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: Asturias - Isaac Albeniz by Vinod Saranga

I did the fingering a little differently. On the triplets i used the third instead of fourth to reach the melody notes better.

Hi there smile.gif

This is a good attempt at a very tricky looking but beautiful piece. My main observation would be with the left hand. You have a tendency to move your fingers off the notes too quickly, so they don't sound for the required duration. This is most noticeable when you fret with your little finger.

In the 2nd and 3rd movements I have the same observation but the 3rd is compromised due to your different finger positioning. It looks quite awkward to me and I think you would benefit more from persevering with the original fingering. It's worth putting in the extra effort now to save you more trouble in the future. I can tell that your fingers are not quite as supple as they could be at the moment but this is something that can be learned, don't worry !

You will really benefit from freeing up your fingers and working on them everyday. Just a little bit of concentrated effort with trying to improve your chord fingering and stretching distance. Do just enough so that they get a good stretch but don't do too much. It won't take a lot to overdo it.. so it's better to do too little than too much. But just try and make them work a bit harder at stretching everyday and gradually you'll notice the difference smile.gif

Nice take of this really demanding lesson! Once again I agree with Ben about timing, and I think that he detailed very well the reason why you are having this issue. Besides that, I think that your right hand technique will become more consistent and strong with practice so it's a great lesson for training. I can hear some notes that sound quieter or less clear in some sections but this will be fixed soon.

Keep on the good job mate!

I've notice You bend the 5th string a bit while holding 3rd finger constantly. Ben has a good point about moving Your fingers too far away from fretboard while they while come back anyway at the same position. Some of the notes where missing - mutes or the lef - right hand synchronization went out. This might be cause by a few things. sometimes it's just not enough war up before recording. This could also be sort of "recording nerves". Very often we loose precision while trying to be...too precise wink.gif You focus too much, tense and even things are are able to play relaxed, don't want to come out the way they should. This lesson needs more work but You already got the basics smile.gif
