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.

Original lesson: Picking Arpeggios by Ben Higgins

Hi GMC!
I used this lesson as one of my warming up exercise. These chords are so difficult! But now my fingers became stronger smile.gif

Artyom.

Hi Artyom, good to see you in REC again smile.gif

Congratulations on taming the wild beast of those chords ! The only criticisms I can give are that in 2 places you use several upstrokes in a row instead of pure alternate picking. There's nothing really wrong with that if it works but you might get some more physical benefit out of it if you keep it alternate just to keep the wrist moving more smile.gif

The guitar sounded a little out of tune, but that won't affect the score of 10, which you deserve ! Your timing and chord shifting were just great wink.gif

Quite good ! The timing is almost perfect, but still needs some small correction . Also suggest to check your guitar before each recording, detuned guitar knows to spoil overall impression !

Hey Artyom! Aside from what Ben and Sinisa noted - I would only stress the tuning idea smile.gif it's a shame to lose points on tuning man!

Hi mate! You did a good job on this one! It sounds very tight and each note sounds at the same volume, you are very precise. I also agree about the alternate picking issue that Ben said as well as the tuning problem. It's a 9 for me! Good job.
