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.

Hello my friend.. good to see you again ! smile.gif

I'm glad you chose this lesson because it's got some really great riffs to learn.

At the moment, you have a tendency to rush in front of the beat.. in other words, you're playing a bit too fast wink.gif

The other thing I noticed is that sometimes you're not managing to pick every note in some of the chords like the part from 0:43-0:46.

If you can improve these two areas, then your guitar playing will improve as a whole smile.gif

Howdy mate! Indeed, timing is the essential thing to focus on in this situation - practice at a slower tempo before re-recording this lesson and try to sync with the drum groove for best results.

Very nice take! I can see that you spent sometime practicing this lesson! And you did very well!
Your timing is the main issue! Practice this lesson using a metronome at a slow tempo and it will sound perfect in no time!

Hi mate! This is a good take but it still needs some more practice to master it perfectly. You have to concentrate on timing as the other instructors said to improve your rhythm guitar technique. wink.gif

Hi my friend, and thanks for choosing my lesson :-)
Your take is not bad at all, but as the others mentioned you have to work a bit on your timing. Really try to focus on staying with the beat, if you have problems to do so at the normal tempo then lower the speed and practice at a tempo that is more comfortable for you.
Aside from this: Keep rocking!
