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.

Hi mate, I think that this take is getting better but there is still work to do to master it. Your timing is much better, but the faster parts has muted notes or notes that don't sound. You should isolate this sections and practice them as a loop over metronome.

I continue insisting that you are moving too much your fingers instead of starting the motion from your wrist when you do alternate picking.

Hey amigo!

Gabe pointed out a good thing - your timing and I will point out another - your articulation skills have greatly improved, but still, you need to take care of that fast section which is blurry at the moment!

Keep practicing this one at a slow pace until you get that fast section down clean, ok?

I'm a big fan of sircel picking and I do a lot of it myself but usually with high playing speeds. In this kind of medium speed range playing with only wrist seems to be more stable - it also helps in case of timming. You just need to fit the width of wrist movement to get regular, constant machine-like hand working. First half sound pretty descent but then, later there are some flaws, like making a too long slide and missing the note smile.gif Also You might like to try to push more of Your left hand to get better angle with the neck when You play something fast on the first string. For now Your hand looks very "bluesy grab-like" smile.gif It's not bad thing but might give You some trouble.
