Here is where the magic happens: the REC board turns bedroom guitarists into real pros. Remember - it doesn't matter if you fail or pass, as long as you keep posting REC takes you will progress.

The entries will be graded by a number of instructors. After grading, members will be accredited with the appropriate points if they pass, and adjustments will be made to their REC level.
Passing grade is 7.5 or higher.

Hi there Michael!

The take became tighter and cleaner but you still have to work on the triplets, as there are slips in execution here and there. All in all, it's getting better! So keep at it and it'll come out right!

Hi Michael, this is loads better ! smile.gif

I like the fact you have a very relaxed picking hand. This is good, it's what we want wink.gif

I recommend building up to the higher speeds by incorporating bursts now and again. Practice playing these bursts as relaxed as you can.. like you do in this lesson. I've discovered the only way to learn how to do something is to actually (in increments) do that thing as close to the level that you intend it be as you can. Then from there you can build on it until you can sustain that speed for longer. cool.gif

Very very good, nice improvement! smile.gif The faster tempo picking certainly looks a lot better, my compliments smile.gif So, it's now time to polish it up, and keep your hand more loose. In time this will happen, but be sure to make your hand loose while practicing too - that's very important. Keep rockin! smile.gif
