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.

Hey Tom!

Your picking strength is very well matched in the beginning part- this amout of strength seems to be natural for you to execute. I'm also happy that you are working on your ability to play harder. It's really necessary and it's natural that at this point it make cause some trouble. I'm sure you can notice that faster runs are not clean yet - timing goes off and some notes get lost. My tip for you would be to focus mostly on the moments where you need to skip from one string to another. Make a little wider pick motion for this purpose. You can also increase pick angle.

at moments like 1:04 (there are at least two in this take) you need to use strumming motion rather than picking with a solid resting point on the bridge. I know you are abel to do this because in the first half you did it just right. Strumming even if through a narrow width will always give better connection for notes to be played together with particular rhythm.

Bend with vibrato was not clean and vibrato was not visible - you need to retry this moment a few more times to see where the cause could be.

Now as you start to play more dense than before I would have an ultra important advice. Always try to copy picking direction of each note from original take. Picking direction has it's purpose on both fields - tone and comfort of playing. I belive one of causes of your fails at quicker runs is your random picking direction. Not always the same, non-regular. For players at your level in 90% cases it's the reason of all timing and "lost notes" issues.

Aside from above your progress is satisfying and I wish you all best on your way to become a masterclass player smile.gif

Hi Tom, it's great see your progress. Your chord work at the beginning is very tasteful and sounds great. I wondered if there was a string or two not quite in tune though?

The lead section is obviously going to have more challenges and yes, you still have a way to go but you also performed very well.

Darius is correct about the picking direction thing. I would definitely recommend that you nail the concept of alternate picking. You don't need to be a speed demon, but all players should at least be able to play any run at a slow or medium tempo and be able to maintain alternate pick strokes without losing the direction. So this is something that Gab can help you with as well. smile.gif
