Absolutely thank YOU, you are a great human being cool.gif

Ok, I need to get some of my limited skills back in the Rock Pop solo and also the Fu Manchu. I should get a video to REC by Friday for the Rock Pop solo but do you want me to post it here first? The Fu Manchu is evolving slowly at a slower speed than the original, it's a little quick for me at full speed so I want to master it ALL at a slower speed first then, once it is in my fingers I will increase the speed and hopefully get it to the REC zone.

Tonight I did my ear training and I did a little track for the Tone Workshop.

One small problem, I am in Spain from 1st-9th April so will lose skill again but life has to be lived eh?

Cheers

Phil

Hi Phil! Great stuff and nice phrase! Life has to be lived... and also we must run risks if we want to achieve goals and dreams.. so let's go for the REC without checking it first! smile.gif

I hope to see your take at REC tomorrow.

Thanks for you comments on REC Gab,

I know the timing went way off in places, I was concentrating on my bends and then at one point I noticed I was rushing and tried to pull the timing back but didn't manage it. I think a lot of my problems, apart from the bending, is that I have noodled with no direction for years and my fingers have picked up some very bad habits like one finger bending and vibrato. They will take time to fix but I will get there eventually.
At least I have started to notice that my bends are off pitch, it's just developing the skill to get them to pitch by ear and within the timing of the beats that I need to master. I find it odd that I can tell the bends aren't at the correct pitch but struggle to get them there rolleyes.gif

Cheers Gab.

Thanks for your advice Gab.

Here's another go. Can you see any improvement anywhere at all?



I'm really really struggling with bar 16 in the FuManchu lesson,
Cheers

Phil

Hi Phil, yes! I really note improvements on the three elements that I marked and said that you had to work. I notice more bends on pitch, tighter playing and your vibrato a bit more consistent. There is still work to do since there are still bends that don't hit the pitch but it's just a matter of time and practice, the progress can be noted. You are doing a good job.

Thanks Gab,

Would that score higher in REC? I'm keen to move on but not until I've scored a pass. Obviously I'm not going to get it as good as the teacher but I hope to get it good enough for a pass at my level.

Cheers

I think that it's around 7.5 so maybe it passes maybe not, it's really close.

Thanks Gab,
I'll keep trying, it would be good if I can improve enough to pass before I go to Spain then when I come back we can pick a new solo. I'm still struggling with Fu Manchu rolleyes.gif it's bar 16 that I'm stuck at. Just can't get it. Hopefully one of these times it will just happen.

Ear training answers. I struggled a little bit working out the intervals. I didn't know what key they were in, for instance I'm sure #1 is a major 3rd because of the fret position but in A Major but when I looked at the scale generator I noticed that there is no C in A Major. This is why I have put the notes in brackets so that you can explain if I have got the interval name wrong but got the correct notes. I hope you understand what I am trying to say.

1: Major 3rd (G# C)
2: Perfect 5th (D A)
3: Major 3rd (G cool.gif
4: Octave (C# C#)
5: Major 3rd (F# A#)
6: Perfect 4th (D# A#) This one confused me. I had to detune my low E to match the low note and I used the chord generator to find that C# Major has both of these notes in.
7: Octave (B cool.gif
8: Major 3rd (B D#)
9: Perfect 5th (G# D)
10: Major 3rd (F A)

I think I have matched the notes ok but not sure if I have worked out all of the intervals correctly. This took most of my lesson time tonight with all of the cross checking to find out which scales had the notes in so I could work out the interval. I know on some we can check back to the diagram in the 2nd assignment but not all. It was good fun though and hopefully the sound of the intervals will get into our heads so we won't have to cross check with diagrams wink.gif I did recognise a couple of the Major 3rds right away but still didn't have the confidence to enter the answer without checking biggrin.gif

It's all good.

Thanks for this workshop Gab, it's great.

Cheers

Phil

Hi Phil! Good job with the intervals! It's great to see how your ear is being polished with the pass of the assignments. This is not an easy task, and you did a very good job. The intervals and note names are perfect except that there is 1 wrong interval. As I want you to get the most of this assignments, I won't tell you which one is wrong, so you should re-check them all...

I didn't get what you mean here:

"I didn't know what key they were in, for instance I'm sure #1 is a major 3rd because of the fret position but in A Major but when I looked at the scale generator I noticed that there is no C in A Major."

Sorry Gab,

I meant that I was unsure of the interval because I thought the notes would all be in the key of A Major like the first two assignments. I didn't trust my ear enough and thought that it could possible be a 4th, then I checked the scale generator and found a key that had those notes in, that then confirmed that it was a 3rd. I hope this makes sense. I'm struggling to put it into words. rolleyes.gif

I'll do them all again tonight.

Cheers

Phil

Update: Sorry about the faces, I didn't preview my post and didn't realise that the B follow by ) gave a cool.gif
There were a couple of mistakes on the note logging (9 and 10) and the incorrect interval was number 6. What I notice as I do these is that I am finding the first note much quicker than I used to, I am not hunting the fretboard like I used to, maybe a couple of frets away most of the time, finding the interval note is getting quicker too, I just struggle to remember if it's a 4th or 5th or major or perfect. The main thing for me though is that I am finding the notes quicker. I will continue to do this exercise every night. I am in Spain next week so will have to catch up on the next assignment when I get back. I'm really really enjoying these assignments and hope they go on forever wink.gif Maybe in later stages we can have three, four and five note runs and maybe more. They don't need to have a melody for now, just notes played like you play them at the moment, this gives our beginner ears time to match the notes wink.gif

1: Major 3rd ( G# C )
2: Perfect 5th ( D A )
3: Major 3rd ( G B )
4: Octave ( C# C# )
5: Major 3rd ( F# A# )
6: Perfect 5th ( D# A# )
7: Octave ( B B )
8: Major 3rd ( B D# )
9: Perfect 5th ( G# A# )
10: Major 3rd ( C E )

Only had a small amount of time today but I will always give my ear training priority. Do you think this is wise?

Cheers

Phil

Ah ok! No, that's the main difference on this week's assignment. The intervals starts from different roots, wasn't it clear in the explanations? If not I should edit it...

Well it may be clear to others but, I thought that all notes would be from the same scale, just different places on the neck. That is what confused me at first. So can we take it that the first note of each interval is the root note of the scale?

Cheers

Phil
