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: Beginner's Corner 22: Hammer-On by Bear Rose

Hey guys! Here is my first REC take. If the video is not upright try changing the quality to 480p. I had to record on my iPhone which made it mess up. Thanks everyone!

You did a very good job! I like this take! A few times it seemed to me that you weren't sure what will come next also you were rushing a little bit when played pinky! It's a great take for the first time! I will vote 9 because I feel you can do even better! Spend a little bit more time with this lesson and it will sound perfect!

Hey Trey, it's good to see you jumping in to the REC !

It's hard to get a good hammer on sound with a clean tone because you haven't got as much juice to get the notes to sound. However it will also get you working harder on producing a stronger sound with your fingers so it's got good and bad points.

If you could get the pinky sounding the notes a bit better then I think that'll help you a lot. Many people neglect pinky strength for years and it's hard to go back and start re training it so at least you can get this area sorted now smile.gif

Good take man! I think that you did a good job with this one. It only needs some more strength to mke the hammer ons sound at the same volume than the picked notes and also some little timing adjustment. It's an 8 for me! Good job. smile.gif
