This is for anyone out who took Grade 7 or higher on guitar. I have three issues.
1. I'm working through the G7 scales, aiming for MM=146 as per the ABRSM Scales and Arpeggios for Guitar book. That tempo seems pretty achievable for the scales, perhaps a bit slower for the arpeggios. One thing that is bothering me is the double-stop scales. I'm currently practicing those at MM=90, which seems a way off from the above figure. Considering how difficult it to play scales in thirds or Octaves, I wonder if the tempo requirements are much slower than that for normal scales?
2. For something like G major in thirds, do I play with RH fingering IM, or PI/PM alternating? The octaves are fine because they are PI/PM alternating.
3. For scales the requirement is "any regular combination of i.m.a". This could mean IMA, IMAM, AMI etc. etc?
Anyone got any advice or experience to share?
