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.

Original lesson: Hard Rock Riffing by Sinisa Cekic

A lesson I've learn while working (hard) on Ben Bushido Tasks. Great lesson, I love to play it. Thank you Sinisa !

Great shot ! The timing is good, although I have little criticism on the riffing, which could have been more in the groove, but I believe it's only a matter of time and a little more relaxed playing. A very strong 9.... what a hell...10 !! biggrin.gif

Hey man! This is very good! I agree with Sinisa about the groove and about the fact that a little more focus and practice will eventually get you in the groove smile.gif

Playing shuffle/ swing is not such an easy task (unless you are of African-American descent and you can play anything you want, while being great at it biggrin.gif) - be more consistent in feeling that specific pulse man and you'll get it in your system for certain smile.gif

This is a very good take mate! I also think that your timing and groove should be tighter but the overall really good. The faster part needs to sound tighter and the other parts need to be more groovy. If you fix it you will have a perfect take. It's a 9 for me! smile.gif

Nothing to add. You did a great job - cool timing and technique. As the guys says - the groove is all you need.

Yeah I loved your interpretations of this lesson (great composition, by the way, Sinisa !)

The main things I noticed were the note definition sometimes got lost on those chords (the C and the D) and the Ritchie Blackmore style note at 0:27 needs to be more staccato. Really dig into it but deaden the note right after striking to get that effect ! smile.gif
