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.

Hi Rhida!

Your legato technique is being polished! You are going on the right track. I can notice a bit improvement on it and also on your vibrato for the longer notes. The first half of the lesson is quite perfect, I don't think that there is so much room to improvements. The second half is not still totally consistent, your pull offs are more irregular on this section, and I note timing issues as well as notes that don't sound clean an clear.

Please dedicate some more time to the second half of this lesson to feel more comfortable and finally polish the whole lesson. Work on small loops based on each position. Also, try to make the connection at 00:30 smoother.

Keep on the hard work! wink.gif

Hey mate - as Gabi said, you need to focus on the second part of the lesson, taking his suggestions into account, in order to get this lesson through with. I don't think there's anything else to say here other than that, so please keep working on things and you'll most surely have a great takee on this one!

Keep rocking!

Hi Rhida, it's good to see you improving your pull-off and overall legato technique.

In the first half of the lesson I can see you're having a small issue with the movement that uses the index finger to move from the B string to the G string at 0:05 and 0:14. This is a tricky move to make anyway so it's not just you.

The key is to almost 'think with your fingertip'. Leave the movement to the last possible moment and just roll your finger tip onto the G string to catch that note. Don't worry, you will get it but this is something that does need attention.

For the last hammer/pull shape of the lesson I notice that you follow Bear's finger patterns by using your 3rd finger to hit the highest note. I would actually recommend that you use your pinky to hit the highest note because it's more efficient and it's also a good excuse to work on your pinky strength.
