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 !!

Great playing, timing, relaxed picking hand !

As you get more confident with your picking, your picking hand movements will get smaller. Right now, you're keeping them very correct and big and exaggerated which is kind of necessary when teaching yourself to get used to the technique. When you get better and start going faster, those movements will become smaller smile.gif

Hi mate! Thanks for your words! I don't have too much to add here, just adjust the 16th notes in the last part and concentrate on what Ben said about your right hand movement. wink.gif
