This
is Peery habits level 2, Muscular Lesson
9.
Well, I hope I saw your video, and I am
sure you are doing a great job.
Please make sure to go over all of my
comments, and
very carefully think about them while
you're practicing this week.
You'll continue to get so great, you're
doing an excellent job, really great work.
Let's go on to Muscular 9, and what you're
doing this week is continuing
to practice muscle builders and power
fingers, at metronome 100.
Choosing any skips you want.
Just do this as a warm up, it's a great
way to get muscles ready for
the rest of your practice.
It's also, your muscles should be forming
this habit now,
and you won't have to concentrate as much
as you're doing this exercise.
Just make it a habit to do these exercises
every day.
Don't skip on them.
And now we're going to add a new way to do
hand over hand.
So, if I gave you the feedback from your
video that your C, G and
F major cords were absolutely perfect and
I had nothing to say,
you do not need to practice them anymore.
So that's very great.
But if I gave you any sort of comment or
feedback of improvement.
Please continue to practice them until you
can send in a video where
I can tell you that everything you're
doing is absolutely correct.
So either keep practicing your chords or
you can move on to our new item, which is
C arpeggio.
So, if you're ready to go onto C arpeggio,
we're going to do that at metronome 100.
And, arpeggio is just a fancy word for a
broken chord.
So we were doing solid chord, chords
before, and
now we're just going to play each note
separately.
So here's C-major chord in arpeggio form.
[MUSIC]
Easy, right?
It's actually easier than playing it all
together.
So, its, this is going to be a breeze.
The one thing your going to watch with
arpeggio is that your third finger is
always curved.
This is a good exercise to see if you play
that three flat.
So, make sure you play with that third
finger really rounded up.
So, here is an example of C arpeggio hand
over hand Metino 100.
Let's see, I'll start here.
Ready, go.
[MUSIC]
So you saw at the top
[MUSIC]
I just played C, not the whole thing.
So just the top note, just like we did in
chord, and
then when you come down you come back
backwards.
So you start with the G and you do-
[MUSIC]
Coming down.
[MUSIC]
And
that's C arpeggio, so please add that to
your practice chart this week.
Practice it every day, five days this
week.
And then you'll be ready to go on to
Muscular Lesson number 10.
