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 Tim,

This lesson is over your current level but I think that it's a good idea to work on demanding lessons, mostly when these lessons motivate us and keeps us going.

This take will serve as a guide to monitor your progress on different elements that show issues:

- timing
- vibrato
- bending
- cleanness
- hands sync
- dynamics

There are many licks and many stuff to work on this one so take your time to go deep with each lick as you've been doing with the other lessons you've worked.

Keep on the hard work!

Hey Tim smile.gif

My thougths are similar to Gabriel's. It's good to make yourself a challenge from time to time but this lesson is above your level at the moment. Please don't mind me saying this but it's more a cre of a friend than a trolling. I think you are trying to do too many things at once. You post a lot of takes and you improve at some point, but there are still some issues that are not fixed in your overall playing. You've got a serious problems with string skipping and precision while playign anything that is on "solo-mode" and faster than few phrasing notes. We all know you have an excellent groove flowing in you and you'ver worked out some really good skills lately but the deeper you go into this, the more demanding things become. It's really worth to make yourself focused over single problem at once and work it out until it's solved. Maybe you need to review your right hand resting points,m position, left hand shaping etc. This will profit for all of your future playing and it will be like a fix for every single take, for every single lesson you'll make in the future. It's not the numer of lesson that counts but the quality and attention brought to the practise.

Hi Tim, as the guys have said this lesson is a bit beyond your current capabilities but one thing to take from this is that you're hand synchronisation is still one of the biggest things you need to improve.

I really recommend focusing your practise into a smaller area rather than chucking out tons of REC takes.. you know which areas are your weak spots by now so perhaps choose one or two lessons that focus on improving your picking and legato. We need those hand working together! smile.gif
