Rodrigo FabiÃ¡n ValdÃ©z posted a topic in TVS Student Training JournalHi guys! I'm Rodrigo again. I hadn't been training due flu I had and now I started again. As you may guess, I'm a begginer and I have tons of ideas and questions. This one is really cool, and you will see why. I found out that the FBR is awesome but it has tons of information and for the part-time musician, it is critical to know what to practice in order to make more productive sessions. I've been playing gutiar for 15 years now, and also I play a lot of styles (classical, rock, acoustic, percusive, etc) and the key to progress and still have fun is to have goals. I mean, personal, realistic and short-terms goals that you can acomplish in a few weeks or months and then move on to another thing. Set a new goal, and keep moving. Now that I'm into singing, I can have practice sessions for 45 min 5 to 7 times a week. Some of them even until 1 hour. So I was doing this things to get better in things that I need to get better now. I do this: ---Resonant tracking 1 T&T Slow then Fast 2 T&R the same way and 3 R&R only fast ---Support training: Robert's excercises and a few more that I've been doing since I took classical lessons, more focused to feeling the awearness of the support process ( really easy ones, but gives awesome results) ---Onsets Well there is a lot here in the book. I have to get more compression, and I tend to sing with a lot of dark overtones amplified. And an excess of these does not sound well for me. What do I do? The following: Q&R since F3 to F3 (Sometimes G4 or A4, if I can do them without push, pain or constrictions) and I repeat 2 times that onset in every note, except for Db4 to E4, when I repeat 4 times the onset. I do this because my bridge is around those notes. And Robert says we have to practice those notes harder because those are the difficult ones (and I is so true!). Then I follow with a few attemps of A&R. If it is too hard for me, I don't do it. I listen to my body. After that, I do edging onsets in the same range, maybe 2 times per note. Sometimes 3. ---Sirens Well, not too much to say here. I do melodic 5th as Robert show us. Two times, at least, focusing on Q&R onset and some of T&R. I don't go too high, at least not for now. I hope my way to train this can inspire you to think and organize your practice schedule if you're not doing it now. For the most advanced TVS people... how do you practice the FBR? Do you think I'm doing it right? Rock-on!
