Matthieu Brandt's Guitar Lab course entitled "Triads & Hendrixian Double Stops" has generated a lot of interest in this forum ever since its release in 2011. So many of us "forumites" have said this course is on our personal "to do" list that a few of us have decided to use it for a totally new study approach. We are forming a "Study Group" to dissect and analyze this course. A few of us recently took the Berklee Music College on-line free course and saw study groups used in their forums. Ours may be a bit different, but if we can do anything to help each other learn useful musical ideas, why not give it a shot.
Torr71 has agreed to be our "Moderator" for the group study. On Sunday, he will assign lessons from the course to those of us who want to participate. We will each look at all the lessons assigned to the group for a given week, but we will each be assigned a specific lesson for which we will prepare a written submission. We will post our written submissions on Friday or Saturday. On Sunday, the process starts over with the next group of lessons and during the second week we can look back and have discussions on those submitted during the first week. This process repeats until we finish the course.
You do not have to be a member of the "Study Group" to participate in the discussions, but we would like for all those who are willing to regularly accept an assignment each week and prepare a written submission on it to please sign up here so Torr can get started giving us our first lessons. The submissions we prepare will be much like those in the course blogs. Feel free to use any chord diagrams or Neck Diagrams that you have crafted on your own. You can also use a sample video if one is available on You-Tube. We are all students and we can all learn from each other. You know it is often the person teaching who benefits most from the materials in a class. Let's jump into this experiment in teaching one another. It may be one way to start something new here on the forum that will be beneficial for all of us.
It is a work in progress so we may change a few things here and there as we go along, but it will be a fun trip with rest stops made as needed. The group will get assignments here and post their submissions right here in this thread.
Please "officially" sign up for this Study Group with a post in this thread between now and Sunday (6-16-2013).
Let's have some fun!
