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: Sweep Picking Arpeggios by Ian Bushell

Hi Guys, after being away for some time, because of work issues, I am am so glad to be back here at GMC... I really missed it. But now to the take: It is not perfect, in my opinion, so please be kind :-). I really worked hard on this one and it feels more difficult that the usual level 8 lessons, especially the string skipping sweeps towards the end, are hard to play clean :-) Anyway I hope you like it... Cya, s.

Yo Steve, good to see you back and wow, what a choice for a REC.. brave man !

I'd say your sweeping technique is good, your right hand looks very relaxed and capable. I think you just need to synch the fretting hand up with it a bit better, that's all. At the moment the left hand is lagging behind just a bit so the synch isn't 100% there and a lot of the melody is getting lost.

But you can do this.. keep going at it ! cool.gif

Hi mate! The same for this lesson! Your sweep picking technique is already very promising, you just have to work at slower tempos concentrating on the sync of both hands. Keep on working hard! wink.gif
