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.

Hi Carmine !

Congratulations on your first REC - welcome biggrin.gif

This one still needs some work with the timing. The beginning 2 repetitions are ok but the timing goes out from 0:21. After you play those first 2 notes, you need to pause for a bit longer before playing those other notes. Try listening to Bear closely and taking it a small section at a time. Notice how many notes are being playing and how many beats have occurred. There should be 5 notes (2 notes - pause, followed by 3 notes together) for each bar. I hope this helps smile.gif

hey Carmine! Congrats on your first REC mate smile.gif as Ben said, there's a problem with the timing from 0.21 onwards and I would suggest you to listen to Bear's take closely and try to play along with him at first. You will get the timing right after you have tried this smile.gif waiting on the second take, where I can grade 10 wink.gif

You did very well on your first recording!!! I can see some improvements!
I would suggest to practice it a little more at a slow tempo using a metronome and you will get it!
First two licks sounded very good!

Hi Carmine! smile.gif
The problem here is again your timing. I think that you could use the guitar pro file, set it at slower tempo, and practice the lesson over it. Besides that I also think that you should play the notes stronger with your pick.
Keep on working! wink.gif
