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.

When i first joined GMC a couple of weeks back i rushed immediately over to the blues lessons as its a genre i cannot get enough of. I spotted Ivan's blues soloing lesson for beginners and I loved it. It isn't easy though. As he says throughout - feel is so important.

There are a couple of mistakes - im having a few difficulties getting the chord shapes in time but i manage to correct the mistake. I think this will be ironed out as soon as i get adjusted to fingering it correctly and in time.

Without further ado:

Lesson: Ivan Milenkovic - Blues Soloing for Beginners

Fender strat Deluxe
Boss - BO 100 Blues Overdrive
Marshall MG DFX250

Thanks for your time
