I. Warmup

- 5 mins, skipped M&A scales because of left hand fatigue. Doing finger cross m&a instead.

II. Music Theory (44 mins)

Wound up Learning Major / Minor Pentatonic Theory

Major Pentatonic = 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 6th scale degree of Major Scale.

C Major Pentatonic is:
C, D, E, G, A

Minor Pentatonic = 1st, flat 3rd, 4th, 5th, and flat 7th scale degree of Major Scale.

To play the diagonal scale you can take many different paths, to make life easier you do one shift per string / every other string.

III. Technique (50 mins)

Skipped vibrato, barely did rasgueado.

The staccato drill for tremolo seems to help me get speed, but perhaps creates a staccato effect. I also noticed I have a problem with my nail catching, I should focus next time on simple tirando.

IV. New Repertoire (30 mins)
- No notes
