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.

Very very nice man, consistent picking. There were some very small variations in timing, specially in the beginning, but you managed to get it straight as the take progressed. Tone could be a bit more better, each note should sound the same, I think you were picking with slightly less precision in dynamics.

This is a very good take! In some sections you have VERY little timing issues but then you fix it... it so subtle but if you concentrate on that I'm sure that you'll improve it. Well done!

Rhythmically very well balanced, almost every note is in place,maybe subtle problems with timing in some places, but it doesn't affect to final impression . Good Job my friend smile.gif
