Laps Exercise • This is a solid starter exercise to practice the synchronization of the hands and position/s. These types of exercises are truly endless. This is my favorite for beginners.
E Major Scale • In a line. The Pull. Pull Challenge. Improvising. The Major scale can be built by using 221-2221, where each number represents the amount of half steps [frets to the next tone]. We consider position for training.
Twinkle Melody • No one is too old for a little twinkle. We are encouraging you to figure out the melody with just the first tones, & figure out other known melodies [a skill to develop].
C Major Scale • In this session, we play the C Major scale in 3 ways [on string 2 & 5, & in P1]. We also improvise together.
Strumming Pre-Chord Sounds • We strum the open chord and mute. We also discuss range.
Em to G6 • In this lesson, we play our first chord change, E minor to G6. This is a lift and land.
8ths for Set Duration • This practice module always yields outcomes. We can keep track of time mentally, or use a stop watch. When using a clock, let it roll up to 3 or 5 or 8 minutes [or count down], and just play 8th notes - any tones, any order, single tones, double and triple stops [mini-chords], fuller chords, arpeggios, etc. - for the duration; try not to stop for a set period of time. Experiment. Just keep going!
