Boulevard of Broken Dreams (Green Day) – Arsh on Drums
Seven Nation Army (The White Stripes) – Luke on Drums

Fun rehearsal guys. Let’s try to come in next week more prepared so we can spend less time reviewing parts and more time playing together though! The best thing for us all to do right now is to be practicing our parts along to the recordings. If you just practice your parts on their own, they can feel like these abstract pieces that don’t really bear a ton of meaning. You need to play with the recording, pushing through mistakes, to make connections between what you are playing, and what you hear. That’s the only way to really get yourself in it and grow your musical brain.

Arsh

Check out the Boulevard guitar solo in particular. You just need to line up the components a little better, I think you’ve got the individual parts down.

Arlo

Joshua

Didn’t have time to comment in class, but for the Boulevard verses, make sure you are getting those longer strums in, not the short ones. And get that guitar solo up to speed! I know you’ll do great with it.

Luke
