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: Luca Turilli (Rhapsody) Lesson by Pavel Denisjuk

Ola my fellow instructors smile.gif

I have been away for a way way long time due to some big changes happened in my life and unfortunately i had to take a break from playing guitar for 2-3 years on and off. But finally things seem good now and i've decided to pick this beauty up again. Here is my humble attempt playing in the style of one of my idols, the man himself who introduced me to neoclassical. It has been always my dream playing these lessons and neoclassical in general and i am really happy that i am showing signs of improvent. I know i have flaws of course but ready to receive your feedbacks and improve even further.

Hey mate - awesome to see you back!

You have a cool sound and the mix feels clean. At spots your picking feels very precise - so the best advice I can give is to keep going and be sure to not exceed your comfort speed. I also notice slightly more missed notes at the end of phrases/patterns. This is usually a sign your brain cannot keep up with the tempo, as it's trying to stay ahead of things but gets overloaded.

Since this lesson is mostly about technique I will give you a 5. I still felt the attitude and sound was right though - so extra credits for that. Once you fix the missed notes this will sound amazing.

Hi mate,

The main problem on this take is hand sync. Your left hand is not pressing the frets at the same moment than your right hand is picking and that's why this doesn't sound clean and clear. I think that the best that you can do it to divide this lessons in smaller blocks and work on this parts as a loop at slower tempos, trying to make both hands go in sync, and also being sure that you are moving your hands and fingers the less possible. Economising your movements at slower tempos is the secret to get used to it and be able to play at faster tempos.

The good side of this take is that your tone is good, and that I don't note noises coming from other notes so you'll be mastering this one as soon as you put your hands in sync.

Keep the hard work!

Hey there!

For my opinion, in the rehearsal conditions I work with, the guitar get's a little lost in the mix. I mean - same as backing track it's sort of pushed out with low mids. The tone itself is really good and with other type of solo it could be just fine, but I think that in this case a perfect spot in frequency spectrum haven't been found and both guitar and backing track disturbs each other. Maybe cutting some mids on the backing track would be a perfect solution, that doesn't demand applying changes to your general guitar tone. Those things are of course subjective but that's how I hear things in my home studio.

Second thing is the pitch. There are pitch issues. It's worth to recheck the tuning a few times before recording. It will get even more stable if you stretch the strings and make sure last move of tuning peg is always "up". Also...it's worth to recheck tuning on frets. Not always open strings will tune pefectly with the frets. We usually search for a kind of compromise.

As for the playing there are little hand sync issue to be noticed but your hand mechanics looks quite good so there is nothing critical to be fixed, rather just even more practise smile.gif
