Since I completed B2B I wanted to come up with a practice routine that would really reinforce the important basics that were presented in the course. I came up with an aid that you can make at home.
I created 24 Power Point slides each with one a major or minor key signature in big bold letters. I then set the slide show to automatically change slides every 60 seconds. You then start the presentation and as each slide changes, you play the scale of the key signature displayed on the screen. It’s a good way for a newbie (like me) to learn the scales and the note positions on the fretboard. Kind of like musical flashcards.
But wait! There’s more!
I then attached one of the 6 Ultimate Groove workout mp3 files to each slide and when the mp3 finishes, the slide changes to a new key.
So with one practice aid I am working on my scales, note location and Ultimate Groove all at the same time. These are 3 fundamentals that @JoshFossgreen encourages and I wanted to make sure that I practiced them.
At the speed that my slides run, I get about a half hour of practice with this.
Thoughts and comments are welcome and encouraged.
