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 Aki, welcome to GMC ! smile.gif

This is a good first REC entry.

Your overall timing is good, and your tapping technique is great.. it doesn't matter so much if you used different fingers because you made it work.

There was a timing slip up around 0:23 and you didn't play the final arpeggio so I'm going to throw you an 8 but it's still an impressive performance and I hope that we will see a lot more of you here !

Hello Aki! It is a very good first rec attempt! Good job!
Your timing is shaky a little bit and tapping can be done cleaner! I would suggest to practice this lesson at a slow tempo using a metronome! It's is almost perfect so shouldn't take too long!

Hi mate! Welcome to the site! It's great to find a take from you at the REC! You did a great job in this first recording, your tapping technique is very good as well as your timing and tone. You just have to make it sound even cleaner. Try to mute that strings that you are not playing and avoid having two notes sounding at the same time.
