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: Melodic MacAlpine by Daniel Realpe

This time I try a MacAlpine lesson.. A beautiful melody made by Daniel R and I hope I dont mess it up to much :D

If it sounds good, it IS good ! And if you think its good then there is gonna be someone else in the world that thinks its good:) Wise words from former instructor Marcus Lavendell.

Hi nava! Good playing on this one. There are some short moments that could sound tighter but I think that you are on the right path with this one. Work on each phrase a bit more to make it sound smoother and isolate that fast trills lick and practice it as a loop to be more comfortable with it. Keep on the hard work!

Hey there Nava! I agree with Gabe on this one and I think that lick at 0:45 is the one that he was referring to. It needs more slow practice on its own and then implemented in the whole context - I think that kind of covers things with this take.

Keep rocking,

as for the 0:45 I would do something different. I would try to practise it with a few notes before and afew notes after in the same tempo and or just a little slower. Sometimes there are some little fingering flaws or the right hand is not tensioned properly to make fast lick out of nowhere. It think I would treat it this way...but that's just my subjective opinion smile.gif I think it's a problem of not enough confidence while position shifts. I would try to focus on every noe that begins each part just after position change in this lick. Anyway very good job my friend! smile.gif
