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 carmine! I see you're very active in the REC zone and I congratulate you on your sure footed progress smile.gif This take can be very very good if you will improve your timing - these slips can be felt after 0.27. Try to play with the slowed down backing track and understand where each note goes where in respect to the backing track. After that, another good option will be to play along with the original lesson until you get the vibe and then record with the backing track at the original tempo.

We can discuss more about sync and timing in your mentoring thread!

Good effort Carmine and nice tone you have here too smile.gif

Your hammer on technique is good here, it's just the timing that needs attention. As Cosmin said, after 0:27 the timing goes out. If you listen to the drum beat, on the first beat there is a kick drum. After that first beat, that's when you play the note on the E string each time. If you always wait for that first beat of the bar to occur, you'l have a better idea of how to time that phrase. smile.gif

I like your tone smile.gif ! Such as Cosmin and Ben said, you have a timing problems . Your hammer technique is very good, but I would also recommend practicing at slower pace. The interesting thing about this technique is that you should consider the timing of your left hand (the exact hammer on hit ),as opposed to classical dependence of the right hand picking.

Man! Since I first heard you play you made such a huge progress! Your timing got so much better and you tone is great!
I can also hear that you feel more secure when you are playing! and it's great!
There is a few timing issues starting with the third lick, I would suggest to practice it at a slow tempo using a metronome!
Good job!!!!!!
