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 my friend, it's great to see you back and an honour to see you playing my lesson. My only criticism is based on the timing of your phrases. At the moment, you're still struggling to place the licks correctly over the backing track so in some places the phrases sound too rushed. That's my only criticism though, your skills are fine, just need to tighten up those phrases ! smile.gif

Hey coffeeman! That's what a call tasty playing! Your tone and your expression are very enjoyable in this one. You did a very good job. I have to agree with Ben about the timing of some phrases and licks, so concentrate on adjusting these things to get a top level take.
Keep on rocking. smile.gif

You did a good job! I agree with Ben and your timing needs some improvement! I would suggest playing along with Ben for a while so you will know exactly where he puts the licks! I know you can make this lesson to sound perfect it will just take some time! I like your tone and vibrato!
Overall good job!
