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: Neoclassical Three-Level-Lesson, Intermediate by Marcus Lavendell

This is a very hard one for me. had a lot of trouble with the descending lick starting from the 19th fret. Marcus plays this in Eb, I am in drop D and just play everything a fret lower.

Hi mate, good job!

The overall energy of this take is very cool. I think that you can play the lesson really well but that there are some small details in your technique that need to be adjusted in order to be able to play more advanced lessons.

I'm talking about your hands movements. When playing alternate picking passages, the faster on this one, I notice that you fix your hand and don't focus your right hand movement from your wrist. I recommend you to check some Darius alternate picking lessons (basics) in order to make your right hand movement more effective. I also think that your left hand fingers could be moved less.

Besides that, I think that your tone and vibrato are really good and that your bending is precise on this one.

Keep going!

I kept watching your take to try to find something wrong with it but I can't. Your vibrato and bending is really excellent and definitely the right kind of thing for this type of lesson.

You mentioned having trouble with that descending lick but I didn't see or hear anything to give that impression.

Brilliant work, how about level 3 next?

Same as Ben I would like to say that there is nothing to complain from listeners perspective. What makes us worried is the visual part. Your right hand looks very tensed and most of the responsibility has been moved to the forearm instead of wrist. I would suggest you to experiment with your right hand because with you current method you will have serious problems playing faster.

Aside from that. For the future you can contact me if you need some track to be transposed because of your different tuning. You don't have to learn the lessons in a different positions smile.gif Just remember to request for transposition through PM.

Overall I like your intense articulation, picking strength and energy. You rock man!
