I never posted day 3 of learning this...oh well...this is my 4th day and I completed it so that was the kinda learning process I normally go through. Some are a lot more difficult than others...this was a pretty easy one tho!
Yesterday I posted my first day of working on pentatonic VI.
This is day 2. I'd estimate I spent 45 -50 minutes yesterday and about 40 minutes today before shooting this video.
A lot of times I will let myself learn it up to speed a little sloppy and once my hands are use to the speed THEN I will back down to 60 or 70% and really focus on perfecting it. And then slowly work up to 85 or 90 over time and then drop back down to maybe 80% and eventually I'll get it to 100%.
A while ago Jak said I should make a video teaching my process and techniques of learning Syn's Etudes (Great Fun!).
So I decided to post a day by day series of what my learning process looks like and hopefully it encourages you guys! Not everyone can sight read Syn's etudes at full speed like he presumably does (Not fair!).
So this is for anybody who feels intimidated or thinks an etude may be too hard to learn. Don't be afraid of it! Give it a try..start slow and document your progress daily. I know I post a lot of mine but all you see is the finished product...it doesn't start that way.
So give one a try if you don't already use them...I would say 25-40% of my guitar playing is Syn's etudes because I'm a huge believer in mastering fundamental guitar techniques!
Obviously it's important to work on playing songs to help with palm muting and playing riffs, which combines 1 or more of these FUNdamental techniques to make beautiful music!
Let me know what you think!!
