Hi Gab

I made 2 REC this morning.
I wanted to make the third "Ballad Solo Rock by Guido", but I had not enough time.
What do you think about them ?

I harmonized Guido's track on 3 sequences. (36' / 44' and final notes)
If you want to listen to, here is the link of the track : http://ahp.li/a76c5348ee4ae84f1f14.mp3

Hi MisterM! Great job with these lessons! There is not too much to fix on these takes. Maybe some little passages that could sound clearer like that one at 00:40 in Satriaini lesson, and some others in the other lesson. The overall sounds very good.

About the harmonizations, good idea! I like how they add emotion to the phrasing there. Good job!

Hi mate, great to know that you are proud of your playing. This lesson is sounding really good, there are not dramatic things to improve. You can play all the licks and you look comfortable with most of the parts. Some more days/weeks of practice will help you to make vibrato more natural, and to adjust some of the faster phrases that could sound smoother.

It's just a matter of time, keep going!

It's not that bad, but it has room to improvement. It's always good to share takes at REC to know how you are going. Don't regret sharing it, it's part of the journey. I'll wait for the new take.

Thank Gab

I'm waiting for few weeks before put it.

Edit : My 2 takes on workshop received 2 votes/3
Guido isn't core instructor, Can you add your vote ?

For the moment I don't any more want to play guido's lesson "Rock Ballad Solo"
I too much played, I need time to replay it

I work a new lesson : https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/slow_rock_solo/
I shall make an audio take tomorrow with the track 75 %.

You will tell me of what you think about it.

Hi mate, I've graded yout take at REC, check it out!

I like the new choice for practice. It's an interesting lesson with fresh phrasing, strong vibrato and bending. It's a good next step so let's go for it and focus on those 3 elements.

Hi Gab,

I look at the section REC and I have questions ?
I work hard with not a lot of time, I am not a professional musician.

Sometimes I find that comments are severe.
My video of " rock solo ballad " contains errors of timing and cleanliness but I try always to give the best of my capacities.

Darius gave a grade 5/10 but I do not really understand the reason.
His written English is complicated to understand, I do not know how to or improve things

The videos of the other guitarists also contain errors and grade are better.

How I have to understand things ? You understand my feeling?

Hi MisterM,

I totally understand your feeling and I'll try to explain why we are that strict at REC. The only goal for us at REC is to help students to become the better they can be. We've been "less" severe in the past and with the pass of years, trial and error we noted that students are here to learn and we are here to help to become better so that's why we mark mostly the things to work at REC. You wouldn't benefit from my comment if I say: "great job man! I like your playing!" and nothing else about the real playing... about timing, rhythm, articulation, dynamics, bending pitch, tone.

In the past we used to grade differently so every take was passing and we didn't have a headroom to illustrate with grading number the real progress of a student with a lesson. That's why, after longs talks with Kris and other students we've decided to approach grading differently. I cannot tell you why Darius exactly put that grading (you can ask him), but I can share with your my approach to grading:

"Hi guys! Interesting discussion here. About the REC grading, I've been thinking on a new approach in order to decide the grade that I'll give to the takes. Kris send me some old grading guidelines that included this topics:

1, Rhythm placement: Overall ability to play in rhythm and keep a steady tempo. This aspect should take into consideration the groove factor of certain lessons such as topics involving shuffle or swing type of rhythm.

2. Cleanness: The cleanness factor evaluates the student's ability to play something with clarity and precision. This is indicative of the overall level of playing as well as the amount of practice of this particular lesson

3. Feel: The feel factor determines if the student shows comfort in the chosen musical piece. Several factors are included in the feel criteria such as rhythm placement, posture and overall lesson execution.

4. Posture: Posture determines if the student is holding the instrument correctly and shows comfort while playing. This criteria should of course take into account the difficulty of the lesson.

5. Sound: The sound factor will grade the student's tone and ability to play a piece with a similar type of sound. This section will not give advantage to students with more expensive gear, it is more of a general way to see if you can chose an appropriate tone to the lesson you're working on.

Each of these topics mean 2/10 of the total grade, and I'll include: 0, 0.5, 1, 1.5 and 2. The final grade will be the sum of everything. If I get a "x.5" I'll go to the closer low number. For example if the sum of everything is 5.5, my grade will be 5.

I'll do this internally, I won't publish this method and individual concepts grades every time I evaluate a take but I wanted to share with you my new approach."


This is my method, it can be a bit imprecise or aubjetive sometimes but be sure that it's around it and that my only idea is to help you to become a better musician.

Hi Gab,

Thank you for your explanations. I understand your method.
I am registered at GMC for more than 1 year and I progressed a lot.
I hope one day to be capable of playing some Joe Satriani's titles.

I am in a phase or the progress is slow, I have to work details and it is very difficult but I keep the hard work.
The GMC's level is very high and it's hard to play like a musician with 20/30 years experience.

My experience is 10 years when i was young without instructor.
When I was 22 years old, I stop the guitar, when I was 41 years old I restart guitar.

Today I was 44 years old. I am decided has to become a big guitarist. I know that the way is long.

yes, the way is everything. We always feel that there is something new to learn and to master and that's what makes this so motivating for me. Everything is possible with hard work and practice, we only need to be patient and work hard every day.

Hi Gab

I made a REC of Emir Hot's Lesson

What do you think about it ?

I work this lesson since 15 days.
It is a first video and I am proud of the work. I like my new tone smile.gif

- I forgot to play some notes before the final bends.
- My sound is low, I am above going to work.

You see other things ?

Good job man! I don't now any other important things to improve on this one. I just feel that some licks could sound groovier, but other than that this is a great take. Congrats!

Hi Gab

I'll try to make better in the next Take.
If it succes, I'll like post in the REC Section..

Yesterday I ve played with my Stratocaster tuning Eb.
These 2 lessons will help me on my work of dynamics.

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Blues-...to-SRV-Style-1/
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Blues-...SRV-Style-Solo/

My question : Can you listen to the Backing Track ?
The bass play C/Eb/F, this is not a lesson's track ?

That's a killer lesson choice. Yeah, you're right, the backing track is not correct. I'll ask adm to see if this can be fixed. I'll be back about it.
