> Rules

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: Tastes of Harmonic Major by Chris Harrington

Chris lessons are always very tasteful... and i've just made a mess out of this one. A bit more study and maybe i would get it "clean", but i don't have much personnal time left and my subscription is ending, so... i had fun! Keep up the good work, c'ya!

Another bold choice! I commend you for picking the tough ones!!! Your overall sound and tone and feel is quite good IMHO. I think you could play this perfectly with a pinch more work. You are very close! Just needs a bit more polish. You are drifting on tempo here and there and maybe missing a few notes. This is a difficult bit of music. But very much worth learning.

I'm very sorry to hear your account is expiring sad.gif I really hope you can find a way to stay with us as I see enormous talent in your REC videos and it would be a shame to throw it all away just as you are starting to make good progress! Before you go, send a personal message to Kris Dahl to see if something can be worked out smile.gif

I'm giving you a 6 here as you obviously worked on this and I enjoyed listening to it!!

Hi friend! Nice job here.

I think that you are getting really close here. Most of the parts sound tight and clean. There are some sections in which you miss some notes or lose sync between both hands. I think that this can be related to the fact that you are doing too much left hand fingers movement. I recommend you to try to keep those fingers closer to the fretboard when you are not pressing a fret. Try to economise movement, make every move the smaller possible, and your hands will be more connected.

Regarding the mix, I think that your guitar could be a bit louder in the mix so we can listen better all the details of your playing.

This one obviously needs more time of practice, and maybe at a slower tempo, but I'm sure that you'll be mastering it very soon. Keep on the good job! wink.gif

Hey there!

It's "visible" that you are able to get this one done with just right tone control from your hand. Now this kind of playing is highly based on tight timing. You should give it definitely some more time to really dig into it. At this point some notes are visibly hesitated and affecting the timing. But...most important looks like you're really having some good time playing it. That's what we wish all student will always have fisrt - the joy of playing this fantastic instrument. Have a great time and remember to visit us some more even not as a member smile.gif
