Fun Musician Drills, Cool Guitars and Some Humor

Cool Improvisation Trick

This is something I strongly encourage you to try out.

Solo over one of your favorite songs or over a backing track, with an in position (7-note or pentatonic) scale, consistently leaving one string out.

For example: solo with the root position A minor pentatonic box, but don’t play any notes on the B string (or A string, or D string,… you get the idea).

Having that “gap” in the scale fingerings, leads to new phrases and melodies you otherwise would never have been able to come up with.
Key in this: is self-discipline. Refrain from the temptation to quickly add a note on that string.

Great Ear Training lesson

This following is a drill I highly recommend.

Singing series of repetitive intervals: all b3’s, all whole steps, all major 3’s, all 4ths, all major 6ths, etc…

This is a challenge, but it’s amazing what this does to your ear development.

When you sing all whole steps, you are singing a whole tone scale
When you sing all minor 3rds, you are singing the notes of a dim7 chord
When you sing all major 3rds, you are singing the notes of an augmented triad
When you sing all perfect 4ths, you are singing the circle of 4ths
When you sing all perfect 5ths, you are singing the circle of 5ths

Conclusion

Hit me up anytime at [email protected] if you have any questions, or if you would like to book a lesson.

These free lessons are cool, but you will never experience the progress and results that my students experience in lessons, learning from blogs and videos.

That is why people take lessons: way better results and progress, much more complete information, exposed to way more creative ideas, than you can get from a blog.
There is only so much that self-study can accomplish.

Keep me informed on your progress. You can hit me up in the comments section below.
If you like this blog: give it a rating and feel free to give me any feedback.
I believe everything can always improve. I’d gladly implement your suggestions and ideas.

Be on the look out for more blogs about guitar, music, songwriting and music education.
You’re on your way to becoming a great guitar player.
Have fun! 🙂
