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.

Hey again man smile.gif

This time, you exaggerated some bends and the timing on the trill part was a bit shaky. You know there is an old story in martial arts:

A student went to his sensei and asked how long it's gonna take until he masters the sword if he trains hard and sensei said - 'About 10 years...' The student was not pleased and said 'What if I train even harder?!' Sensei said - 'About 15 years..' the student, exasperated, asked 'What if I train all day??' Sensei said 'Your entire lifetime!'

I see a resemblance here smile.gif Man, let time help you - you are trying too hard to have this perfect NOW. Give it some more time - why don't you try to post this one next month - but in the mean time, practice slowly and get each bend perfect and that trill as well? All at a slow speed - do we have a deal?

Wise words by my friend Cosmin! You already know the things that you should work on this one. Give you some time, start working other lessons and then get back to this one. I'm sure that you'll be ready to master it soon.
