Day 67. Sleepy day

Today I slept for several hours during the day and had time to practice only in the evening. Anyway, I increased the speed for 1234s and came up with a simple chord progression.

1234 exercise

3124 on the 5th fret

8th notes @ 140 bpm

3142 on the 5th fret

8th notes @ 140 bpm

3214 on the 5th fret

8th notes @ 140 bpm. Still the hardest one for me of these three.

Scales

Major scales

8th notes @ 150 bpm. Today it was not my best attempt.

Minor scales

8th notes @ 150 bpm. Yesterday this was played better as well.

Strumming

Module 15 pattern

120 bpm. Still having issues with pressure applied while playing substitutes.

Ear training

Got to the level with Perfect 4th again, it’s becoming consistent. But my overall score is not the best today.

Songs

My Chord Progression
Gravity Falls Opening
Marilyn Manson – Sweet Dreams
Cream – Sunshine of Your Love [Intro]
Black Sabbath – Paranoid
Green Day – Castaway
Green Day – Welcome to Paradise
The Offspring – The Kids Aren’t Alright

Summary

Finally, tomorrow I’ll have all the time I need for usual complete practice. I’m happy with speed at which I’m increasing bpm for 1234s, but scales could be played more consistently at this point.
