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: Picking Hand Basics by Ben Higgins

First Lesson I've done by my buddy Ben! As always, be brutally honest ; ). I know I had some problems on the triplets section but, other than that, I'm pretty comfortable with it. Got up at 3:30 to work on this so my little guy won't be making a guest appearance on this one!

Hi mate! You did a good take. The only thing to work is the timing of the 16th notes, it sounds good but it's not perfect in some moments... for example at 00:50 and in some parts after 1:00. Concentrate on that and you'll have a perfect take! smile.gif

Good take mate! I have to agree with Gabe on the small slip at about 0:50 ! I''m sure you were just being out of focus a bit so, that's a 9 from me biggrin.gif keep rocking hombre!
