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.

Hi there! smile.gif Great to see another take smile.gif It's a bit better but unfortunately You loose lot of notes - especially alll last notes of each shape. It's harder to quickly switch to different position but it's not ok to sacrifice last note to have more time for position shift. Also...playing on the clean tone is not a solution. It's just hidding the problem that is still there. I think You should try it with distortion to get most of the profits from this lesson.

Two things You should really focus on:

1. First finger (left hand) always touching the strings that are above the one You play
2. Focus on left hand shape shortle before every position shift so You will have sort of template ready to use as soon as You move Your hand to the right position.

Hi mate, this lessons still needs work, time of practice. There are many wrong notes, muted notes and sync between both hands issues. My suggestion is to turn on your metronome at a slower tempo and start working on this one in blocks. Divide the whole thing in isolated exercises and work on them as a loop. Then connect the different parts over the backing tracks.

Mate - I think the guys are right and their suggestions can help a big lot along the way. But at this point, this lesson is a bit too much of a match for you, so give it time. I want to be realistic with you - it would be better for you to post a take of this lesson in the Practice room, played over the slowest available backing track and make sure that you outline your technique as perfect as possible at that slow tempo.

I for one would be more than happy to see that you have understood and applied the principles at a slow tempo rather then post in the REC zone wink.gif

How does that sound to you?
