Day 66. Returning to practice

In comparison to yesterday today was a pretty relaxed day, so I had much more time to practice. I still didn’t want to do the note pronunciation exercise so skipped it but my routines list is fuller than yesterday.

1234 exercise

3124 on the 5th fret

8th notes @ 130 bpm

3142 on the 5th fret

8th notes @ 130 bpm

3214 on the 5th fret

8th notes @ 130 bpm

Scales

Major scales

8th notes @ 150 bpm

Minor scales

8th notes @ 150 bpm

Strumming

Module 15 pattern

120 bpm. My substitutes are still too tense. Maybe I’m doing something wrong… Anyway, I’ll just continue practicing and hopefully this issue will be fixed itself.

Ear training

I got to the level with Perfect 4th again! Have it started happening more consistently? I hope so. And I can’t help but notice the increased percentage of correct answers, which is exciting. Will practice ear training more.
