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.

Excellent.. really strong playing ! Good job on learning by ear too wink.gif

The only thing that could make it any better would be to tighten those licks up from 0:44 onwards.. I think the left hand is slightly out of synch with the 6th note pulse but apart from that, it's alllll good cool.gif

Great take man!! You learnt if perfectly by ear! Good job! You have to concentrate a bit on timing to get a tighter playing, I refer to the whole take but the most serious part is the last one. wink.gif But don't worry too much, it's a very good take!

Wow, that is an awesome take well done! smile.gif Very precise, with good tone. I agree with Ben, I think you could tighten up second part a bit, there is some timing delays there, also make sure next time that low E string is in tune, those powerchords sound worse then they should.
