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.

Hey GMC,

Here's my take on Gabriel's Winter Wonderland.
Gear: Ibanez SA 08 LTD2 and Pod Farm for the sound.
Original: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/The-Festive-Challenge/ Difficulty 4

I have a request if I may rolleyes.gif Could you instructors talk a bit about my posture? I've got pains in my right shoulder (picking side) and I believe it's Shoulder tendonitis, but I haven't checked with a doctor yet. It'd be awesome if any of you could spot a bad habbit that makes my shoulder tense?

Your body is all curved, right sholder is too far behind and too high, and left shoulder the opposite of that. You have to sit straight, with equal height between the shoulders, and stay like that. It will take some time to achieve this, but stay focused and you will do it. It's not easy to correct posture it requires a lot of time, possibly several months even a year or two, depending how disciplined you are. The good news is that you will feel better very soon once you start practicing and playing with correct posture on regular basis.

The take was perfect on the other hand, 10 from me.

Great take indeed smile.gif

About the posture, try rising your right leg on a small stool, and adjust the chair to keep your back as straight as possible. Use mirror to observe your posture smile.gif
