I am trying to work a little bit towards the suggestions you gave me:

- Try more rhythm variation. Most of your phrases include 16th notes, try other note values.
- Incorporate some other technique to your phrasing: slides, legato, more bend, vibrato, etc.
- Give more dynamics to your phrases.

I have especially difficulties with the 1st one...I am not really that familiar with time signatures. But I gues a 16th note is 4 notes/beat?
Because I am trying to mix in some 4th notes then...1/beat, but I can't really get it to sound good.

And would triplets also work in this setting? Or do you need a different time signature in the backing then as well?
Because I can't get it to work just yet, but it might be that my natural tendency is to play 16th's

And may I make a request that when the deadline is due, we finish up the tasks by you playing how you would have done them Gabe? That might be quite useful biggrin.gif

Hi Lester! Great to see you totally focused! smile.gif

About rhythm, you are right, 16th notes are 4 notes per beat. You can also play triplets over this backing, you can always play triplets over any meter.

I recommend you to check these lessons to clarify these concepts:

Here is my take on the 3rd task smile.gif It's a bit sloppy here and there still, but I did vary some with timing and took some ideas from Kris's lesson:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Your-First-Phrases/

I highly suggest for everyone to have a look, it's perfect for these tasks smile.gif

Hi Lester,

I can hear on this take that you are exploring in the right way here. You don't sound comfortable yet but it's normal, you need more time to assimilate the new concepts that you are applying here, which are many and it's tricky to think on everything at the same time. You have to work on 1 element at a time, and with the pass of sessions things will become natural and you won't need to think on everything.

Keep on the hard work!

Thanks Gab,
Looking forward to it. Hope you recharged your batteries.

ASSIGNMENT II: Jamming over a backing track in C with triads / Vertical approach

Hi guys! In this new assignment the idea is to get into major triads. We will explore the fret-board horizontally focusing on 2 major triads in order to get out of the common scale shapes to find new ways of creating melodies connected with the chords from the backing.

Before we start, for those that want to go deeper with the theory behind this assignment, here is a list of thread that you should read:

Mastering Notes on the Fretboard
Building Musical Intervals for Guitarists
How to Build and Play Triads on Guitar


- Backing Tracks and Progressions:

Backing I:

Attached File  Backing_track_I.mp3 ( 1.2MB ) Number of downloads: 32

Attached File  Backing_track_1.gp5 ( 3.45K ) Number of downloads: 25


extended backing: Attached File  Backing_track_I_extended.mp3 ( 2.97MB ) Number of downloads: 22


| C | C | F | F |



Backing II:

Attached File  Backing_track_II.mp3 ( 3.56MB ) Number of downloads: 38

Attached File  Backing_track_2.gp5 ( 1.69K ) Number of downloads: 19



| C | C | Dm | Dm | Am | Am | F | F |



TASK 1: C & F major triads on first 3 strings:

Attached Image

Attached Image

- Dedicate 1 day to learn each of the triads. Notice where you have the root on each shape along the fret board.
- If possible try to visualize the Caged system chord shapes.
- Play each one moving horizaontally.
- Connect both triads.


TASK 2: Playing over backing 1

- Now that you know the triads, play along with the backing track following the chords. What I mean by "following the chords"? Play C triad when C is sounding and play F triad when F is sounding. Start with random notes then start creating melodies.

- Record yourself and share it here.



TASK 3: Playing over backing 2

- Experiment over this new backing using both triads. Try to find out how the triads sound over the different chords. How C triad sounds over Am, how C triad sounds over Dm, how F triad sounds over Am, and how F triad sounds over Dm.
- Take your own conclusions and share them with us here.

- Record yourself and share it here.


DEADLINE: March 12 th


Who is in?
