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: Toto (the early days) by Guido Bungenstock

Hello Guido, Gab, Darius, Ben and all GMCer. This lesson is hard I work above for months. I am not capable of doing better, I shall make a new REC by a few months. I harmonized sequences 00 " 36 - 00 " 44 ' and the final notes. I gave the best of me. Thank you for your precious advices, Thx my Mentor Gab

I love to listen to excellent job done by Gab with his students in the mentoring threads. You are really close with this one.
It's very good you can spot some issues by yourself - I'm sure you exactly know which spots of those faster licks need more work - those are not precise yet. Also I can hear that you not always reach the pitch while bending. There are visible timing issues but it's cleary a lack of confidence to cause them - you still hesitate where to place the fingers at some points.

You have worked out a grea touch and dynamics controls. I see you're now trying to reach even more, and you dig into stuff that is even more dense. Working with such a stuff is not much different than things you did before. Bsasic difference is....you really have to 100% load all faster licks into your muscle memory (with phrasing lessons you had more time to wonder on where to place the fingers). Only when you reach that point, you will be able to 100% focus on the dynamics and timing control itself smile.gif

Of course you're take is far from being bad - we only discuss the details that would help to make it sound even better smile.gif

Hi man, this is pretty good! Overall I think your tone works well for the lesson - just the right amount of gain too.

Your bending sounds quite precise here too, I know Darius referenced it but I didn't notice anything that sounded out.

The main points for improvement would be timing. Your timing is always good anyway but there's a lot of different stuff going on in this lesson and some of the tougher runs are testing your timing to its limits here so this leads me into my next point...

The fast / complex licks. I notice that you've always slightly had issues with licks that use quick hammer-ons / pull-offs and licks that use slides. For example, the hammer/pull that should occur at 0:32 sounds more lick a pull-off but without the hammer-on that precedes it. The final descending run also sounds a little lacking in note clarity / timing.

So it's just a case of keep practising the harder stuff, because you're tackling harder lessons now. This is going to be the case anyway. You;ve done a great job!

Hi mate!

You are a really hard worker and this takes shows it. It's not an easy lesson and I can say that you are very close to master it. As we've been talking at the mentioning thread, the lesson needs some more practice in order to polish those elements that also Ben and Darius marked (bending, timing), but I know that you are on the right track, so keep on this way.

See you at the mentoring thread!
