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.

Hello, fellow GMC'ers and instructionators !

very nice take man! I see no problems in there. I´d suggest you to practice scales and finger position a little bit more, to get your fingers more relaxed and closer to the fretboard. it will help you so much in your practice.

see you soon!

Great job Alex, I think you're a good example for young guitar players.
Try to keep your left pinky closer to the fretboard, even if you're not using it too much.
The thumb should be behind the neck while you're not bending or doing a vibrato note. Kind of a general rule biggrin.gif
Keep practicing and recording!
