> Rules

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

hahaha your cat's face is awesome! biggrin.gif

You did a great job with this lesson. Your alternate picking sounds consistent with a full tone and a very tight tempo. There are some little moments where you tend to play just a bit before the beat but it's just a very little details, most of the take sounds tight and clear.

I think that you are now ready for more advanced Alternate Picking lessons. Don't miss these ones:


Keep on the great job!

Hey matey!!

So glad to see you post the take in here wink.gif We have discussed the details and now, you should only focus on becoming steadier on the grove in time. I think it's time to move forward, so please check out your mentoring thread to see what I left there biggrin.gif

All the best!!
