Week 32. Lots Of Muted Strumming

Hey guitar chefs!

This week I mostly focused on muted strumming, since I was told that only applying much time to its practice I would be able to improve. Other exercises were kinda sent to the background for the time being.

Despite this I only increased the speed by 5 bpm – to 185 bpm, and there is still inconsistency in my playing. Next week I’ll try to really tremendously increase the time I spend on this exercise. Will be strumming for like several sessions 10 minutes each daily or something like this. We’ll se how it goes.

Surprisingly I still managed to record almost every other thing I set as a goal this week: 1234 with strings skipping, right hand muted string skipping exercise, celtic exercise, Snow by RHCP riff… They’re not very good but if the performance was awful I wouldn’t add them to the video anyway 😀

Take care, good luck and have a nice week!

The goals for this week were:

  • Snow (Hey Oh) at 150 bpm consistently
  • [Done] Muted strumming exercise at 190 bpm
  • [Done] 1234 exercise skipping 2 strings at 130 bpm consistently
