Current Assignment:

Everyone: Play along with the old songs once a day

Check out the new video below of me playing Midnight Memories on guitar.  It could be useful to play along with it.  It’ll feel easier than the original track.

Isaac: 5/28 Nice!  That intro seems right now, good job.  Let’s get another video of the whole song so you can pass!  No clicks during the intro in that video but some drummers tap on their leg with a stick in parts like that to help keep time. It makes no sound but it works the same.  Pass it!

Aleta: 4/23 Pass!  Whole song sounds good!  Nice work Aleta!

Caitlin: 5/19 Yo Caitlin!  See my note below.  Same issues, except now the E string is way out of tune too.  Tune the bass, then check that one wrong note in the bridge then you’re ready to knock out the whole structure!

5/16 Nice Caitlin!  The only part that has a wrong note is the bridge.  Check just the last note.  It should be the 10th fret on the G string.  You need to tune the G string on your bass.  It’s tuned to an f# right now, a note low.  That will make the intro and verse sound way more like the song.  Nice work!  Next goal is the whole structure.

Chelsea: 4/23 Pass!  Nice work Chelsea!  The choruses sound great now, well done.  Solid!

Addie:  5/28 Nice work on the power chords Addie!  They sound awful, but it’s only because of your tuning.  Once we get you tuned up on zoom they’ll be perfect.  Those are hard!  Nice job.  For your next video lets get after the whole song.  You may be ready!

Lisa: 4/20 Pass!  Solid work Lisa.  This one sounds awesome.  For a bonus song while we wait for your band to pick a new one I dare you to learn stitches from the Eleni band page.  It’s a fun song to play and I think it’s right at your level.  Good job Lisa!  First to pass!
