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.

Original lesson: Time To Gallop by Ben Higgins

For what it's worth, here's the latest. Still a lot of work to do, but it's a fun lesson! Had the usual issues synching the vid and sound. It seems the camera records at one speed and the audio interface records at another. Dunno.....

Hi Taylor, your take is close but has some little timing issues in some moments that should be fixed. I detect this issues at 00:17, 00:33, 00:38, 00:44 and 00:51. My suggestion is to divide this lesson in different sections and work on each one trying to play everything tight.
Your tone seems to be a bit weak and trebly but I'm not sure if the reason is your camera mic or the tone itself, so check it out.

Gabe pointed the timming issues spots and I agree with him about the tone. There is a bit too much harshy treble and You could add a bit od 200 to 500 Hz where the mosts of root notes has their main frequencies. You'll then have more information about what note You play without inscreasing the voulme. Try to focus a bit more on notes that are precisley at points of 1,2,3,4. This could help with the timming.

Howdy Jon!

As Gabe says, you are close with this one and it's just a matter of details - the timing spots that Gabe spotted, which need your attention. Slow is the way to go here, as those subdivisions will be clean and well defined once you get their pulse and they'll also sound good at high speed.

Nothing else to add here mate, keep rocking!
