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.

Hey mate - I think you are on the right path with sweeping - it also looks like the picking is done in one movement, literally sweeping the strings as it should, although there are moments when it looks like the note separation is too obvious. Concerning the hand sync - you should practice slower to get all the notes sounding clean, ok?

Good job! You are getting better mate! Keep on practising this lesson Concentrating on hand sync and also on timing which is something difficult when you play sweeps at this tempo. Also make sure that the slide sounds more clearly picks stronger and sliding with more strength.

This is a nice one ! You have correct right hand movement so just try to sync the left hand ! I think with a little more exercise, this will be for 10..

Looking and sounding good !! You definitely got the hang of the sweep motion now smile.gif

When returning back down the neck, you slightly rush the little finger slides on the A string which puts your next arpeggio a bit in front, so try to keep the sliding as controlled as you can as well. It's not easy, especially when playing slow ! smile.gif
