Group 3

Announcing the first Two Week Intensive with Peter Graneis!

Say goodbye to struggling with speed and effort, and hello to playing scales with ease using the technique of using three fingers instead of two. Discover the power of p•m•i and learn how to take your playing to new heights.

Throughout the course, we'll explore the nuances of p•m•i versus a•m•i, and how to achieve the perfect balance between speed and power. It's important to note that this technique is not just about speed, but also about control, and we'll guide you through the process from basic movements to advanced exercises.

While scales played with p•m•i may make it impossible to play any simultaneous accompaniment, you'll be amazed at the new world of possibilities that will open up for you. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to take your guitar playing to the next level!

    Hello Peter,  sorry for not writing before. I have been rehearsing the exercises as part of my routine. Not so much the C major scale but I send it to you anyway just before the live session. Thank you so much and see you in a bit!

    • Emma thank you Emma.


      it sounds very regular already, try to increase the dynamic difference and try to add a stronger accent on the loud notes. Like mentioned in the q&a, make sure to work with the metronome, even though it’s already quite steady. You’re already doing the ‘correct’ version of exercise 6 as I pointed out, when descending you’re playing pmi-pi-…, which would be more true to my logic. For me personally it’s easier to play pmi-pm-…, but in cases like this it’s great to find what’s comfortable. Happy practicing!
