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, it's good to see a take of this lesson. I think you did a good job with most of it but there's some areas that you need to work on.

Your little finger - at the moment it's out of control.

Also, on the descending parts at 1:13, you're moving to the next position to early.

Generally, you've got some good picking and rhythm skills so if you spend some time working on the strength and control of your little finger and try to make your timing a bit tighter you'll make progress ! smile.gif

Hi mate! I'm proud of reading that you like my series. smile.gif
You are close on this one but you still need to continue working on this one since the melodies are note precise and the fast rhythm sections aren't perfect, your right hand doesn't reach the real tempo. I suggest you to use the slower backings and practice until you get the different parts perfect, then increase the tempo.
