This
is Peery habits, level 2, muscular lesson
number 6.
This week, you're going to practice muscle
builders and power fingers,
and metronome 100.
Just doing a lot of repetitions here
making sure that all of your form
is correct.
You can choose any skips that you want.
So, the same ones you did last week, or
choose new ones.
Just that doesn't matters, it just matters
that you're doing the exercises every day.
We're also going to add this week, our G
major chord and
do that in the hand over hand exercise.
Continue practicing C major chord.
Just like you did last week you should be
at metronome 100 by this point.
If you're not, don't add the g major
chord,
just keep going with the c major chord.
Until you can get that 100.
So lets talk about g major chord.
Last lesson we talked a little bit about
what a major chord is and
what it sounds like.
And how to make it.
So let's see if you remember what we
talked about and
figure out what G major chord might look
like.
So do you think you could go to the piano
and find a G major chord?
Give it a try.
Okay.
Alright.
Well, here's what it looks like.
See if you did it right.
We put G on the bottom, and then we do
[MUSIC]
skip
[MUSIC]
and skip.
Looks just like C major.
Let's listen to it.
[MUSIC]
Sounds good, sounds just like C major.
[MUSIC]
Nice.
C.
[MUSIC]
G, okay then in the left hand we'll start
with out lowest finger five
[MUSIC]
skip up.
[MUSIC]
skip
up
[MUSIC].
So the notes are G, B, D.
Fingers five three one in left hand and
fingers one three five in right hand.
Just like c major.
So, here's a demo for g major hand over
hand exercise.
So, I'll set metronome 100.
Ready go.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax.
Prepare.
We'll use G as our top note this
week since we're doing G.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, we're done.
Alright, so make sure you're doing all
those steps.
If you can't do G major quite that
quickly, move down the metronome
or don't practice with the metronome.
And when you're finished and can get it up
to 100 all the way through,
then you're ready to go on to Muscular
Lesson Number 7.
