> Rules

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 mate! Much better! Almost no string noise and the playing is a lot tighter! The only thing I noticed, would be the extra note you played around 0:31 - I think it slipped in there without you noticing it, instead of having a rest there.

You could practice it a bit more, paying attention at that spot as well, but I for one think that this take passes!

Great to see Your nice progress with this lesson. It's much cleaner now. To be honest couldn't find more to complain than Cosmin pointed. Congratulations - Your work wasn't wasted smile.gif

Yes this is much better !

I think the chords at 0:19 could be much clearer, only the lowest notes seems to sound.

But overall a definite improvement.

Hi mate, this is getting better! There is still some room for improvement like at 00:19 and the seconds after that where you lose a bit the timing but you are very close. Well done! smile.gif
