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: Vivaldi's Four Seasons - Summer by Ramiro Delforte

Here's my take, not perfect as always and a lot of wrong notes in this take! But I tried to do like one take, one shot. Moreover, the camera stresses me a lot tongue.gif

Feel free to read the video description in Youtube for more info and tell me what you think and where I could really improve myself

Hey mate! This is a very daring endeavor smile.gif I am one of Vivaldi's greatest fans alive and I can tell you this is no easy piece. Your effort is good, but you need to focus on a few things now:

- moving less - both your left and right hand are moving too much - you need to diminish the movements in all techniques so that you may gain speed and accuracy

- practicing slow - all of the above will happen once you have enough control - slow speed, generally brings control with it, so practice at slow speed until EVERYTHING sounds perfect smile.gif

- pay attention to EVERY detail - be sure you won't miss any notes - once again, slow practice will bring this into place wink.gif

I am VERY curious to see a second take, having all the above included in your practice routine!

Keep rocking!

Hi man! This is a very demanding lesson an I think that you are on the right track. You already know all the sections, now it's time to adjust everything. It requires a lot of hard work, so be patient and work diving it in sections and paying attention to details as Cosmin said. Regarding the camera panic, don't worry about it! It will disappear with practice. So keep on practising this one an record a new take as soon as you notice some improvement! wink.gif

This is a hard one. Glad that You decided to challange it. I'm afraid we need more low midrange in the guitar tone to make the notes clear and breaking through the backing mix. For now it's a huge amount of attack but not to much root frequencies that include basic tone of each note. Cosmin's got a good point here - too much movement will make tired very fast. You make most of the picking from the whole elbow / arm. This is not a good idea for long and fast runs. Try to seperate accents and the notes that are filling the rest. Keep the accents played hard but use the fills to relax Your right hand. Currently Your right hand movement is too random. I think You need more focusing on finding the better setup for the right hand than just a practice. Sometimes we need to make one step back so we can later do two forward smile.gif
