    "I practice scales, then I practice scales and when I'm done I practice scales some more" It worked for Andres Segovia.

    Now remember that a scale is but a very large arpeggio which would mean...

    That reminds me of the Dilbert where his Boss shuts down new marketing ideas because "if it was any good, other people would have come up with it" and then once other people do it "it's not...

    I think what the OP is calling "medieval" is actually, renaissance and barroque music. Lots of V I and ii V I stuff. If that's in fact what he meant it is a BIG subject. An 18th century counterpoint...

    I recognize the passage (this should be measure 11 if I'm correct) but in all the arrangements for guitar I've seen there's no bass note. Just the D# on beat 1. Mind you, in the original piece it is...

    I would think of the entire progression as V - i in D.

    Your first chord is just an A triad (with an 11h in there for color) the next chord is in fact an Aaug (both those chords could be played as...

    It's precisely because this is not a consistent thing but rather a jump from what I assume was a much more conservative schedule that there's risk of injury. On the other hand I doubt 8 days can do...

    A word of caution:

    Hey there Bardhan:

    I went through a period of time where I did nothing but music. I did something similar to what you are doing. I was going to school for music fulltime and I was practicing...

    See your problem is that you are trying to bridge your knowledge of scale patterns with sight reading. I have found that for most people this just leads to confusion and frustration. Think like if...

    What is it that you are concerned about? If your fingers automatically "know" where to go when you see a note then you are doing it right. Who cares HOW they know? If you own the Leavit books then...

    Intervallic thinking is great and it will speed things up. The problem is when you are sight reading something you just don't have the time to do all that analyzing (think of it as the crutch in a...

    I like the William Leavit approach of treating each position as a different instrument. You are basically re-learning to read the same notes when you move up on the neck. While this may sound...

    I hate to sound cliché but (here I go what the heck) composing is analog to painting. I think of the different modal sounds as different colors or flavors (dorian is a bit like cilantro :p ) .
