Day 102. Feeling better

Today I felt a bit better and decided to finally return to the normal routines instead of playing just 1234s.

1234 exercise

With holding my pinky on the guitar body as the anchor point it’s still not very comfortable but I’m getting used to it.

Scales

I don’t know how, but my scales got worse even at the lower speed… Will practice them more to get rid of this inconsistency.

Major scales

16th notes @ 80 bpm

Minor scales

Ear training

10 intervals, baby! I’m getting really good at this.

Today I was working on consistency. As I skipped this thing for a few days I started from 140 bpm once again and then gradually got to 155 bpm.
