28 Things G Major - Practice Session

Post by konstantine » Fri Feb 01, 2019 9:33 pm

Hello,

I decided to make and post one video every day through the month with some of the things that I have stumbled upon while studying scales, intervals, harmony and repertoire. Everything will be in relation to G Major, from scales and triads to voice leading and modern clusters, with various self-made as well as derived from the repertoire examples and explanations.



It is a journal to practising, improvisation and composition and hopefully will help other people that have a similar mindset. It is also going to be a lot of very intensive work by my side and those who decide to join me.

I´m looking forward to reading your thoughts and comments!

keep exploring,
Konstantine


PS if there is interest I´ll keep posting the videos on this thread every day and If you want more detailed and intensive info, scores (where applicable), updates etc. you'll find them on my website:

I enjoyed it but probably not for the reason for which you posted the video. I really liked listening to your improvisations. I'd happily listen to 28 days of your playing!!

Thank you, Kent, Marshall and Paul, your comments and support are really appreciated!

Paul, some of the following videos and topics will be dryer in content but I try to include as many examples as possible.


Anyway, the video for Day 2 is up, the topic is Intervals and Double Stops:




If interested, you can find a free score for the Double Stop Etude here:

The new video is up and true to the form of all 28-things, the video on Triads in about learning and practising them in a diagonal array.



free score available:

Do you like the change of angles, would like more of that or you prefer the camera to stay in the same position like on the previous episodes?

One of the most useful, interesting posts I have read on the forum. Links very well and very helpfully with my last post on practising essential scales and arpeggios. Thank you very much Konstantine.

P.S. Konstatine's website well-worth consulting https://www.konstantinemargaritis.com/28-things-g-major

I echo's Trentino's comment here. Konstantine thank you for all the work you are putting into producing these videos and the information you have presented on your website. There's a lot to absorb so it's great that you are posting all the videos in the one place on your website.

Trentino, thank you very much, I have to check out your post.

Paul, thanks again. I thought it would make sense to have everything together so that I could provide updates, new scores, more info, etc. Also, it is not humanly possible to internalise all that info in that short amount of time!

The new video is up and is about voice leading on guitar with some Barrios references:


My laptop went to sleep (so did I), so it finally got uploaded today.

PS I have a concert today, let's see how and if I'll manage to make today's video.

The first two videos have completely changed how I practice scales, improvise etc. Much more rewarding and much more interesting. Maybe, after all, I will learn how to play the guitar.
