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: Alternate Picking Etude With String Skipping by Emir Hot

Stupid triplets! I practiced this etude for about 3-4 weeks with a metronome starting from 80bpm and increasing gradually before actually getting in the original tempo, sorry for those triplets at the end XD

Hi mate! We worked on this lesson at my Vchat sessions and all I can say that it is more difficult than it seems, as it usually happens with Emir's lessons. You are getting close with the lesson, but most of the arpeggios are a bit noisy and some little sections like the first one and the last of the lesson has little timing issues. I think that you are not comfortable yet with the timing so my suggestion is to continue practicing this lesson some minutes diary while you start working on other one.

Keep on the hard work! wink.gif

PS: It would be great if you can show clearly both hands in camera angle in future takes.

Hey there mate smile.gif

I do believe that this is your first REC posting, right? If yes, then congratulations on entering the ZONE biggrin.gif

Now, I think that you should slow this piece down and focus on synchronizing the hands, because this is where the big issue lies. Most of the piece is a bit out of synch and that is killing it. I am sure you can sort it out, but first of all, slow it down and make sure that you can hear every note as clear as the summer sky smile.gif

Keep rocking,

Hi man! Thanx for adding the rec take smile.gif

This lesson is indeed not as simple as it might look when watching Emir's playing. First of all...IMHO there is too much gain - sound is getting blurry and we hear a lot of boomy low end clipping. Playing on such a huge distortion will make You disappointed when trying to play the same on a acoustic guitar fo example....or once You go to play live gigs with a band. To much gain affects the way we practice and make us not able to squeeze good tone from many different types of amps / distortion.

There is still much headroom to work this out but there are two tweaks necessary at the moment:

1. Clear image of Your both hands
2. Clear tone to catch all the details

Anyway...it's not an easy lesson and don't feel upset even if You spent another 3-4 weeks and still not be able to play it perfectly. Some lessons require much longer time and experince. Sometims it's worth to practice for a long time and abandon if it's not working well. Then after another time measure You can always come back to the lesson and challenge Your skills again smile.gif

That's how it usually works with most of us smile.gif

Huge challange, improvements needed but a huge + for You for trying to handle this one smile.gif Kepp up Your hard work and You'll master the lesson
