Band Song List:

“Enemy” Imagine Dragons
“Roar” Katy Perry
“Follow You” Imagine Dragons
“Party In the USA” Miley Cyrus
“Believer” Imagine Dragons

We are playing Believer up a whole step to C minor.

Please use the track below when practicing that song:

Listen to all of the band songs repeatedly to absorb the chord changes and form.  It’s much easier to learn to play a song after you already KNOW it.

Amara

Enemy:

*Keep practicing by playing along with the track.

*Pay attention to keeping perfect time.  Not too fast and not too slow.

Roar:

Step up on your solos then step back.

Study the new choreography for the Choruses.

You will play the bass for Follow You.  Even though you don’t have a bass at home to practice with, please watch the video several times between band practice to memorize the pattern.

Party In The USA

Believer:

The timing of this vocal is very tricky.  Please listen to it and sing along while reading the lyrics.  Pro tip: sing along with the speed slowed down to 75% or 50%  You can do this on Youtube from a google chrome browser.  If you need help with that let me know.

Skyla

Roar:

Step up on your solos then step back.

Study the new choreography for the Choruses.

Enemy:

You doing so great on enemy that Taylor will give you a harder part at your lesson this week.  🙂

Follow You:

You will be playing 2 strings instead of one on this song.  It is a big step up but you are ready!

Believer:

Tyler

Enemy:

*Watch you pitch on this song.  Be careful to not sing too high.

Enemy – Edit

Roar:

Your keytar part is super important.  Here is the timing:

Bb – 6 beats

C – 2 beats

G – 8 beats

Practice with the track to “feel” the chord changes so you don’t have to count.

Here is your keyboard part for Follow You.  Try to use the fingering you see in the video.

Follow You

Watch your timing on this song.  You tend to get way ahead of the band.  Slow down.

Follow You

Party In The USA

Believer:

Vance

Enemy:

You will play the keytar on setting #227.

You go from G to F# for the whole song.

The hard part is not speeding up.

Practice with the recording the “feel” the chord changes so you don’t rush.

Roar:

You have 2 options for the drum part.  Let’s start with the simple “Kick Snare” pattern so we can have a super strong beat for the band.

Here is your keyboard part for Follow You.  Try to use the fingering you see in the video.
