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.

Excellent choice of lesson.

You handle the different beat sub divisions well - and this is the main focus / challenge of this lesson.

* A couple of position shifts are giving your problems. You probably need to spend a little more time practicing the slower tempos to achieve 100% confidence in every position shift.

* This is a perfect opportunity to practice precise finger placement. You should fret just behind the fretwire as this will give you best tone and will require the least amount of finger pressure.

You get an 7 from me!

Hi Nico!

As we are working on this one at my mentoring program, you already know my thoughts. However, this is a new take and I see some little improvements compared to the previous one. I think that keeping this one as a warm up is still a good idea.

Besides Kris comments, I think that now you can start paying some attention to dynamics. Notice how the instructor accentuates the first note of each group of time figures (8th notes, 16th notes and triplets). Let me know if you can get what I mean.

Keep on the good job!

Hey there again wink.gif

I think you can be proud of yourself. There are some little (mainly timing) issues that would probably make you re-record things few more times if recording an album in real studio , but there are other aspects that turned out really well and the timing issues themselves were really tiny.

Your picking sounds even. Each note has similar tone and picking strength. There are some typical moments were we experience loss of confidence - usually beginning and first bars of pattern change. In other words - you need a few bars to better dig into new lick/rhythm.

Besides above I would ratehr start to adjust right hand resting point. You play a little too far from the bridge. Try to pick between pickups instead of picking above neck pickup.
