We have come down to our last 2 training sessions for the June holiday period. Following the 1 and a quarter week break for block test preparation, the blocks itself and the sabbatical week, we would be down to 2 weeks left before the performance itself. These 2 weeks of trainings would be spent adding in the dynamics for both Star Wars and Malaguena during combined sessions and a full-dress rehearsal before the actual performance on the 22nd July.
As you know, the exco would be playing 2 more pieces "La Cucaracha" and "13 days in France". These 2 pieces are still open for any member to join in and play; the notes are simple and the melody is nice. So do volunteer yourself if you think you can manage playing 4-5 songs in the performance. (You may also choose to join in one of the songs instead of 2)
For the last 2 training sessions of the holiday, we would be doing:
- Sectionals for Malaguena (esp guitar 1 and 2 who have yet to finish the song)
- Combined for Star Wars and Mu Chang (emphasis would be on getting the accurate timing)
- Combined for Malaguena (a number of tempo changes in the song that you may take some time to get used to; the fastest part of the song is 160 beats per min, the fastest for Star Wars was 120 beats per min)
- Exco would be combining their 2 pieces too (practice 13 days in France if you cannot learn both by Monday)
Lots of stuff to complete!! jiayou!! Use a METRONOME (click on this link) to check your timing =)
