Hi Vince! Great job with both things!

The ear training is perfect, and now the rhythm goes as it should be on the SRV lesson! Well done! smile.gif

I created a 120bpm backing for this lesson to let you practice at the normal tempo. We 'll add it to the lesson too.

Check it out: Attached File  Backing_Beginner_Soloing_loop_C_Major_120bpm.mp3 ( 1.15MB ) Number of downloads: 27

Hi Vince! Good job with the lesson! You can play the whole thing! Now it's time to focus on:

- Groove: Try to follow the rhythm with your body while you play, you need to feel it, and connect your timing more with the backing track, mostly with the drums.

- Dynamics: All notes sound with the same intensity on your take. You need to start accentuating some notes (as it happens in the original lesson) to give more life to your playing.

- Vibrato: More and wider! smile.gif

keep on rocking!

Hi Vince, good job with the intervals, everything is perfect! You're ready for the following assignment.

That Texas Blues lesson is really cool. I've checked the backing and it includes Stephane's reverb effect so it shouldn't be a problem, it's more like a guide. By the way I'll ask if this can be fixed. wink.gif

Hi Vince! Welcome back!

You are doing a good job with the Texas lesson but there are two elements to focus now: groove and dynamics. These two specific elements are fundamental in this style of music. Your playing is not tight enough, and even when it's tight it's lacking that groovy feel that the rhythm requires. You already know the notes, now it's time to feel it. Close your eyes, follow the groove with your head and/foot and let your hand dance with the backing.... dynamics will appear too if you let your hand move and strum freely.

About the ear training assignment, are you sure that this is the number 3? Most of them are wrong...

Thank you Gab! At least the ear training is going nice...Here are the answers for assignment nr 6 smile.gif
1.Perfect 5th
2.Perfect 4th
3.Major 3rd
4.Major 7th
5.Perfect 8th
6.Perfect 4th
7.Perfect 4th
8.Perfect 5th
9.Major 2nd
10.Perfect 4th

Now I am gonna be honest...I tried to associate the intervals with a couple of songs but that didn't work cause I am not singing the wright interval dry.gif Also it's extremly hard for me to recognize the intervals wich are played using high notes dry.gif
Now regarding the rhythm lessons(Van Halen,Srv,Texas blues)...as I mentioned before I practiced them each day and still I can't get that groove and dynamics wich is required so I think it would be better if I practice each 10 minutes per day and start a new lesson wich I will share with you every part I learn....what do youi say?The lesson that I had in mind is this one Muted-Strings-Rhythm-Guitar/ wich is closer to the other lessons that I study biggrin.gif

Hi Vince, good job with the intervals, there is only one wrong.

I recommend you to practice scales and try to sing along the notes. I consider very helpful to a guitarist to be able to sing in pitch. It's very useful for composing, improvising and learning songs. Please take some time every day for it.

The lesson you plan to start working looks great, let's go for it. wink.gif

Hi Gab! I redid the assignment nr 6 and to be honest I need a little help cause I don't know wich one I got wrong.
1.Perfect 5th
2.Perfect 4th
3.Major 3rd
4.Major 7th
5.Perfect 8th
6.Perfect 4th
7.Perfect 4th
8.Perfect 5th
9.Major 2nd
10.Perfect 4th

Also I studied ther first 2 parts of the Muted Strings Rhythm lesson and here it is the result:
Muted Strings Rhythm Guitar part 1-2
First thing I noticed is that my left hand doesn't keep up with my right hand.Also I am muting the low E with the tip of the index finger but it still makes an annoying sound even though it doesn't vibrate. mad.gif

Hi mate! Good job! The only wrong one is the number 6.

The muted lesson is on the right track, but there is still room to make it sound much groovier. Your timing is not precise when you play the palm muted rhythm, and the melodic line is not appearing smooth there. A good exercises would be to follow the groove with 16th muted strums to get the groovy feel while closing your eyes and following the rhythm with your whole body.

The lesson choice is excellent. Keep on the hard work!

Hi Gab! Thank you for your kind words!I rechecked the question nr 6 and the answer is Major 6th. biggrin.gif
I also experiemented with 16th muted strums and I can say...Are you sure?smile.gif Cause 16th on 160bpm is crazy fast and It's really hard to keep up...

I was thinking on this as a 80 bpm backing, so go for 8th notes. biggrin.gif

The 6th is a 6th, exactly! wink.gif

Hi Gab!Long time no see...Unfortunetly I couldn't study much in this period so that's why there was no news from me....The Muted String lesson is going well but I am not fully happy cause I am not relaxed when I play it...so I gues I will have to work harder untill I can play it naturaly.
I finsed assignment nr 7 of the ear training but I can't recognize all the intervals by ear and voice so I think it's better to create my own assignments untill I am 100% that I can pass to minor intervals.
Here are the answers for asisgnment nr 7:

1.Major 3rd
2.Major 6th
3.Perfect 5th
4.Major 7th
5.Major 2nd
6.Perfect 4th
7.Major 6th
8.Perfect 4th
9.Major 3rd
10.Perfect 5th
