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.

Yo, nice to see you hammering away at this lesson. Btw, did you steal my jeans ??? laugh.gif

Generally very good. Try not to shorten notes too much, like around 0:12 and 0:14. If you can stay on the notes for a longer duration (with vibrato) ad then shift only when it's time to play the next note then it will sound more efficient and pleasing to the ear smile.gif

The picking co-ordination is also good.. in fact, the only places you seem to have trouble are when you shift from one position to the next with a slide at 0:29 and 0:30 so I would suggest to isolate these areas and work on the finger shifting whilst picking.

Your timing is also very strong - well done !

Well, first things first - congratulations on tackling a difficult piece - coordination is always an important aspect in guitar playing and in any instrument actually. I think you did a good job and as Ben pointed out - I know you are trying to get from one place to another faster by shortening the notes, but that's not so nice biggrin.gif Work on that and on shifting positions in general, in what regards this take. Slow is the way to go mate wink.gif

Keep rocking!

Cosmin
