Class2020, June, Picking on one (each) string,exercise videos

Let us make June dedicated to picking exercises on one (each) string.

The relevant pdfs would be Right Hand Syllabus v6-14-14 from Pebber's website where
these exercises are numbered 2.31-2.33 with 2.34 (subdivisions) and Picking Exercises Worksheet.

Best relevant videos (in my opinion) on Youtube are:

Module 1 Overview Part 1A (all down)
Module 1 Overview Part 1B (all up)
Daily Practice Module 1 Part 1 (newer from 2015)

and also Daily Practice Module 1 Part 1 (older 2010)
Daily Practice Part 1 and 2
Picking concepts 1A-1D
Picking Basics 2A
etc.

Things to watch for while practicing:

-even (time) spacing between the notes
-first note in the series right on the click of the metronome
-only thumb and first finger move while doing scalpel picking
-other fingers pulled in as much as possible/comfortable

It would be nice if we could all put up one (or a couple) video(s) in the first week of June and then another one (or
a couple) in the last week of June to see if we can make some progress in 1 month or just so that there is some
"external" motivation for practicing these specific exercises.

Of course we all do the exercises at tempos and beat subdivisions we feel confident with
at the moment of making a video.

I suggest video length of 2-3 minutes so there is enough time to see how good/bad we do the particular exercise
but they are not too long to take too much of any potential viewer's time.

"Challenge": do good on at least one odd (3,5,7 or 9 or 11 if you are really brave ;)) beat subdivision.

I thought this thread to only contain videos of us doing the exercises and comments on them
and take general discussion about anything we feel like talking about to another thread
called Class2020, June, thoughts and troubles :)

Good luck and stick with it :)

Cheers

Here are my videos (although not June quite yet :) ).

Sound a disaster :/ so watch out and start with low volume

Picking hopefully not as much of a disaster :)

Scalpel all down, all up, down up









and an attempt at sarod

Hi MadJo,

to me your picking technique looks rather well.

And the timing seems accurate most of the time. Only on all up video
it sounds like you lose the click a few times(I might be mistaken)

I tend to check myself by recording my practice and listening to the audio at
reduced video speed (75% or even 50% but then the sound tends to get weird :) )
and then try to practice more the things i hear go wrong
which is sometimes hard to notice while practicing.

Anyway, good job and keep it up.

Cheers

Hi roger75,

Great practice video,I feel your timing looks good and I think ur using arm for picking as pebber told me to correct it and instead to concentrate on thumb and first finger. Ur guitar color is cool.

See you.

Hi Roger,

nice of you to join in with your practice video.

At some points it looks like you lose timing (to me it seems on the lowest
and highest number of notes per beat), the ones in the middle sound
good to my (bear in mind also beginner) ear.

Technique seems tight up until 5 or 6 notes per beat and at that point
it seems you use a bit more arm/hand movement for higher number of notes per beat.

Drifting off in timing seems to be a common beginner problem we all need to work on.

The technique should get better at faster tempos or higher number of notes per beat
for us all if we just keep on practicing and taking seriously Pebber's words from his videos.

One other thing, I feel it would be best to keep the number of exercises in one 2-3 minute video
low. For example, instead of putting 1-10 notes per beat in a single video pick 2 or 3 (like 3,4,5 or
4,5,6 or whatever else ) so that there is some longer period of time on the same stuff
and it is easier then to watch/listen for inconsistencies or mistakes.

Anyway, keep up the good work and thumbs up for making the video.

Stick with it :)

Cheers

Here is some helpful advice from Pebber who made an effort to steer us in the right direction.

If you have not seen it already here it is.



Also, if you want, we can stick to picking
on one string and try to sort out our timing problems a bit during July
and open a Class2020 thread on adjacent picking next month or even later
so that we don't rush it at the expense of doing it right.

If someone would like to upload recent picking on adjacent strings practice video
we can easily make a thread dedicated to those exercises named Class2020 adjacent string picking
just to keep things/topics/exercises separated and hopefully easier to follow that way.

Cheers
