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 mate. You are doing a big effort on this one but there is a big problem with timing. You are not getting the groove on this one. The first riffs is closer but everything starts to loose tightness and in some parts that you are definitely not going with the drums. It's a tricky lesson if you are not used to difficult note values. My suggestion is to practice this one divided in the different riffs and play it over Alex guitar or using the Guitar pro file.

This take is better! You didn't loos the beat and were pretty close following the backing track!
Gabriel has a good advice! I can suggest breaking it into parts and play along with my guitar!
The first riff was pretty good except of the ending! Try to focus on the second part now!

It is obvious that you need more patience! You got a riffing, it just remain to practice in a slower pace ! Above tips are valuable, divide song into parts, it is the best way to finish the whole song in a short time. Keep practicing !

Guten Abend, Dieter !

It's improving for sure but it still needs a lot of work before it would be near a pass.

Gab and Alex's advice is probably the best to help you see where you're getting left behind or if you're playing in front of the beat. In most cases I would say that you're getting slightly behind the beat so use Alex's lines to pace yourself with. smile.gif
