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.

Perfect !! biggrin.gif

Like me, you tap with your middle finger which means you're able to still hold a pick with your thumb and 1st finger. Another good thing to do is practice tapping whilst holding a pick (as if you were tapping in a solo for real) to get used to the feel of it.

Very well played ! cool.gif

Very good take!! great timing, great technique. Ben's advice is very good so you can have the feel of the pick and later on you can later on start mixing techniques,

Myself I prefer the tone a bit sharper, but that's just personal taste, if you like the round sound of it, that's up to you,

Flawless!!! Haha! Congratz mate!

Check this out, you know, you can hold your pick between your thumb and the upper part of the guitar neck biggrin.gif that way you have the supoort of the hand given by the thumb anchored on the neck and not 3, but 4 fingers available to fiddle around with biggrin.gif Straight ten from me!

Two words. NAILED IT. smile.gif Some great points brought up by the other guys as well. The more tips you can absorb the better. I can hear the discipline and practice in your playing. It's precise and deliberate and you can tell you know the piece back and forth. Your brain has to track just ahead of what you are playing so you know where you are going next and keeping this even is often tough. Very nice job on keeping the pace and not rushing/lagging.

This is very good. I think you made a lot of effort it keeping time with this one. The only problem is you feel a bit tensed up, but this will go away as you give yourself some time to settle this in your muscle memory. I'm giving it a 10, cause I can see that it will be perfect one it's settled.
