Since I have been taking a break from my private lessons, has been using the time to really hone in on what I've learned. I re visited the C major scale in the concept he wanted me to get really well under my belt: the concept of key changes :)
I have put myself in guitar school all over again! Instead of feeling pressured to get solos completely perfect, I am giving myself assignments for certain things and my assignment for this week was to get the rhythm of the song up to speed and played standing up as if I was in a performance. Next week I will start really nailing on the solo! I already know it but I can't play it up to speed yet very well.
I dedicate this video to @[4668:@Alicia Willis] who inspired me to have fun and let go and goof off if I want to be myself. I also dedicate this to @[59877:@Kat the metalhead] who doesn't ever give a shit what people think about how she looks or how she plays. She rocks hard on the camera and she is always true to herself. Something that I have forgotten about over the last few years.
I was so confused by what @firsty lasty said to another student but I asked Bill for help and he clarified it for me and showed me what it means. This was so fucking cool! Let me know if I messed anything up!
This is my progress so far with the new NorthTale song :) I present it to Bill on Saturday and I decided to do it on my own to see if I could learn some things by ear with with what all he has taught me. I know the key signature, the chords and the scales being used (thanks Andrei!) . As always feedback is much appreciated! I also chose this song because there is a lot of arpeggio work, down strokes and bends throughout and those are all the things he wants me to work on.
We worked really hard on this song and I'm proud that I learned it without even listening to the song! Holly helped figure out a chord as well and we had fun utilizing my interval training to figure out the harmonies. Hope you enjoy it!
There is so much that Bill has taught me. And there is one amazing thing that finally sank in; actually a couple of them, that I can't wait to share with you. First thing is the chord training where I had to find chords knowing the notes. Then I had to improvise over the chords using those shapes. Then I wrote a little riff. The end is me STILL struggling doing the scales up and down the neck. I left my mistakes in. I slow down to try to find myself😂😂
I am finally getting back into one of my biggest passions again! I don't care if i have to start back at square one again. Unlike electric guitar, every single note you play has to have it's own volume. In these arp...
