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: Power Of Mini Sweeps by Ben Higgins

Have been working on it for 6 days. Audio quality is pretty bad so apologies for that. The legatos at the end are quite sloppy still but working on it. Need some feedback..

Hey, this is great !! You're doing really well on this.

When you do those really fast ones near the end, don't keep your middle finger resting on the B string or this will create a 'notes that bleed into each other' type of sound. Only fret the notes when you need them and this will help separate the sound smile.gif

I even lift off the index finger when it's not needed but not everybody does that. It's not quite as necessary as lifting off the other fingers when they're not needed. I hope that helps ! Keep up the good work smile.gif

Hey mate! Congratulations for this great take smile.gif I agree with Ben's advice - lifting all your fingers will tighten up the sound and offer definition - and I think that you did very well on it. You know what? I think I'm going to practice this one myself biggrin.gif

Good job man! In addition to Ben's comment I will say that the timing is a bit off in some parts, mostly in the faster ones. The notes sound good but you lose a bit the rhythm, so I think that you should practice this one at a slower tempo to make it perfect. By the way it's a 9 for me! Well done! smile.gif

You've already got the right advice, no need to repeat. This is a very demanding song, so despite the errors in timing,what I like most is a clean tone, super! Keep working wink.gif
