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: Beginner's Corner 13: C Major Scale by Bear Rose

Hi, my entry level in the world of lead guitar. Please note, my main recording gear was not working, used a back up plan, and in the rec the guitar signal is in one channel only and it is dry, sorry about that. Thanks in advance Carmine

Hi Carmine, don't worry about video quality, it's good for this purpose.

I listened to your lesson twice and I can say that there are only two things that you should focus to master this one. The first one is timing. You are not playing tight with the rhythm, notes reach a bit before or after the beat randomly so pay attention to it, and use the main lesson audio to practice and be sure that you are playing the lesson tight.

The second thing to improve on this one is vibrato. Your vibrato isn't consistent and it's a bit weak. I think that giving a try to this lesson (HERE) could be a good idea since improving your vibrato technique will give your playing a new dimension regarding expression.

You are going on the right track Carmine, just focus on these details and you will master this one.

Keep going! wink.gif

Hello Carmine, I think this was a very respectable effort.

Timing is the main issue here. You have a tendency to play in front of the beat so try not to rush too much.

Gab has mentioned vibrato too... maybe not as much of a priority at this stage but he is correct. At some point you will want to develop a stronger vibrato.

But if you take one thing away from the feedback, try to work on your timing smile.gif

Hello Carmine!

I am with the guys here so, in order not to repeat what they have already clearly stated, I would suggest the good old recording over the original technique, simply because in this situation, after listening to what you have recorded over the original, you will feel where your timing is a bit troublesome.

Please focus on this and let us know how it goes!
