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 Taka! smile.gif Great to see You here, at the REC zone smile.gif You playing look very confident and this is very important. You take sound really good! I had no huge doubts till the 0:50 and further.

I got only one suggestion - right hand movements - don't stop the hand. Use natural picking direction that' comes from the hand. Make empty movements while breaks. They will help You to keep perfect timming. It's exactly the same as while playing the chords - right hand movement is constant.

This is very important because Your right hand looks like it's not quite sure what direction should it be moved after every break / rest. Try to imagine like there were "ghost notes" between smile.gif Move Your hand but away from the strings smile.gif

Hi Taka!! Good job on this lesson. I like your take! Besides Darius comments I would like to add that you have to practice the connection between different parts where there is a small silence or small timing issues. You have to work on this parts to try to make this changes smoother. I'm talking for example about this parts: 00:13, 00:24, 00:47, 00:58.

Also re-check the first riffs because it's not exactly as I composed it.

That's all, the overal is really good, keep on rocking. wink.gif

Howdy Taka - I think the guys pointed out the important aspects so, take them into account, practice slow and focused so that you may engulf them in your playing and you'll nail this one in no time wink.gif

Keep rocking,
