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.

Hi guys,

this is my take on Jose Mena's lesson Alternate picking: 16th note exercises. The original lesson is here.

Sorry Jose, it took me a "little" more than just one month. laugh.gif But I think I've got it! There are a couple of flaws (I missed a couple of notes and there's a timing issue in one of the runs), but I think I did good on this one.

I used an Ltd Deluxe guitar with thick strings. It's tuned down half a step, so the scale is actually B Major. There wasn't a backing track so I just used the GMC metronome.

My amp is a Cube 60 and my camera is a Canon pocket camera.



Thank you very much for watching and grading!! smile.gif

- Kristian

your alternate picking is very good!

I would only correct the noise between phrases when you let go of the neck,

but strength, accuracy and punch are there

Excellent job on this one, well played. There is some noise at the end of the second phrase, it might have something to do with the external mix catching something. But playing is very good, almost perfect. 9 from me.

Awesome alternate picking, man!

Your high notes are played very well, however, when you get down do the lower strings, some of your notes are uneven, picking wise. What this means is either you don't pick them even. Your tone is also very nice.
