List of Goals for the week:
Warm Up: Mandolin tremolo practice week 3 as described below
Scale: Read G major ascending and descending three times each day
Repertoire: review “Banks of the Ohio” melody 3 times each day. Read through “Banks” mandolin arrangement 3 times each day.
Additional Studies: D chop chords
We continued our review of sight reading this week. The more practice you can devote to this, the better; all of our studies this session rely on sight reading! We spent time focusing on the role of the forearm in tremolo picking. We had a good review of the first one and a half arrangements of Banks of the Ohio.
