Yume no Wa Practice 10-13-2014

I chose to practice the first part (0:04~0:14) because I sometimes play the wrong string for the last 「七&十」. My goal for today was to be able to play the part smoothly and not making mistakes 5 times in a row.

I chose to practice the second part (0:14~0:35) because I thought that if I remember this part, I can memorize the part before because it has the same pattern. Also, my picks sometimes get off when I’m playing this part so I needed to come up with an idea of how to play this part without the picks getting off. Now, most of the time I play this part, my picks doesn’t come off.

Overall, I think I used the time effectively during today’s practice and I mostly can play the part I couldn’t last time. Next time, I would look a little ahead from the place we’re playing as a group now because I play most of the parts we already practiced now.

Yume no Wa Practice 10-06-2014

I chose to practice the first part in the video (0:04~0:32) because the transitions are quite hard. I sometimes play the wrong string. My goal for today’s practice was to be able to play it at least 5 times without making a mistake.

I chose to practice the second part in the video (0:33~0:50) because it is hard to play the right hand. It is hard for me because there are many strings between the two strings I’m playing with my right hand and whenever we move strings, I sometimes play the wrong string. Also, sometimes I mess up the rhythm and I play the 3 strings in different timings. I used the metronome to keep in track of the rhythm.

I used the metronome for the first time today. I think it is very useful whenever I mess up the rhythm or don’t know the rhythm. If I practice more, I think I will be able to play the two parts more smoothly.
