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 7.5 or higher.

Hi Carmine, nice to see a take of the Quo lesson. Changing between chords is probably the main issue here, as you probably feel like you have to mentally calculate where your hand is going next and this can slow you down. This stuff gets better over time only by doing it but it's also easier to move between chords when you're more confident with a piece, especially if you've spent more time with it. smile.gif

I see a very big improvement in your playing! You did a very good job!
Timing and sound were good!
The only problem is when you are changing chords it seems like you need a minute to think smile.gif
I will create a new assignment for you that will help you with this issue very fast!

Hi Carmine, your timing is this one is good but comparing with the original take I can note a difference in the groove. Sinisa is altering between one string with palm muting and the whole power chord played with a down stroke. Try to incorporate that groove and add some drive to get a closer tone.

Good take! Nice sound and timing! You are getting better everyday!
The main problem is when you are changing chords! It will take some practice but once you will get it you will keep it forever! smile.gif
