20:10 Meeting with Guitars I
Alexander Technique Directions were given by George on bringing attention to the body from outside, imagining movements, sitting, and finally the shape of the right hand.
Warm-up calisthenics were led by Marian. Begin with an anchoring exercise with 5 note sequences introduced some months earlier by Hernan. After refreshing the patterns, we play in quarter notes, then picking in eighth notes and finally all in eighth notes.
Circulating in quarter notes, eighth notes, eighth note triplets and 16th notes; rotating the person who begins.
