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: Funky Blues Rhythm by Stephane Lucarelli


I deleted my old take because tone was so aggresive.

I work this lesson for 2 months.
It is very hard to play funk rythm.
It is necessary to be relaxed and to learn has well to hold the pick.

Sometimes the pick turned in my fingers because I tightened too hardly.
At present, I understood, it does not turn any more.

I think of having reached the maximum of my capacities.
I shall look for other lessons to continue to progress.

Thank you for your advice.

Hi MisterM!

Happy new year!

You've been working very hard at the mentoring thread, and I could follow your progress on this lesson which is really impressive. Your fuk rhythm is much more consistent than in the past and this take really shows it.

You know my thoughts about this one, as well as the other lessons that you are working, so I'm here just for grading.

Keep on the great job!

Hi there - Happy New Year!

I can't find anything wrong with this take and I've listened several times! huh.gif

The timing is very solid, the tone is nice and clear and you manage to switch between percussive dead notes and the chords / notes very well.

The only thing I would improve is mix your guitar LOUDER. In a track like this, your guitar is the only lead instrument. There's no vocals so don't be shy - bring it forward in the mix smile.gif

Hey there!

Yet again we have a piece of great playing from you. Aside from guitar loudness in the mix, I have nothing to complain. Maybe it would be easier to spot anything if the guitar was just about 2dB's louder. At this point it's a great piece of work. Remember that from player's perspective you can literally feel each note and know exactly where some of your strumming/picking was not 100% confident. But...the good news...we all have this and it very often does not translate to what listener's hear. You are becoming a professional player. Keep up the good work!
