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 Cristophe, this is really good guitar playing ! There were only a couple of places where you slightly went out of time like you already said.. but you quickly find your way back again ! smile.gif The good thing is that you have an awareness of the timing so you can correct it and get better and better.

Very solid chord changes.. you've got great potential - keep up the good work ! smile.gif

Great job mate!! This is close to be perfect! The only thing that I note is that in some sections you lose a bit the timing but then you get back to the correct rhythm. Concentrate on getting a more consistent timing and you will have a flawless take!
Congrats my friend! smile.gif
