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: Power Of Mini Sweeps by Ben Higgins

Second recording since 28 December 2012, recorded right after the "Trash like Mustaine" lesson. It's not as good as it could be, but recording was stressful, so I am quite happy with it as it is.

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude it's great to see the Polish warrior back again.. and your hair has grown ! \m/

It's all pretty damn perfect up to 0:40.. from there onwards, some of the hammer ons are getting lost because they're probably lagging behind a bit. But that's all - great work biggrin.gif

Ben is the master guide here so if his words are the priority smile.gif Very well done. Nice and clean with just a few moments to tweak but this is already studio quality playing man! Well done smile.gif

Hey mate! This is a very good take! Your mini sweeps are clean and precise! I think that the only thing lacking to make this take superb is that you could relax a bit more while you record yourself. I'm sure that you can add more feeling to this take, just keep on practicing in front of the camera.
