« on: September 28, 2016, 07:58:28 pm »
Im on stage 2 of the BC and i was wondering justin said the 1 minute changes were to work on speed so i have been doing that even though chords have been coming out sloppy ish.  Should i be doing my 1 mi ute changes slower if it meens ill have better sounding chords.

Practicing sloppy chord changes is not doing you any good.
The one minute changes exercise is to learn to change chords quickly so you
can play songs.

Yes.  Justin say not to count sloppy chords so if you doing 10 sloppy chords for every 10 good chords
you only count the 10 good ones. So it's better doing 15 good ones than 10 bad and 10 good.
Justin also says "Practice make Permanent" so the more you practice sloppy chords the better you learn
to play sloppy chord and the longer it will take to fix the bad habit.

You do need to push yourself so do practice at a higher rate than your are comfortable doing.

As stitch says you have to use common sense when it comes to "what do you count" on 1 min changes. If 9 out of 10 are good that's fine and you're going in the right direction but if 9 out of 10 are bad then you need to slow down. Make sure you're doing the individual strum, pick exercise on the chords as well.
