricky, and added a fast lead line at the end of it to see what happen smile.gif
I also will add 3 metronomes at different tempos you can import into reaper.

about drums I´m creating a thread with some tips will help you a lot in time of composition, so when it be done, I´ll add here a link for you.

first assignment:
Oct. week 2

PS: whatta awesome t-shirt!!! it´s priceless!!!

Hey Lian!

Thank you for the new lesson. I will work hard on this lesson and plan on submitting a video around Sunday if that is ok. Sixteenth notes at 170bpm might be a little outside my current range, however I will do my best and record my progress at 130bm, 150bpm, and 170bpm. Also, after analyzing the notes used in lesson I was wondering which key it is in. It appeared at first to be e minor, but I found d# notes in the solo and a f note earlier on(according to standard tuning). So, is this e minor with using two out of key notes or is the key something different?

yes, it´s in Eminor key, but I´ll add some notes from the E harmonic minor scale, to get that neo-classical sounding in some parts. to make the tune a little bit more funny happy.gif
about if this is out or not of your range: forget it! XD you already got a great and secure right hand at 170 bpm, so I think this goal for your left hand is the way to go.
remember to relax your hands after a while playing, stretch well and have fun!

Hey Lian!

Here is my progress after almost a week of practice on lesson two. I have gotten a lot better at playing the lesson from the first day till now. With some more practice I feel that I can get it much tighter, so I will continue to play it until lesson three is posted and then in my spare time afterwords until I'm satisfied.
