Ok Roman, here we go with new MTP rules. You will be required to submit 3 assignments in October, all on weekly basis.

1st assignment is due on 17th of October.

I want you to upload audio and/or video of you playing following :

- Major scales through cycle 5 starting from C major
- Major scales through cycle 4 starting from C major
- You need to play them one octave ascending and descending (up and down) and then return to new key.
- Always start from the Root of the scale and end on the same note!
- Tempo for this assignment is 8th notes at 120bpm

Let me know if you got any questions!

Pedja

Hey Pedja

my first impression of this assignment is that i am maybe not able to do it in time sad.gif I write a hard Math test next fryday and i need to learn the whole weekend. I will do my very best to record video or audio on sunday if this is ok for you. What i discovered so far is that i need to learn all the boxex for the scals that i can record this assignment. This will also need a little bit of time.

Roman no worries. I have given you assignment in the last place with a day or two delay. So you definitely deserve extension until end of this week.
I will post tonight Guitar pro file of what I am looking for you to play!

Roman here is how I expect you to do Cycle 4 at 120bpm.
Feel free to play the scale in any octave! The ones in guitar pro are my random choice at that moment.

Can you now figure out Cycle 5 on your own?

Here is Cycle 5 major scales one octave ascending and descending. Again, your choice where you will play that octave and how you will play it.

Hey Pedja,

here is the first video i prepared, where i play the cycle 4. I made some small mistakes but i have a little amount of time for this so i think its ok. Sorry that the video is little out of sync and not in the best qualitiy. I did this in less than a half hour. I am really glad that you gave me the gp4 file so i was able to save some time for learning for my math exam.

Tonight i will try to record and play the cycle 5



cheers Roman

Hey Roman,

Thank you for doing the work. This video however won't play. It says it is private for some reason. You have to send me invitation to view it I think...

I have given you extension 2 extra days.
You don't have to play scales like I tabbed them in Guitar pro. Feel free to use any octave, range or position on your guitar. Important thing is to play them all in time with metronome click.

Hey Pedja,

now it should work!

Yeah i know that your gp files are only an example ho i can play it but with my thight time schedule (i have every day 6 till 7 hours of lessons at university and after that i have to learn for my math exam) i am very happy that you give me these files. so i am able to record the two videos and don't need to fugure out other possibilities to play: when i have more time i will come back to this assgn,ent and try to find other ways of playing the octaves by myself.

Hope this is ok for you

Roman that is fine by me as long as you work on this material at some point more smile.gif

Your Eb major scale descending has A instead of Ab note. Everything is pretty much good Roman.

I am glad you found GP4 files useful. I remembered you requesting that output format as you don't have new GP. Luckily for us, new Guitar pro has a function of exporting in the old format.

I look forward to second video.
I will post your new assignment when you are done with this one.

Roman, very well done!
Only F# major has a wrong note descending. Everything else was well covered.

You did pass the assignment, I am very happy that you recorded videos and went through the scales.
I would like you to take this same concept and play those scales in many other ways, not just the ones you have seen on my guitar pro file.

Your 2nd assignment will be related to first assignment but this time we will work on natural minor scales! wink.gif

Hey Pedja biggrin.gif,

very quick answer biggrin.gif Well funny that i played one wrong note descending on cycle 4 and on cycle 5 biggrin.gif
I will go through this excercise more often when i have more time and also try to use other shapes. I am looking forward to the new assignment but i want to tell you that i have to do it the same way i did this assignment. I have not much time the next weeks till the 13 November. Many exams at university are on the way.

But i will try to pass all weekly assignments maybe with a little delay.


cheers Roman

Roman we are moving onto your 2nd assignment now. We are focusing on Cycle 4 and 5 for natural minor scales now!

2nd assignment is due on 26th of October.

- Record straight 8th notes at 120bpm, playing natural minor scales ascending and descending using Cycle 4 and Cycle 5.
- Use Guitar pro and PDF files provided as guide or final material.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Pedja

Good work Roman. You played all the right notes but half way trough timing was off. You were ahead of the beat. Next time play it 100% with click, straight 8th notes. Look forward to 2nd video!
