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 6 or higher.

Original lesson: The 3 Blues Kings by Ivan Milenkovic

Hi It is a 2d Ivan's lesson which I learn. It was very difficult to get precision as regards the speed of some licks. This lesson was very instructrive. I had a practice for 1 month. I isolated the fast parts but today I cannot do better. I gave the best of mu capacity

Very nice! I think your tone is great (though different from Ivan).

Overall you are doing very well, though I can hear the (few) missed notes in the faster runs you are speaking about. However for this kind of performance - which is all about conveying a certain type of emotive phrasing, I am really not that bothered by a few technical misses.

For me to get wow feeling from your playing - I would need a performance where you don't seem to think about avoiding mistakes - but just play from your heart. From this perspective I would say you did best in the beginning of this take - probably before you started worrying/thinking about the faster passages.

My comments are related to tiny nuances though, and you did very well here overall- you get an 8 from me!

For me it's again a great performance ,very close to pro level but your tension is visible and some runs do not sound spontanious/relaxed. The closer to the end, the more you tense on the fast runs and some note are not in sync for both hands, or simply missed. Of course I understand it's a different type of attitude when you press REC button, but it's the easiet way to name the problem.

At some points you loose control over unwnted strings, and they start to cut through the mix. Always keep part of palm on the low strings when they're not being played

Generally through last year your overall musicality and dynamics sensitivity has impressively grew and that's your really strong skill. For the same time amount your straggle with fast runs. They are not perfect yet but I notice constant improvement on this field as well. Your fast runs are more and more precise, and I'm sure you'll get to that break-point someday, if you contonue to do things the way you do. It's really getting better and better. Some of those runs sound really juicy already, like 0:15.

Keep up the good work!
