You don't have to incorporate the thumb in any exercise or piece until lesson 5 (I promise). Also, I would recommend focusing more on the musical pieces than the exercises.. The exercises are just supposed to get you reading and your fingers working.
That sounds odd. The exercise is put in there to train us to use the thumb. I will get it, I'm just had an off day
I have mine set to the recommended tempo, 104bpm, and I don't find it a problem. Can't believe I'm saying that because I've always found it off putting, till now.P.S. To all struggling. A slow metronome can REALLY help, especially with the exercises since they lack musicality. If you haven't tried using a metro, I recommend using it for a while to learn how to play evenly. The click can be very frustrating at first, but ultimately very helpful once you learn how to lean on it.
