Hi. The next assigment is on the 25th of October.

I want you to play the same thing as last time but in 16th notes like I did the 2nd time on the video. Good luck smile.gif

Very good. Sometimes you're changing the picking direction. If you go for a slide and miss one stroke you shouldn't change the direction. Every 1st beat should be downstroke. The rest is all good.

Now 16th notes smile.gif

Okay, this is my best take tonight. Still shift my picking when I slide dry.gif messed up the notes a bit at the ending, it's still hard to not mess up the notes in the shapes when going a little faster

Hi.

Sorry for this long delay. I am finally back and ready to continue.

This take is very good. I know there are some parts where you almost got lost but you managed to finish the whole thing and that's more important for me. If I need to grade this from 1 to 10 this one would be 7. I am sure you can make this better so we're moving on and not going back.

The next one is a bit more tricky. You have a week to do it - next Sunday - November the 22nd.

1. Produce backing track with the following progression:
Am | Dm7 | E7 | Am |
Am | Dm7 | E7 | Am, C#7 |
F#m | E | D | A, C#7 |
F#m | E/G# | D | E7 |
A (major) |

One chord between the bar lines ( like |Am| ) presents one bar in 4/4. Two chords like | Am, C#7 | present each chord half a bar.

2. Play 16th notes like in your last video and move through the positions. As many positions as you can.

3. Tempo is your choice (try something similar like the last one).

4. The track doesnt need to be complex. Just one drum loop with root bass notes and chords on the keyboard or guitar.

5. Write down which modes you are playing over each chord. Each chord belongs to a different major scale mode. For example you will start with A aeolian over Am chord, then move to D dorian over D minor 7 and E mixolydian over E7. The rest you work out. While it is obvious that you are in C major scale in the first section I want you to think of the modal root of that chord. If you want to start from the A Aeolian position 1 you will realize that you are actually playing 5th position of the C major scale.

6. Produce a video and post it on this thread


Good luck smile.gif

p.s. you can ask all questions on the normal MTP thread

Sorry Emir, I've been busy this week with rehearsing and doing a gig, and now I am studying for a test tomorrow. I have made the backing track and written down what modes I will play over each chord, I just need to make a video when I pull off playing over it. I'll do it as fast as I can, hopefully in a few days.

Good to have you back and I hope everything is ok with you.

Hi Dexxter

Looks like this round has finished. I have already received a list of new members and we'll need to close this month thread. However if you have started working on the last assignment feel free to post it anywhere on forum. I'd be happy to give you my comment.

Thanks for taking part in the MTP program smile.gif
