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.

Surfin With Satriani
Link to Zsolt's original lesson: here

Guitar: PRS Custom 24
Amp: Line6 HD500 -- Engl Fireball 100 model.
Sony Vegas, Sonar, etc.

After seeing Satriani a couple of weeks ago, I just had to tackle this great lesson from Zsolt. Of course I'm a big fan, but this lesson was also perfect for me since I really need to work on my right hand technique. I should do about a hundred more of these cause these kinds of riffing lessons seem to help big time with precision and even speed at my level. Anyway, I hope you all enjoy this take. Thanks Zsolt for the great lesson!

Perfect take for me! Just a little note: the Dsus4 chord at the end sounds a little strange with the G on the 1st string. It seems that this note is slightly under the pitch but maybe it's just my impression.

Hey James!

How is it going, man?

Now that was a really great take!

Your sound is perfect, your timing needs just a tiny more tightness, but every note that you play is precisely executed. I can tell by your playing that you love Satch's music! smile.gif

And thank you for your kind words biggrin.gif

Cheers man!

That is awesome, almost perfect take. Very nicely played man! As Zsolt said, it lackes some tightness, but it's not that big of a deal. 10 from me smile.gif
