Your goal is to play this melody.
Learn the melody slowly and effectively, by applying the LISP routine: Listen, imagine, sing, play.
Get the Em chord in place.
Notice that I play the lalalala with the index and annular fingers alternating between them on each note. Also to play the lalalala on the G chord, lift the 3rd finger up and place it on the D note.
Now Stop the video and do it on your own. After each repetition ask yourself the following:
If your answer is no to any of the questions, repeat the full L.IS.P routine.
Play the full song with me.
Get your Em chord in place.
Repeat this step a few times before moving on.
Now Stop the video and play the song on your own. After each repetition ask yourself the following:
If your answer is no to any of the questions, repeat this whole video from the beginning. Have fun.
As mentioned, in each lesson you will learn a new section of the full final song of this course. This final song, brings to life all the musical objectives of this course. If you can play it and have fun at the same time, will mean that you have learnt effectively.
Therefore, I will ask you in every new lesson, to consolidate all you have previously learnt.
But, please make sure you have completed all previous assignments, in a satisfactory manner, as they are designed to break up the learning process into fun, and comfortable steps.
Play along with me song number one but at a quicker tempo.
Stop the video, and play the song on your own, at your comfortable tempo, which is the slowest tempo you can do it at. After each play ask yourself the following:
If your answer is no to any of these questions, repeat the exercise until you only have yes answers.
If after a few repeats, you still cannot play it right, and start feeling frustrated, stop and repeat lesson 2, to further consolidate this song, by practicing it in more manageable steps.
