Hi mate! Thanks for your feedback. Here we go with an update to the routine. I basically made changes in the AP section since I think that you still can use the other techniques exercises for training. There is also an addition for Legato. Check it out an tell me what you think!


HOUR 1:

Warming Up - 10 minutes

Start stretching your arms, hands and finger.

Use this time more freely. Here are some ideas:

Hi Gab!
One little update.
Things working fine and I practice the AP patterns almost every day. There are many patterns in the crossing strings. Still need to work on speed but it getting better I can feel. I also take the crossing string excercise and going through the 5 boxes in the pentascale. On B and E string only. Need to get comfortable to the penta shapes and this is good training:)
Piotrs "Move your little finger" is moving slowly forward and I am soon on 90 bpm.
So AP excercise takes the most of my time but I do not forget to spend time on the legato and sweep also.

I can play all the shapes on the legato but to get it fully clean and fast is HARD! But time will tell:)
Time is my only issue but I do the best I can at the moment.

I feel I still need time on this, especially AP. Shall I continue with the rest?

Hopefully I can get a upload rec of ur neoclassic sweep and legato lesson before christmas wink.gif Hopefully....

I wish I had more time but lets do the best of this!

// Thomas

For now I do warmup about 5 minutes going through the 7th chord progression u gave me and some chromatic patterns.
Then I mainly go for AP like 40 minutes with crossing strings and the different patterns in there. And Piotrs "move ur little finger".
Then I go for the legato lesson for about 15 minutes or so.

This pattern I dont understand. How do u play it without a picstroke when u go back to e-string from b-string. Only left hand? I cant smile.gif https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...st&id=26149

Then sweeping about 15 minutes.. Thats basically how it looks like right now. But maybe u have a better schedule? Please let me know smile.gif
Otherwise it works fine with the routine u gave me. I just ajust it to the amount of time I have.

Not only with left hand, I pick the E string every time I get back to it. Check the picking info in this tab:

That looks interesting!
But we are still focusing on the lessons u give personally?
Still the same thing but I just follow the differnt time to each technique?

I would need a theory thing then wink.gif

One thing I have always wanted but never had the patience to do is to learn where EVERY note is on the fretboard.. Do u have any smart schedule on that?

I will try ur idea however. It might suite me well smile.gif

Hi Gab!

To be honest, I have been extremely lazy in the beginning of this year in practising sad.gif

The positiv thing is that I have been written and trying to create something of my own. I have a lot of ideas and are trying to put the puzzle together:)

The things I have been playing is https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Sweep-...-7th-Arpeggios/
and https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/move_y...le_finger!/

I'm planning to learn these 2 completely cause I love the sound and the technique in these both lessons!

I would need maybe another legato lesson and some more AP lessons:)
Got anything in mind??
