The 9/8 just indicates there's 9 beats per measure, and an eight note is equivalent to one beat.

For counting purposes you could say: One 23456789, One 23456789 .etc...

For difficult passages you can focus on perfection at a slow deliberate pace, and increase speed over time.

You can practice with a metronome much slow than 60 bpm, then work up.

Hello classmates. Here are my study assignments for Lesson 5. The 2nd Roch exercises gave me a real challenge, especially the last portion going into the "a,m" pattern. I had to come back after pulling out my hair (from my face!) :lol:
I keep playing Leccion 1, post recording...I really like it, and my kids aren't telling me to stop :? , I caught them humming along. Rewarding.
Thanks all.

That means at the beginning (C) there was 4 beat per mesure and one beat is a quater note then we change (9/8) 9 beat per mesure and one beat is a eight note. I'm not ususally use metronome, i count by foot tapping, at first (C) I played 1 quater note per tap then (9/8) I played 1 eight note per tap. Is it right? It feel like mellody is 2 times slower.

The C references common-time which is 4/4, four quarter-note beats per measure.

The exercise #2 started in 4/4 for 3 measures/bars, then switched to the 9/8 from m4 - m9.

If your tapping with feet or clapping with hands (m1-m3)
1, 2, 3, 4 (4 qtr note beats) ; 1,2, 3, 4 etc

If your tapping with or clapping with hands (m4-m9)
1 ta ta, 2 ta ta, 3 ta ta (9 total eight note beats) ; 1 ta ta, 2 ta ta, 3 ta ta, etc

I am trying to catch up. These aren't perfect. I had a lot of trouble with the simple alternation exercises.

And this one is the worst. The second time is better.

Juan, I really like the Leccion too. That is the first piece where I really felt like I was playing guitar. Also, Juan, you might try hitting a bit nearer to the frets with your left hand. This seems to help control buzzing(if you are having some).
