I am confused already. It may have been that my lesson was at 8:30 this morning. I could have been distracted knowing that I had a dentist appointment later today. Maybe I just do not know what I am doing.
As all students should do, I e-mailed my teacher a few times today to clarify some points about my homework. I was having trouble understanding the practicing patterns. There are four, and like the exercises that I give my students, there are really two just, but reversing them creates four exercises.
In a nutshell, my homework is to play a four note sequence, up from the lowest diatonic note on my instrument, in a particular key. One of the patterns is to play from the first note to the fourth; then the second note to the fifth, the third note to the sixth, and so on until my head explodes.
Then I do this in reverse as well as with the other keys, whichever keys are on the list that I left at work. As well as one other pattern that will also be reversed. The patterns are also on the same sheet that I left at work.
Oh, yeah, and with guitar, one must also play in the seven positions.
