In Example TR-105-C, 2nd measure I got the first note as a 1/2 note, but the answer sheet says a 1/4 note followed by a 1/4 note rest.

I got all the notes correct, it's just the duration of that note I'm confused over as I could still hear the note for half the measure, if it was a rest I would have thought it would be muted for the 2nd beat??

You are correct.

Is it just about getting the notes right or timing as well?

I did both as I feel it's important to understand that the notes are only half the equation, without the correct timing you will not be able to play your transcription and have it sound like the original.

+1 for notes AND timing...

Hi everyone
Think I made a mistake not to use the open string notes. My transscripts sounds correctly but the answers from Justin are different

@Anand - Try one note at a time.  Play the a note and then try to find it on the guitar.  There are five notes in the pentatonic scale.  Keep trying and you'll get it.  It will feel good when you do.


@Chnuesi - TR-105 exercise is pentatonic position one only.  There are no open strings.  It's very possible to find other notes that sound correct, but you should be looking for the ones in the pentatonic position one.

ArgHHGHGH!!!

I have only checked my answers to 105-A and in terms of transcribing where the fingers have been placed I am waaayyy off the mark. BUT I am playing the right notes (i.e. when Justin plays a D so am I) I am within the Amin pentatonic scale. Just I choose wrong D!

Have I transcribed it correctly and incorrectly??

Any advice!!!!??

I probably should mention that I am using an acoustic guitar, should that make a big difference?

@ipoo2,  I think the lesson said that the answers would be in the the pentatonic FIRST position.  There are two D's in the first position, but they are an octive apart. 

An acoustic guitar should not make a difference.

Thanks sophiehiker, yep, was using the first position, but played the wrong D i.e. an octave lower. Just wondered if this was good/bad/ugly? As I got it right, just an octave out!?

It's an area to work on. If you got the wrong octave, then it wasn't 100% right, was it? :)

Don't get hung up about it, but listen to the notes again and try to hear where you went wrong. Being aware of things that might trip you up will help to avoid making the same mistake in future.

Yes, what Andy said.  It's not good and it's not bad, but a little ugly.   ;)

I think you had to really reach to get that lower octive D.  That is, it wasn't near the other notes in that exercise.  Most of the time (not all the time), the next note should be within easy reach of the last note.
