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, good to see you in REC again.

You manage to keep up with the timing generally so that aspect of your playing is improving. The guitar was quite badly out of tune so those nice chords at 0:22 didn't come across too well. When you play those descending triads at 0:23, try to keep your fingers fretting the chords because the notes are supposed to ring together, not be fretted separately. smile.gif

Hey Carmine, congrats on your efforts man! You are a banner holder (that dude in the medieval armies who had to stay alive regardless of what happened and hold the banner up to cheer the soldiers)

biggrin.gif I agree with everything that Ben said, timing is good, but you are not yet confident with the piece - you should practice it some more, until you acquire more tightness - you don't make me feel like you mean what you are playing wink.gif YET!

Good take! A few things:
-Your guitar was out of tune it can happen because of the intonation is not set up properly, you have new string or it's just out of tune:)
-Timing was good in the most parts but still need some work!
You are almost there and just need a little more time to get this lesson to sound perfect!
