Intention (SMART Goal)
By March 2nd I want to learn how to play the solo for Paranoid by Black Sabbath. I will do this by listening to the song, using ultimate guitar tabs, and also video tutorials on how to play it. I will use this tutorial by GuitarLesson365Song. For session 4, group 2
PRE-PRODUCTION – INQUIRY
Leader(s) in the Field / Exemplary Work(s)
Kim Thayil the lead guitarist for Soundgarden is one of my personal favorite lead guitarists, he does wild solos in many of their songs, using a lot of wah wah pedals. Also creating epic rifts for many of their songs. But also capable of doing spacey, mellow chord progressions.
- 0:13 playing the solo actual speed
- 0:56 how to play the start of the game
- 3:43 start of the more complicated part
- 5:03 fast thing
- 6:55 next part that is pretty bluesy
- 8:37 end of the solo
SMART Goal Schedule
I will use a few days during school to exclusively practice the Paranoid solo, those days will be Friday 25th, and Monday 1st as well as 20 minutes each day after school

POST-PRODUCTION – REFLECTION
21st Century Skills
Ways of Thinking (Creativity, Innovation, Critical Thinking, Problem Solving)
First, I listened to the solo multiple times to get an idea of how it sounded, then I listened to small parts of the tutorial individually, learning them and playing them slowly. Then I tried to tie everything together still playing it slowly, then I started to speed up
Ways of Working (Communication & Collaboration)
I didn’t really collaborate with anyone, since this was a solo project, but I did ask people questions on how to do things, and also sometimes got people to listen to things I was working on for input.
Tools for Working (Info & Media Literacy)
I listened to Paranoid by Black Sabbath, and also used the tutorial linked above.
Ways of Living in the World (Life & Career)
I got better at playing the guitar (which might be a career opportunity), I also got better at labelling/ stating what I did and worked on and making goals for myself to complete by a certain time
Self-Evaluation of Final Version
I like how the final version turned out it wasn’t perfect and even since then I can play the solo better than when I recorded the final version, but I am happy with how It turned out
What I Learned and Problems I Solved
I learned how to accurately both speed and get the notes right on how to play the solo for Paranoid by Black Sabbath. Some problems I had was I was finding it difficult to play a especially fast blues lick but I eventually got it after playing it slowly and accurately till I played it right.
Grammar and Spelling
I transferred this document to google drive and use grammar and spell check there.
