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.

Cool - you did a good job venturing out of your comfort zone! And yes - this is the place to be btw

I can spot no "ear bleeding" problems here. However overall, you are not quite as tight as Diego. And this type of rhythm work is all about supporting the groove and try to be spot on timing wise.

I think the most important step you can take to fix this, is to relax your right hand more. This is absolutely crucial for skank / funk rhythm guitar.

Since you cannot expect to be able to think about relaxing your right while you are trying to perform - my advice would be to give yourself 5-10 minutes during warmup to play this in super slow motion. While doing so, keep track of your right hand to make sure it's totally loose - basically just 'hanging' there on your forearm - if that makes sense.

Keep it up the great work - you get a 7 from me!

Nice! This is way outside the comfort zone for sure which is what makes it worth doing. Anytime you can play things that are outside your comfort zone, you can bring things with you back in to your comfort zone that you may not have ever played before. So it's a great way to expand yourself as a player. I'd suggest doing it as often as possible. As for this one, you have a really good vibe going on here which is critical to this type of piece. It needs to "feel" groovy!. If it feels to stiff it just doesn't work. You have a great groove going on here. You might loosen your wrist just a bit to give it a bit more wag, but you've got a really good command of the fretting and picking here and you have really good hand synch. Solid 7 from me!!

Hi mate!

I could follow your progress thanks to the mentoring thread and you already know my thoughts about this one. There are many elements improved here if we compare it with the first take that you shared with me.

As I've said in the thread, and Kris also confirmed, the take sounds very good, but there is still room to make your hands go more relaxed. This is not an easy thing because the triads, chords and lines are tricky/fast and the rhythm also demanding. However, relaxing your hands will affect the groove of your take. If possible, please keep this lesson in your diary routine for some more days/weeks.

Keep on the good job!!
