Day 89. Toothache and practice

Today I’ve been practicing through the pain after my visit to the dentist. I just repeated everything I did yesterday.

1234 exercise

4123 on the 5th fret

8th notes @ 150 bpm

4132 on the 5th fret

8th notes @ 150 bpm

4213 on the 5th fret

8th notes @ 150 bpm

Scales

Major scales

16th notes @ 90 bpm

Minor scales

16th notes @ 90 bpm

Strumming

Module 17 pattern [All of Me]

Today I managed to play All of Me perfectly both with open and barre chords, so this is time to leave this song and switch my attention to the next modules.

Open chords

120 bpm

Barre chords

120 bpm

Module 18 pattern [Autumn Leaves]

70 bpm

Songs

MGMT – Kids [Solo]

8th notes @ 140-155 bpm. I just couldn’t play decently because of the toothache, so I even got really mad in the end of the video and just stopped playing. But I tried to implement something useful – pulling-off instead of picking in one part where there are 32nd notes in the solo. At the higher speed picking all of them would be literally impossible.

Summary

Toothache got me so hard that at first I thought that I’m gonna skip this day. But fortunately after taking some pills the pain reduced and I managed to maintain my daily practice and upload schedule 🙂
