Speed or qaulity
« 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.

Well, I’ve learnt something here. I was putting “speed” ahead of “precision” and getting very obsessive about always having to be faster each time. Back to the drawing board.

By the way, is it just me who has phases of not being able to play a chord at all? First it was D, then A, and now it seems to be A Minor. Weird.

One of the most important things you have to get ingrained into your mind is not to practice mistakes, always remember practice makes perfect (including mistakes) - hope this helps you progress the right way!

One thing beginners seem to forget is you need to know the chords before you can get
quick at chsnging to the. When you have these moments where chord seem tough go
back to the pick strum exercise.

It not just you, everyone has moments when things just don't register or you feel like
you have to start over. I've been playing since '75 and it still happens to me with songs
I can play in my sleep.

Yeah I get those nightmares as well Stitch !

@Badger, yes the 1MCs are about speed but you'll just re-enforce sloppy sounding chords, if they're fast but loose  ;) As Justin says practice make permanent. So continually hitting "bad" chords, will make this your norm and you don't want that.
Reign the speed back and focus on good cleanish changes. They don't have to be 100% perfect but close. Work on precision with strum/pick/strum and apply to the 1MCs and you'll get there.

Go for both speed and quality. Quality is always good, speed can kill sometimes, so be careful. :)
