6 note arpeggio following the Principles BPA

Postby Ianps » Sat Jun 27, 2009 10:53 am

Any feedback on a Principled approach to improving my form with these exercises is welcomed.

On the plus side, since I started using the Principles, the little finger of the RH has gone from looking like something that belonged on the end of Captain Hook's arm sticking up in the air to something thats much better but still not pretty. I m doing regular slow practice - 4 beats per note at 60 bpm - but
I'm not feeling I'm developing in my right hand at the moment. At least I now have a video to make comparisons of progress.

Quarter notes at 60 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTts4ELdlaY

Eighth notes at 60 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3Ah8Xe-zu8

Sixteenth notes 60 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GR9Y8uCrBQ4

Thanks
Ian

Ian, you have done very well in many ways, and up to a point. I believe an adjustment is needed in the position. The hand is to flat, and the fingers cannot bring enough force. Not enough force generated at the MC joint. Could result in weak strokes and tension at higher speeds. We see tension as the speed increases. '

Still, worlds beyond what many people are stuck with!
Best,
Jamie

Many Thanks Jamie,

Your commments on this and my previous posting ar immensly encouraging to me. I am sure that I have made progress this year by a more careful and focussed study of your teachings and the Principles. I do have very limited time for practice and its great to have some kind of affirmation that however inefficient my study is, I am moving in the right direction.

So I will now review all the right hand study material with a focus on hand position.

Waves bye bye while clutching bunch of bananas ;) :D

best regards
Ian
