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: Alternate Picking - Thirds by Muris Varajic


I started this lesson 2016 in "Gab mentor Thread"
I had a lot of trouble with the timing.

2019 - I’m working my thumb with this one.
It’s not a big movement yet, but I’m thinking about it more and more.

Here old take 2016/08

Very well done!! Your hand synch is very tight. There is ZERO extra string noise. Your precision is some of the best I"ve seen from you. Clearly you have been putting time in to your practice. It's great to see you getting better and better with each and every video!!
The only complaint I have is a very very small one. You are moving your picking hand from low to high string as you go. This is a personal pet peeve of mine and not something most instructors care about. But, this is me smile.gif I try to suggest a "center strategy" where the hand stays in the middle of the bridge and rotates at the wrist to hit all strings from high to low. That way, one can mute or un mute any string in under a beat when needed. It allows amazing dynamics control.

Also, you are sitting "Side saddle" with the guitar on your right leg. This is also just a concern for me as an instructor. I urge people to try classical position (guitar on the left leg) as it is more similar to the angle of the hand when standing. Thus things learned sitting, translate to playing when standing. These are fairly minor and didn't prevent me from enjoying your take. Solid 9 from me!!
