Hi all
I have a question and would like to know what everyone, GMC instructors and GMC members, think about this.
Here at GMC the lessons are divided in small blocks. Generally, do you learn one section up to full tempo and then you move ahead or you learn all the sections at slower tempo and then gradually increase the tempo to the whole lesson?
Of course is, as I said, just generally.

Thanks in advance, will be nice to know the approach of more experienced players than me.

Regards,
Carmine

For me it kind of depends on what lesson I'm working on. Generally speaking, I like to learn the whole lesson at a very slow tempo, and then gradually work it up to speed. However, if it has a really hard spot, I may stop there and work on just that spot in order to get it right before I move on.

That's a good question! I would like to know how everybody works on lessons. I use to learn the whole thing but practice the most difficult parts isolated. Then I play the whole lesson using the slower backing tracks.

I learn each part individually, until I can play it all the way through at a slower speed. Then, I work on bringing the whole thing up to speed, and isolate any difficult spots individually.

I think that's the same as everyone else so far. For difficult lessons, I believe that is the way to go. Because if you learn all the small parts at full speed, you won't be able to "link" them together, and you will backslide. Part of the "lesson" is how the parts flow together. By bringing the whole thing up to speed, you learn MORE than the individual parts.....you learn how they "flow" together/how you reach/how you shift positions etc.

so far I have tended to learn each part and bring it up to the correct tempo then move on to the next part. However, after speaking to cosmin and reading other peoples approaches I think I'll get on better learning the whole lesson at a slower tempo and then try to bring the whole piece up to speed.

I don't really think any of those two approaches is wrong though smile.gif It's just my preference to learn the whole piece before playing it perfectly because if I practiced one part over and over I'd soon get really bored laugh.gif It's more fun to play longer, because it's less repetitive and keeps you interested smile.gif

Nothing to add to Dino's last post, that's the way I learn lessons as well.
