Day 42. Concluding 1*** combinations

Today I played 1*** finger variations for the last time for now in order to start practicing 2*** ones. Also my fretboard knowledge was checked once again. Besides I implemented palm muting and thumb snares playing Demons by Imagine Dragons.

Fretboard knowledge

Finally I got back to this exercise. As before – here is my first attempt. Finished in 1:55.

Off-camera I managed to do it in 1:32 and it was my best attempt yet. Unfortunately I couldn’t repeat that result on camera. So there is my 1:39 attempt.

Imagine Dragons – Demons

I implemented thumb snare in verses and palm muting in pre-choruses. It was fun. Maybe one day I’ll be able to sing along, but at this point my singing is completely awful…

Summary

Finally the cover is done so are 1*** combinations. Tomorrow there will be many new exercises which I’m really excited about.
