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: Bebop Licks by Stephane Lucarelli

I noticed the tab was a little different than the way Stephane played it. I'm not very good with a pic so I used nails.

Hi friend, good effort on this lesson. It's not a bad take but there are some things to improve. I think that your playing sounds with more swing than the original lesson, check out how Stephane plays the 8th notes straighter. I notice that some notes are muted too quickly and that makes your playing less smooth compared with the original lesson, try to make the silence between notes smaller. The are also some licks that has notes that doesn't sound and have some little timing issues.

In other words, you are close but you should continue practicing it concentrated on those things.

Keep on the hard work!

Hello mate smile.gif

It looks like you have a guitar which is very fitting for this style, so please focus on the timing and on the whole pulse of the phrasing - try to record over Stephane's original recording and notice the differences, ok?

In that way you will get a good hang of the pulse smile.gif

Keep rocking!

I like the tone and I think it's not a bad idea to play it with the fingers. But I would stick to what Gabriel said at the beginning. Your shuffle is to intense. Stephane played more straight notes with just a tiny shuffle flavor. In Your take we have too much of a galope feel. There are also a few flaws - maybe caused by righ-left hand sync problems. Anyway flavor of listening is there and You did a good job
