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.

I like Your very confident playing. All the movements are under control and prepaied for the precise recording. Overall great work and IMHO ready to pass. I've only noticed veeery tiny timming issues but those were not affecting the image of whole lesson smile.gif Also...i think there those 5th's from 0:36 are a little out of tune. Anyway good work! smile.gif

Hello there!

I think Darius has pointed out everything important, so I would like to add the little vibrato at 0:09-0:10 - it's a bit out of pitch.

Otherwise, the job is well done!

Keep rocking mate!

Hi mate! Nice take! I think that Darius and Cosmin summarized the things that you have to improve to take this one to a top level. I notice that the firs phrases has timing issues and that the overall is not 100% confident, so keep on playing this one! you are on the right path!
