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: Alternate Picking - Thirds by Muris Varajic

I practiced this one around 4 hours over two days to get to this point!

Not bad, but could be better ! You have good timing, but there's one other thing that's troubling you, and that's the fluidity of tone. Muris doesn't use palm muting, and you are relying too much on it, so your notes sounds chopped a bit. If we ignore a few mistakes
(at 0:36/ the first ascending minor, and at 0:48/ excessive tone, automatically rhythm fault), this is a good job ! Lesson is quite demanding, so pay attention to these mistakes, and next shot will be excellent !

I liked it! Good take!
Your timing was pretty good
A few times you rushed a little bit and a couple of notes didn't come out right
but to play thirds is not easy, your brain and hands have to adjust to it
I think if you will keep practicing it with a click at a slow tempo it will be perfect in no time!
BTW great job for only FOUR days! Very good!

Great job !! For me, the only noticeable error was a couple of accidental wrong notes here and there but your technique was generally very good. These are very useful shapes that I use myself and are a good alternate to just going straight up or straight down a scale smile.gif
