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: Clapton Meets Knopfler by Piotr Kaczor

Hi GMC Hi Piotr, Gab, Ben, Darius ans co I made things in 2 parts because the preset didn't suit on the final section. When I decrease the volume of the guitar, the sound loses its sustain and it is not very beautiful.

Hi MisterM,

As I've just commented at the mentoring thread, this is a beautiful take with nothing really relevant to mark regarding things to work. Your playing is precise and expressing. I like how you manage vibrato, bending and dynamics on this one.

I've commented a little detail about tuning but let's see what other instructors think about it.

Keep on the great job!

Hi man, this is a very nice sounding take. Very relaxed and smooth. I like your choice of tone as well - it suits the lesson very well.

I think you still have some work to do to get that natural smoothness required by the blues. It's nothing big, but just small instances such as the shift from one note the the next like at 0:08. A blues player will make it snappy and effortless, like an afterthought. But with you it's more deliberate and concentrated.

You're not doing anything wrong, it's just that the effortless movements required by the blues is only gained by more and more playing. So you will get it - it's not a question of if but when.

Great work!

Opening every of your rec threads does never bring a surprise of fail smile.gif Again you've managed to deliver great piece of music and you have to know this that your'e not only a good player but a musicnian as well and those two things not always go in pair. About the blues mood mentioned by Ben...I think you're doign better and better and I'm also afraid we are sort of powerless trying to explain cause this is something way above theory and "square" rhythm adn articulation assignment. You just need to feel it and that's what you deliver us.

As for volume know adjustment - it's a matter of every single thing ins signal chain...mostly the distortion pedal/amp or whatever. Not all amps or their simulation give best resulats at being articulative and sustaing (compression-wise) at the same time. Sometimes you need to spend a lot of time to find best match but it's worth trying. Volume knob is one of most importanbt guitar tools when it's about a kind of playing presented in this lesson smile.gif
