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.

Original lesson: Surfing With Satriani by Zsolt Galambos

A great tune. I made a lot of progress on this.

Dude you are decided to prosper, obviously biggrin.gif ! A very good attempt. You didn't played from originally D tonality and automatically got a lower grade cool.gif ! I like the dynamics,although the recording is a bit poorer and I can't get the right impression, but I think the timing and palm muting meet some of my standards,so generally this is a great one !

Nice attitude man! I like it! The only thing which I would add aside from what Sinisa observed, would be a little more definition to the muting, which would make this take even better!

Hi mate! You are really doing a great progress on this one! You are very close. The down strokes with palm muting sound good! Great timing and sound! The bending at 00:21 gave you a problem, so practice that part. There is also a little tuning problem in this recording, check out your tuning or your strings (maybe you have too old strings). That's all, it's a good take, keep on working hard!

Hi! Very well played! It sounded to me that your guitar was out of tune and it did lower the whole impression of your performance!
Timing and sound were pretty good but I would agree with Sinisa about your playing!
Good take tho!
