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 Patrik, this was a storming rendition and even better than your previous one, even though it was faster this time !

You took my advice about moving the chords around, I can hear the improvements. smile.gif

The right hand is really tightened up on this. Good work.

Some of the earlier parts are a bit in front of the beat so try and watch out for that effect because it's very noticeable. Also, you're missing the upstrokes on the F and G# chords at 0:09 and 0:10 and the second time around too.

All round great performance !

Hey Patrick! Good one man! It got better at a higher speed, as Ben noticed wink.gif My suggestion would be to practice slower a bit more, to obtain better timing in the spots where you were a bit off (Ben has spotted them for ya)

keep on rocking!

Hi Patrick! As Ben and Cosmin said, you still need to adjust this one to play it tighter with the drums. So the suggestion is to practice it using the slower tempo backing paying attention to your timing. wink.gif

Good performance mate! In the beginning there are some small sections a bit out of time but then you adjust your playing with the backing much better. You still need to be even tighter but you are very close. Keep on practicing as Cosmin suggested. wink.gif
