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: Jumping Harmonies by Diego Budicin

I know it's not perfect and I was actually pretty mad when I recorded this. What do I need to do?

Hi Jim!

This is not an easy lesson and I think that you can play most the the trickier parts very smoothly. The main issues appear when you have to use hybrid picking, mostly on the first part. There you are not playing the rhythm tight and clean. The solo section has some moments that need to be adjusted because timing is not totally tight or some licks are not clean.

What do you need? You need to be happy because your playing and technique are REALLY good, continue practicing, isolate the trickier parts and work on them at slower tempos until you master them.

Keep on rocking. smile.gif

Hi Jim, that wasn't bad at all. You asked what was wrong with it.. in a word; timing. That's it. Nothing too bad going on at all.

During the opening hybrid section you get the first finger roll quite well, the timing goes awry around 0:08 when you've got to get 3 consecutive hits in. It just rushes a bit there.

As for everything else, you've got the phrasing fine.. it just doesn't necessarily occur when it should. Some of the licks begin a fraction late so you're racing to fit them in.

If I was playing this lesson, remembering how to time the phrases would definitely be the trickiest part. So don't be too hard on yourself. It's easy to say that, I know how mad I would get if I can't get something down the way I want it.

But there's nothing wrong with your playing, just need to get the timing.. being frustrated will knock your timing out anyway smile.gif

Btw, that is a damn fine tone you're using, reminds me of Satch's tone on parts of the Surfing album, particularly the solos on Echo.

Hey Jim! Great to see You working hard on Your technique! smile.gif You're a bit after the beat in most cases. It looks like You still have to rethink every move on the fretboard while playing. The hard thing about technical lessons is that You really need to make them work perfect in Your head first - You have to be completely sure where each finger goes before You even start to move it. Some licks simply doesn't leave any headroom for thinking where to place Your hand. I'm sure You could get very far with this one if You spend some more time. Try to reach the moment when You don't have to think what to play. Then You'll be free to relax and focus on perfect timming and feel. But don't get sad - it's not an easy lesson and You did a lot of work here smile.gif
