For Next Week:
Please practice the closed chord shapes we used in class (one major, one minor, and one dominant 7th) with Kabak da boynuma.
listen to the recording of Kabak da boynuma and try to hear the rhythm (with chords) that James plays. The work on a rhythm to play behind the melody; either the one he plays, or your own. Also continue to practice the melody focusing on the 16th note run down in measure 4. Or, pick out a new melody. consider using the chord shapes as a starting point.
Adoration - Listen to the recording to help you learn the rhythm of this melody. It is a wee bit tricky with the syncopations and ties, etc. so becoming familiar with the melody will help a lot to learn the rhythm of the notes.
I am attaching the harmony for the piece. It is the same (rhythmacally) but plays higher up the neck.
Then, practice the rhythm that I passed out in class (page 47, book 2, lines number 4 & 7) Like the Bossa Nova, this will take a bit of practice, but I think it is a bit easier.
