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.

Howdy mate! Great improvements!

I think it's obvious that you have worked a lot on this, in order to make it sound as close as possible to Gabe's recording. What I notice is that your timing is good, you play clean and the dynamics are in place - I can definitely hear each note!

What would need more focus:

- Gabe vibrates some of the notes - now that you can play the entire lesson, focus in learning where the vibrated notes are and execute them as he does
- The take sounds a bit mechanical - this is a superior step in your guitar playing journey - the interpretation smile.gif You need to make this piece flow, but it will come with experience. It's something which is only felt, not learned from the books.

8 is a grade that you have fairly earned mate! My congratulations to you!

Hi mate. I'm impressed, I re-checked my comments in your previous take and I can notice that you worked on each thing that I suggested and the results are fantastic. There is still room to improvements as Cosmin detailed it very well but you moved from 6 to 8 in a very short time.

Congratulations!! Keep on the good job. smile.gif
