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

Here it is again. Still not 100% but I hope it is an improvement. I think there's an improvement in the tone also and I appreciate the feedback on that.

Well done mate! It's great to compare both takes and notice big improvements! Your tone is very good now, it sound balanced and powerful. Your timing is better in most of the lesson but there are still some parts where you miss it a bit (for example at 00:41).
Keep on practising this one! Congrats on the good job.

Hello Jon! As the guys said, the improvement is obvious - I have nothing else to add, but my congratulations for being able to make the improvements so fast.

Focus on the bits that still require your attention and this take can be a 10, if you aim for that - I'd do it just to make things perfect smile.gif
