Hi Laurent, thanks for the update. Yes, this is a lot of work. I assume that you are having around 3 hours to dedicate to music, don't you?

I wanted to check the amount of time to know how much time you are dedicating to each topic to be sure that you are covering too much and not going deep enough.

Hi Gabriel

Somedays i spend 7hours, and somedays 1 or 2, that's depand on my wife patience smile.gif (rarely 0....... )

but your are right when you bet on 3 hours , it's an average value.

i do not schedule a lot, maybe it's a fool, i cans spend 2 hours play the same stuff, but globaly on two or three days i try to works once on all.

That's ok. You sound comfortable with your current plan so I think that it's appropriated at this moment, mostly based on the fact that I'm noting good performance in the different threads and tasks that you are participating.

I feel that the current plan covers everything you should cover to progress as a musician so keep going.

This song has one of the most beautiful melodies I've ever heard. I remember listening a lot to this version when I was a teenager:




I think that it's a good backing to train your improvisation and soloing skills. As we've talked at the chat room, remember to work focusing on different concepts each time when practicing, and when just jamming for fun, do what your heart says. smile.gif

These two are killer:

Hi Laurent, thanks for the update.

That's a very complete schedule. As making music is the main goal and when you really assimilate what you are learning and practicing, I recommend to dedicate more time to improvising and composing. You didn't shared here how much time you dedicate to each topic but I just wanted to give this suggestion in the case you dedicate the same amount of time to each task.

Keep on the hard work!

Hi Gabriel

i feel more confortable with struming, and i don"t know why, but i thought i was stucked for the 2 last week, and suddently, since this morning, things are clearer, i play faster, with more chosen notes, my play approache is different today.

i have done a run ( 1h40m LOL) while jamm'in on cantaloupe island (from erbie hancock), i love this song cause i can jam for hours and try a lot of patterns and arpeggios , and now i feel better on, non stop playin, doing new something, a new overall color, while using my habits and adding something new.

definitely, practice pay, really,i must be patient and play play play.....

maybe a day, i'll grow up and be a fine guitar player biggrin.gif
