Hi mate! Thanks for this info. I'll share a suggested routine for this first week.

Warming up (5 minutes)
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Picking-Arpeggios/

alternate picking work (15 minutes)
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Altern...king-Workout-2/

legato work (15 minutes)
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Bens-Land-Of-Legato/

phrasing workout (25 minutes)
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/BB-King-Blues/



During the phrasing workout I recommend you to learn 1 part each day of the week. Learn to play it, pay attention to bending, vibrato, dynamics. Analyse the scale that is being used, the notes choice and how they relate with the backing's chords. Then play it over the backing track, create variations and combine it with your own phrases and improvisation. The idea of this part of the practice is to learn the lessons, incorporate new licks but also develop your own voice in guitar.


What do you think?

Hi friend! Congrats on your hard work!

You've been working a lot during this first week. Learning and being able to play all this stuff is not a small thing! Well done!

I think that each lesson has room for improvements and to get more familiar with the exercises and/or phrases. In the technical lessons the main thing to improve is timing, but there are also noises to avoid and parts that should sound more consistent and clear. It would be interesting if you can identity this parts to give some special attention.

The bb king lesson covers other three techniques that need work: bending, vibrato and dynamics. This lesson is great for this so I recommend you to play along with the original trying to emulate the instructor's approach to each of those elements.


My suggestion is to continue for another week with this same routine, do you agree?

Hi mate! Awesome work!!

Just some details:

- Try to avoid left hand fingers movement when playing alternate picking (warming up and alternate picking workout). The movement should start from your wrist.

- Be careful with timing when playing legato. It's one of the difficult things of this technique as well as making the notes sound clear.

- Be sure to don't rush timing on BB king blues lesson. If you listen to your video you'll notice that some licks are not going tight with the lesson.


What do you think if you keep on practicing during 3 days with these things in mind and then we design routine #2?

Hey!

Today i didnt post videos, because im learning new lessons and dont know them enough in this short period of time.
Im just informing you about this what am i doing.
One more question. What do you think, should i play 1-3 times each lesson from routine #1 to try focus on some details or should i just move on new lessons, and maybe in some period of time back to them. What is your opinning about this?

Thanks for the update! I would play the lessons twice to keep them in memory, it's a good idea.
