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.

Hi Carlos!

Great to see you working hard here!

This lessons seems to be easy but it's not. It's tricky to make it sound tight, clear and clean along the whole take. Your playing is very good, there are no unwanted noises, and all the notes sound clear in the different parts. If I become very strict, I just can comment that there are VERY little timing issues, in some parts where you tend to hurry up a bit the patterns. This is nothing serious, but it's good to make you know it so you put some more focus on this element.

Other than that, this is really good. It's a 9 for me. Congratulations!

It's interesting because you are almost consistently a bit late when there is a position or string switch - yet your technique looks controlled and relaxed.

Typically this type of timing issue is something we see with more tensed/uncontrolled playing.

I would guess you don't need to make any big adjustments here - you are probably just 110% focused on controlling legato (which you succeeded with!) - and just don't give yourself enough time to prepare for the position switches.

It would be interesting to see another take from you when you have had a chance to practice a bit more with this in mind.

You still get a 7 from me since the actual legato playing is great!

Hey there!

First to notice is your proper hand position and mechanics. I have nothing to complain here as notes sound well executed and noise free. I think that lower gain could verify if there is enough strength involved but let's say that's just another level,

Now there we have some timing issues everytime you shift the position and start to play again. These timing slips are quite consistent. You have problems diggin back into time after each change. There are a few slightly missed notes but they do not destroy whole performance that much.
