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.

Love it!

Your timing is excellent here. It is a tad different than Fayeed's, but not in a bad way.

I would say he is consistently on / slightly behind the beat - whereas you go back and forth more vividly in a very natural way.

The only part that drags down your grade are the faster runs towards the end that have some missed notes and need to be played 'like you mean em'.

You get an 8 from me, very well done!! 👊

Impressive work! I can feel the funky vibe coming off the track. A track like this does not work at all if played in a stiff way. The good news is that your playing is not stiff at all, it's fluid and funky as it should be!

I can see huge progress in your playing. It was not that long ago that I could tell you were struggling to make things feel alive and not stiff. You've worked through that clearly. This feels like a song that you could have written yourself. Played with confidence and feeling. Practice pays off and you have clearly been practicing!

Well done! Solid 8.

Todd

Hey there!

This is a piece of really cool playing and at the same time - difficult to reproduce. I like the tone and your jazz/fusion related smoothnes of playing. In the faster parts you loose some notes or hand sync but that's something you are already familiar with. There is of course a lot of good we could write about the take but much of it would be repeating things you know so let's just point out what can be captured from a listener perspective.

1. The very little amount of delay is still making more mess than good.

2. There is not enough tonal separation between open notes and ghost notes

3. I would go for more attack/slaping in the gost notes

4. There is too much of sliding noise and some kind of cracking that makes ghost notes disappear in the mess. One is easy to spot becasue it is your left hand making unnecessary movement along string in breaks. Second doul be just guessing that some finger hit can case string to hit the fret while it's muted or maybe it hits the cover of nexk pickup..I'm not sure but there is some crackign that does not sound like a ghost note.

I hope you still realise how many good there is in your take, but the thigns about I would really go for rechecking.
