Hi guys! I have a new assignment! This one is a very good exercise! I have two tracks with my guitar and click only!
The second track has two bars with the click and two without! The trick is to keep the tempo even when click is gone!
This exercise will require a lot of concentration and some work! But it will improve your timing very fast!!!
Tempo is 80BPM
The chord is still E7#9



Track with my guitar:

Please let me know if you have any questions or need help!

Hey Alex,
this is a great exercise. It requires a lot of concentration, indeed. But it seems to me I learn a lot from it.
Here is a first take, after some time spent on this. Tell me what you think. smile.gif
Cheers.

It is a very tricky exercise! You are rushing a little bit try to focus on the click more and really saddle with the beat!
Right now you are ahead of the beat try to hold yourself back you can even overdue it a little bit and pull too much, but I want you to hear and feel the difference between rushing and pulling back!
Let me know if you need any help!

Great! You should play up and down strokes!
When you will post your takes I will be able to help you out and will let you know if you are too ahead or behind!
Looking forward to hear your take!!!

I have a new challenge for you guys! It will be a series of 3 exercises posted once a week every other exercise will be a little more complicated! To practice this exercises you can use any song you want or any chord progression!
Ex. 1
1) find the tempo of a song you want to practice.
2)slow down the tempo to half of what it is normally (half time). For example, if your tempo is at 120 BPM (beats per minute), slow it down to 60 BPM. But while doing this, keep your “internal clock” beating at 120 BPM, but then make the clicks of the metronome at 60 BPM be beats 1 & 3 of the measure.
What you are essentially doing is removing beats 2 & 4 from the count of 120 BPM. So it’ll be up to you and your internal clock to keep in time with the beats you don’t hear.
This is a very simple and helpful exercise! It is also beginners friendly!!!
Let me know if you need help or have any questions!

Hi guys I have a new exercise!
Exercise #2 

This is practically the same principle behind exercise #1, but instead of removing beats 2 & 4, remove beats 1 & 3 instead. So really you’ll only be hearing beats 2 & 4. I think you’ll find this one much more challenging.
Always use a metronome when you are practicing those exercises!!!
Please let me know if you have any questions!

Exercise #3

Here is the last basic exercise! Next week I will start giving more complex tasks, so make sure to do those simple exercises first to get into routine!
We’re going to take it a step further here. Let’s set the count of our metronome to 120 BPM and then cut that in half to 60 BPM (like the above examples). But then, let’s take it even further, and cut 60 BPM in half to 30 BPM (you’re metronome might not go that low!). This will only provide us with the first beat of the measure. It’s then up to you and your internal clock to stay on time with the other “beats” you don’t hear!
