if you want to challenge yourself with
Hannon, here's the way to do it.
First is you can start back at exercise
number one.
And if you have finished all 20 exercises,
what you do is you go back to exercise
number one, you left off at exercise
number 20 at metronome 116 so you're going
to go back to number one and
the final speed for this will be one click
higher on metronome 120.
As you go through the book, the second
time you will be moving up your metronome
speeds one click for each exercise so that
you're getting faster and faster.
And our final goal speed, is around 152 to
And that will be, four notes to the beat
so right now you're doing, your hand is.
Two notes to the beat for power fingers so
we're going to, if you really want to
challenge yourself, you'll keep moving up
the metronome speed, until you get back to
152, to four notes to the beat so let me
just demonstrate on number one.
If your going through the book, again,
what a really final challenge goal would
look like so.
The other thing we're going to do to
challenge is, is make sure we go up and
down two octaves instead of one so we'll
put the right hand instead of being on
middle C, we're gonna put it down on base
C one octave away from the left hand so
let's just do number one.
Our muscle builders will be at metronome
152 one note to the beat, we really don't
ever want to go faster than metronome 200,
which is the same as 100.
So we don't wanna go faster than metronome
100 two notes to the beat.
So since we're at 152 for this one, let's
just do 152.
One note to the beat, and for power
fingers 152,
four notes to the beat I'll show you what
that looks like so
152 muscle builders, right hands down the
octave one, two, ready, go.
[SOUND] Now if you have not been
working up your hand ins one speed per tic
do not try and do pa-
Muscle builders this fast it will.
Go wrong and [LAUGH] you'll be doing it
So, the way that my fingers can, do all
the steps so
quickly is because I've done it so many
times at such a variety of speeds.
So, please don't skip steps and just go
straight to at this,
this speed It's really important also if
you're trying it this fast,
even with your muscle builders, please
send me in a video, so
I can check because a lot of times
Fingers will stay in the air.
And that's what we want to try and avoid,
is that all the fingers are always coming
down all together okay, let's show you
power fingers, metronome 152,
four notes to the beat, for our final
One, two, ready go.
So that's really fast.
If you can have that challenge for each
exercise so try and get it up to 152.
Then you'll meet the hand in challenge and
I would love to see a video of that.
