Week 12. Summary

This week was quite successful. I got another six combinations of 1234 to the point of playing them as 8th notes at 150 bpm across the neck, increased my endurance in strumming with barre chords and substitutes, learned and played All of Me, watched Module 18 and started learning the solo of Kids by MGMT in order to make a cover of it with my friend.

So here is the video.

The goals for this week were:

  • [Done] 3124, 3142, 3214, 3241, 3412, 3421 as 8th notes at 150 bpm across the neck
  • Get to the level with 7 intervals on ear training at tonedear.com 5 times
  • [Done] All of Me consistently at 140 bpm (both open and barre chords versions)
