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.

Great playing mate! You did a good performance of this lesson. The only thing that could be better are the artificial harmonics which could sound better and tighter. Well done!

Howdy hombre! biggrin.gif I agree with Gabe and Ben and congratulate you for having pulled a great take - those harmonics could be more 'in your face' but hey, it's just a detail wink.gif you'll nail it next time!

You did a great job! Good sound and timing!
The main riff sounded great!
A few things that can be improved!
0:26 You can let notes ring a little longer and play it more legato way
0:37 is a chicken picking technique and it will sound more solid if you'll use your ring finger to play this part
0:54 Not all harmonics sounded clean

You played this lesson very very well and it sounded amazing! But those little fixes stopped me from giving you 10 smile.gif
