I tried to increase the speed of this week’s warm-up, starting at 90 BPM and increasing it by 10 till I got up to 110 BPM, it sounded alright to me I only wish I could have recorded it to see how I did.
I then looked at the slow video from yesterday, the instructor was playing it at 160 BPM, so I cranked my metronome up to this and it sounded alright, so I decided to see if I could play along with the video.
I just could not keep up with it, but I was happy that I managed to get up to 110.
I had to run through the video for today’s lesson a few times and use the TAB so that I could pick the lesson up.
Once I got it, I played it on my own a few times and then tried to play along with the slow video, I managed to play the first 3 moves of the lick but I struggled to keep up after this.
When I started getting annoyed with myself I decided it was time to put it down, but I did manage to get nearly an hour’s practise before this happened.
