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: Jazz Funk Licks by Stephane Lucarelli


I work this lesson since 2 months.
It's difficult to get precision and dynamic as Stephane.
I used TH3 preset : lead fusion dual cab 1

I gave the best of myself

Very nice!

No biggies to comment on here. I could sometimes hear a missed note in the faster passages - but nothing that would affect my overall musical impression.

As you know, the big thing which I usually comment on with your takes - is to groove with the music and try to not think about playing correctly / avoiding mistakes. I still believe this is what's needed for one of your REC takes to sound truly pro. Perhaps you could revisit an old lesson you know really well by now - and see if you can play it without thinking too much?

On a final note it sounds like Steph's sound is more compressed thank yours - this can certainly can make the faster runs easier to play. This is especially true for clean sounds.

Keep up the amazing work - you get an 8 from me!

Hi MisterM!

We are working on this one at the mentoring program so you already know my thoughts about your playing and tone of this one. It's interesting to see that Kris also thinks that there is a groove / feel thing to improve in your phrasing, and that it seems that your playing could sound better if you relax and don't worry that much about perfection.

By the way, this take is a new proof of your hard work and dedication.

Keep on the great job!!

Hey there!

I generally think that the groove thing comes when you reach a 200% of ease to play a lesson. I think you are almost perfect with this one. You do a very important thing - you are able to get warm, soft tone with your hand, and you get better and better at doing contrast in your jazz runs. at the point you got to, you need to realize how subjective our opinions may start to be. I can understand that..let's say "military discipline" in your playing becasue your mind get's the information that "hey...you're being recorded" Also...I think you did a perfect job here. I think that the grade 10 groove in playign comes when you play your own stuff/impro/song. That's when you really dig into it and become true to a listener. In other words when you try to sing someone else's lyrics..it's not the same as singing your own tale.

As for the missing notes i get it totally opposite. It's a kind of Gambale style runs that are not to be considered as "computer precise shredding". These are done to become an ornament and there are less "square rules" on their execution.

You get a 10 for me because I think you did best you could to translate someone else's emotions. Well done
