Ear training

It’s the first time ever I’ve got to the level with 9 intervals. My ear is getting better, and that’s a fact. Unfortunately, I failed my weekly goal to practice every day, but the results are getting better and better, which is marvelous. My best result ever!

Songs

MGMT – Kids [Solo]

8th notes @ 140-145 bpm. I’ve decided to work more on consistency so the idea was to play the whole solo again and again at the given speed until it sounds good for a few times in a row. The speed I got to is not that impressive – 145 bpm. But I think that this approach is what will lead me to the finite goal of playing the solo at the original speed.

Summary

I’m not sure what to write here, so this section will be optional since tomorrow.
