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: Dynamics Control by Diego Budicin

Hello guys, here another take of this lesson. I think this take is much better. I focused on the fast parts an trained to use the same picking direction for each lick the same time. For example i stqart with an upstroke the second part of the last lick :) Thanks in advanced Greetz Tim

Hi Tim, it's a bit too early for me to say yet whether there's much of a difference. Perhaps it sounds a bit more connected and there's less moments of pauses or notes dying out or sounding weak. That could be due to slightly more sustain in the tone you're using.

In terms of technique your fretting hand is definitely the weakest link in the chain. But that's ok. Something has to be and it's either going to be one hand or the other smile.gif

If you're working on hand sync and picking then you're developing the strength of your fretting hand and the other important thing: finger independence. These do take time to develop.. more than 8 days. So it will be some time before any significant difference can occur in the way your fingers can move across the note, bend etc.

I would recommend leaving longer times between takes but if you need quicker feedback then you could upload to YT and link to it in the forum. That way you can get feedback on technical aspects but it doesn't have to qualify as a REC.

Hi mate,

Great to see you working hard on this one. As Ben said, our comments for the previous take are still applicable to this new one. I think that you need more time in order to fix all the different elements required to master this lesson.

It's not an easy lesson, and it includes many elements so as I usually recommend, the best is to work on 1 element at a time, and divide the lesson in smaller blocks. It's a bit long to be worked as a whole at this point.

Keep on the hard work.

Hey Tim!

I agree with guys above. I belive you need to give it more time and more conscious practise. There are some details fixed though...overall timing, intonation and precision but the distance between takes is a too short and we can't tell that things are fixed like "day to night" difference. I think it's a demand of more complex skills improvement to be able to play this one exactly like you want.
