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.

And hello again ! laugh.gif

I admire you for tackling these lessons.. I think this is has some licks that are a bit beyond your ability at this point and to get them better, we're talking about months of work, not just a week. However, the string bending and the phrasing is within your grasp and I think you can make some really good progress in a short space of time if you focus on string bending and timing.

For the alternate picking licks, it will be a longer journey and we're all here to help you with that. I've made a recent lesson devoted to acquiring good synchronisation between picking and fretting hands. This might make a good separate study for you


We're all happy to help you with improving these elements so feel free to get in touch with us any time about it. I'm sure the other guys can also recommend some good lessons for picking and bending smile.gif

Hi man! You did a good effort on this one and I can say that the things that you mostly need to work are Alternate Picking (synchronicity between both hands at high speed), Bending (reaching the correct pitch) and Vibrato (getting a consistent technique). You should start working on specifically exercises to improve these techniques in order to get a flawless take.

Check out my Intensive Guitar Course where you will find lessons that cover all this techniques: HERE

You did a good effort! Still need a lot of work on your timing and bending plus your guitar was out of tune! Just spend some more time on this lesson and try to really get it! Work on it at a slow tempo and it will be perfect in no time! You are very talented and absolutely have what it takes!
