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.

Well done Dieter, this is much more like it ! You've got the rhythm side covered much better now smile.gif

Also nice to see you get those natural harmonics too.

There was some hesitation in some places and the high E & B strings sounded a bit out of tune but overall this was a big improvement ! cool.gif

Good job! All this work we did was totally worth it!!!! I can see a huge difference! Keep it up!
I would suggest to keep practicing this lesson because as Ben said there are still some problems with a few places like 0:42-0:45
Keep working on it and it will sound perfect:)

Hey mate! I'm amazed of your progress! I still remember the big timing issues that your first takes had, and now, after a lot of hard work, you are playing the riffs of this one with the correct rhythm. Congrats mate! You still have to continue practicing this one to master the harmonics and the idea at 00:42. After that you will have to pick stronger with your right hand and play the overall lesson with a groovier feel.
Congrats again for all this great and hard work! smile.gif
