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: Picking Hand Basics by Ben Higgins

I changed the position of my guitar, and put some more arm into it. A little difficult at first. My 4/4 was sounding like 2/2 but I think I corrected that.

Hey John!

It's much better man! There are a few slips here and there, especially in the first sections dealing with 16th notes (a few missed notes, but you adjusted on the way)

Keep going till you reach perfection!

Hi Palacios! Great to see you working hard on your right hand technique. I can notice that you are improving very fast! Your picking is slowly getting more consistent and tight. There is nothing to fix here, just continue practicing trying to make it sound more precise over the backing. Keep on the good job!

There is a visible improvement but I would try to verify that technique while trying to play harder. Sometimes when we play soft we do not experince some issue that comes out while playing hard. Try to check what happens witch Your hand when You'll try to play hard. Good job - the progress is there! smile.gif
