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.

Hello there Artyom!

Nice take man! My only suggestion would be to focus on shifting the positions in good timing - some of them were a bit unsure, if I may say so smile.gif it's the only thing that keeps you away from mastering this lesson.

Brilliant take Artyom ! smile.gif

Just some moments of hesitation here and there but that will vanish as your fingers get more accustomed to this technique and those type of shapes. Really good work, you're on the right track so keep going !

Also, would you be interested in sharing your experiences of learning legato and working on that track in this thread ?


I devoted this thread to legato and it's there for anyone to share their experiences and thoughts on the technique.. your input will be really valuable to the fellow GMCers smile.gif

You did a great job! It is not an easy technique to master so it will take some time! Your left hand looked too tight and that's what caused shifting problem! Try to relax it and make sure you take brakes! It's a mechanical exercise and you have to get your muscle memory going the trick is: slower you play it better results you will get!!! Also always use a click!! Keep it up!
