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.

Hey there smile.gif aside from some details which need a little bit more work (such as the tapping part where the notes need to be played tighter) the take is nicely done! Keep it up mate! I suggest you could slow it down some more and nail things perfectly wink.gif

I think your take is really really good! you have managed to play on time and really accurately and clean, it sounded really good. The tone is appropiate.

I didn't put a 10 because there's a tiny bit still to work on to sound just great like a pro.

I like the tone, and also the way you played. I have in mind that the composition was made with the more technically demanding passages, so in general you nailed it ! Keep rocking..

That is excellent take with great tone. Everything is great, except I would comment on your legato runs and tapping. Timing on those needs to be rock solid (as with everything else), in order to be perfect.

Excellent playing, my friend ! Great tone, great feel... as my comrades say, the more technical bits aren't 100% but when the rest of it is that good, who cares ? wink.gif
