In Windows Explorer make sure Tools->Folder Options->File Types is mapped to PowerTab for the .ptb extension.

RE: Anton Jimenez Daily Exercise #12 (in reply to Guest

aha , success, what I ended up doing was saving the file on desktop and then opening it later with power tab and that seemed to work fine. I do have one question thought the descending arpeggio patterns, how are they played? Is it p, i, m, a or as an exercise as im im etc. ? I think it is p ima but not sure.

Andy,

I managed to get them ok on my home computer with the tab software minimalised in the background.
Thanks for everything, I'll have a run through them and try not to wreck my fingers.

Cheers
Jim.

RE: Anton Jimenez Daily Exercise #2 (in reply to Guest

I realise that i´ve been doing these kind of exercices all my life On electric guitar
Why is it that i haven´t done any of this on my flamenco guitar? Too darn lazy i guess When i think about it..it´s like im waiting for the perfect exercicse that will solve all my problems technicaly and musicaly we all know that there´s no magical exercicse like that so keep in mind......the only good exercicse is the one that you/we actually do.

RE: Anton Jimenez Daily Exercise #12 (in reply to Guest

I've come up with a nice way to warm up my RH. I do picado up and down the strings, covering all the rhythmic levels. So I do a measure or two of eighth notes on 1, then 2 3 4 5 6 5 4 3 2, then do triplets, then sixteenths, then quintuplets (5 per), then sextuplets, then septuplets (7 per), then 32nd notes. You could do this around 80 or 100. The thing to do is always to think this thought "I am paying attention to EXACTLY the spot where my RH tenses up." You will find like magic that your RH will NOT tense up, merely because you are thinking this magical phrase. It's kind of tricky to play the 5s and 7s if you aren't used to it, but you find that you also have to think these numbers, 12345 or takatakata. You find that guitar is mostly mental after all!


Try to play the picado light since this is a warm up. Picture your hand floating above the strings like a flying saucer with antigravity engines.

Let me know how everyone likes it!

RE: Anton Jimenez Daily Exercise #12 (in reply to Guest

ok, now I'm lost, the last post has got me Miguel. I think I can understand what you are saying, but the 1/16 notes etc has got me. What I think that means is tht you keep going faster. In other words, yuou start by playing 1 note per beat , a sixteenth is two per beat, a 32 is four, etc. That you end up with warp speed for a 7 note sequence of 28 seperate picado strikes? Is that correct? excuse me but I have a limited knowledge of 1/16 etcs and it is easier for my poor brain to understand hit the string 4 times. !

RE: Anton Jimenez Daily Exercise #12 (in reply to rickm

Your familiar with 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 ?
One beat 1 theres 4 sixteenth notes. and on beats 2,3,4. Ok
When Miguel says he´s doing 7notes it´s 7 sixteenth notes over each beat.

I******I****** I=is also a played note
32nd notes are 4 notes on beat 1 and 4 on beat &
(eight notes altogheter over the first beat) .Its hard for me to explain this in english.
Hope i don´t confuse you

RE: Anton Jimenez Daily Exercise #12 (in reply to Guest

Henrik, you just confused me and I'm the one who wrote the post! :) Gtr66, here's how you figure it out. Set your metronome to 80 bpm. Now, do this:

1. Play 2 notes per beat, these are called eight notes Ta ka, Ta ka, Ta ka
2. Play 3, these are triplets. Ta ka ta Ta ka ta Ta ka ta
3. 4, sixteenth notes Ta ka ta ka Ta ka ta ka Ta ka Ta ka
4. 5 these are called quintuplets Ta ka ta ka ka Ta ka ta ka ka Ta ka ka ta ka
5. 6, called sextuplets
6. 7, called septuplets
7. 8, called 32nd notes

5 notes per beat, and 7 are very hard to feel because they are uncommon, but it's good to practice them. 6 is fairly common and basically feels like stuffing two triplets into a beat, 8 is uncommon, but feels like stuffing two sixteenth notes into a beat.

If 80 is too fast for bigger numbers, slow down, use 60, 40, 30, whatever. If you train your mind to be able to THINK these numbers, eventually your fingers will follow and be able to play them. Speed is mental, so you are really training your mind more than the fingers.

Henrik, only if it's 4 notes per beat is that called sixteenth notes. Otherwise they have special names.
