  1. Hi, how ya doin'? Justin here.
    Welcome to IM-159.
  2. Which is the Practice Routine for Foundation 5.
  3. What we've got here is 5 minutes of your Triad practice.
  4. Which is making sure you memorize where the triads are,
  5. where the root notes are,
    and working out the string groupings 2,3,4
  6. and the minors on 2,3,4 and then practicing them.
  7. Then you've got 5 minutes on your triad chord changes
  8. so bouncing around, up and down the neck,
  9. trying to get those triad shapes as fast as you can,
  10. making sure that you remember
    what string the root note's on
  11. and remembering to look at the root note
    before you try and change to the chord.
  12. That's the trick for being able to do these kind of
    jumping all over the neck kind of changes.
  13. We've then got 5 minutes of our usual Major Scale
    with the metronome.
  14. Hopefully you're getting the speed up
    a little bit more now.
  15. You should be feeling really confident
    with your alternate picking,
  16. and really, you know,
    just working on the speed, that's it.
  17. Remember the speed, the point of the speed rather,
    is to synchronize the two hands,
  18. that's the real reason that we're doing that stuff,
  19. it's not really about you playing the scale fast.
  20. It's about getting a good co-ordination
    between the two hands.
  21. We've then got 5 minutes of Major Scale improvising,
  22. so I'm really hoping that you're letting your ear control
    the way that you play now,
  23. so not just relying on muscle memory,
  24. you're hopefully incorporating your one finger solos,
  25. and a bit of that melodic patterns,
    but still letting your ear be the boss.
  26. Next up we got 10 minutes of the J.U.S.T.I.N. Training,
  27. and/or transcribing songs on your own.
  28. I'm really hoping at this stage,
    that you're doing plenty of your own transcribing,
  29. because that is the key
    to becoming a good guitar player.
  30. I can't emphasise it to you strongly enough.
  31. Learning songs on your own
    is the thing that will make you good.
  32. And a failure to do that,
  33. to ignore my advice and not do any transcribing,
  34. means that you probably won't ever become
    a really confident guitar player.
  35. You might be able to kinda play the notes,
  36. you'll be able to play some songs,
  37. but there'll be always that thing missing.
  38. Lotsa times I meet guitar players
  39. and they come for a lesson, they go
  40. well I can do this, and I can do this,
    but there's something missing.
  41. And nine times out of ten,

  42. the something missing is that
    they haven't been doing any transcribing.
  43. The second half hour we've got,
  44. we've got 5 minutes of picked fingerstyle practice.
  45. So, either making up
    your own pattern and practicing that.
  46. Or, working on that set pattern that I showed you
  47. and/or trying to incorporate it into some tunes,
  48. working on kind of making it a strumming pattern,
  49. but being able to pick out notes individually.
  50. We've got 5 minutes of legato practice.
  51. If you're new to legato,
    that'll be doing hammer-ons and flickoffs individually.
  52. If you're cool with that, then,
  53. its incorporating it into the Minor Pentatonic
    and the Major Scale,
  54. using legato technique,
    that is the hammer-ons and the flickoffs,
  55. to play the scales up and down,
  56. if you're confident with that,
  57. you might want to start using some melodic patterns
  58. and making sure you incorporate
    the legato techniques into that.
  59. Remember after the Foundation Stage
  60. you probably want to start doing
    the exercise called the Finger Gym
  61. which is a real hardcore workout
  62. using hammer-ons and flickoffs.
  63. We've then got your Rhythm Guitar,
  64. so you're working on your chips,
  65. spreads, splangs
    and your muted strumming.
  66. Really, really good fun.
  67. A very important part of your
    Rhythm Guitar development
  68. is incorporating that stuff into tunes.
  69. So when it comes to practicing songs later,
  70. don't forget to start using those things
    in the real world.
  71. We've also got now 5 minutes
    on the Major Pentatonic.
  72. Now, we're gonna be covering that more
    in future lessons.
  73. But for now,
    just have a bit of a muck around,
  74. see if you can make sense of it,
  75. get used to what it sounds like,
  76. and do a little bit of improvising
    using that scale,
  77. because that's probably the best way
    to get it into your system.
  78. The last thing we've got is
    10 minutes of repertoire.
  79. So learning some new songs
  80. that are incorporating the techniques
    that we've been doing.
  81. Maybe some stuff that uses the pick fingerstyle,
  82. or that uses chips or splangs or spreads
    or whatever you like.
  83. But really making sure
    that you learn new songs for every stage.
  84. And that's it.
    That's your practice routine for Foundation Five.
  85. There's only one lesson left which is Consolidation,
  86. but make sure you spend a bit of time
    getting all of these new things under your fingers
  87. before you work on your Consolidation.
  88. Take care. See you for another lesson very soon.
  89. Bye Bye.
