Week 19. Summary

I have a plane in 10 hours, so this summary will be short 🙂

The goals I set myself this week were quite over reasonable, so in order to reach them I had to increase the speed by 10 bpm daily while playing as 8th notes. So it was pretty tough and the result at final speed is not very clean. But I managed to film some pretty decent attempts on camera, so the goals are now complete.

I won’t have any guitar on a vacation so I’ll continue ear training and start practicing 6 levels of rhythm from the Module 22. I really hope that the Internet will be there and I’ll be able to post something for the next week. Don’t wanna fail the challenge because of this vacation.

Anyway, here’s the short video with this week results.

The goals for this week were:

  • [Done] Mixolydian scales as 16th notes at 90 bpm
  • [Done] Major scales (A string) as 16th notes at 90 bpm
  • [Done] Major scales in 3rds as 16th notes at 75 bpm
  • [Done] Major scales in 4 note pattern as 16th notes at 75 bpm
