We went over, ascending and descending, the pentatonic scales: playing as quarters and 8ths. I need retrain myself to play the guitar fret board with my thumb squarely at the back of the neck even when playing notes on the high strings.
The teacher also showed me how to gradually increase the speed on the metronome subtly to trick myself into strumming at greater speeds. Also, he wrote out some tabluture for the scales so I could practice them in my own time.
Overall, I’m finding the timing practice I’m getting with the metronome is improving my confidence in my guitar, improving my music skills, and will also no doubt make life a little easier when I start jamming with others.
