Weekly Warm Up No. 56
Hope you’re staying warm. We’ve been cooking up a storm as the cold weather has descended upon the mid-Atlantic. For those of you that celebrate the recent holiday, how’d it go? Our bird finished perfectly (at 9pm). Ah, math….and an oven…. Honestly, it’s all about the side dishes for me. Filling up on mashed potatoes is always a win in my book.
One of the areas we wanted to develop as part of the WWU has been scales and this week is the week!
Our session will open with a few right hand arpeggio patterns and left hand slur patterns to get your fingers moving. Following this work, we’ll dive into the one octave major scale using the top three strings of the guitar. For this week the focus will be on understanding: the left hand pattern, right hand alternation, and string crossing.
Quarter note set @ 80 BPM.
