Week 15. Summary

This week was kinda relaxed due to the holidays, so the main achievement is that I finally get through all the 1234 combinations and will now leave this exercise for a while 🙂

Also, one of the main things this week was to use that technique Brandon told me to use – holding the pinky on the guitar body under the strings. I’m not completely used to it and there are some questions on it in today’s video.

Anyway, have a great week everyone!

The goals for this week were:

  • [Done] 4123, 4132, 4213, 4231, 4312, 4321 as 8th notes at 150 bpm across the neck
  • [Done] Practice ear training at tonedear.com daily
  • [Done] Kids by MGMT solo at 160 bpm consistently
  • CAGED shapes for each kind of chords in less than 1:20

My goals for the next week:

  • Scales as 16th notes at 90 bpm consistently
  • Kids by MGMT solo at 170 bpm consistently
  • CAGED shapes for each kind of chords in less than 1:20
