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.

Good take mate! It sounds really good. One small comment, you start everything with an upstroke while in general we use to start a group of 8th or 16th notes with a down stroke to make the first beat accentuation more natural. Check this with Ben that is your master now! biggrin.gif
Keep on the good job!

No additional comments on my behalf - regarding what Gabe said, I think it's generally good to be able to master both approaches - I once heard John Petrucci stating that he practices his chops both ways: Starting with a down stroke and then with an up stroke!

Good work man!
