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.

Hello T.. this was a very good effort here. Your timing overall was quite accurate.. the only main things to improve are related to the riffs themselves.

The area around 0:20-0:25 needs attention. This will be a good opportunity to test your rhythm skills even further. Try setting a metronome up at a slightly slower speed than the main lesson and cycle that section until the timing flows more naturally.

On the section starting at 0:30 you can improve these sliding chords too. What you're doing is sliding them back to their starting position and allowing it to be audible. What you want to do is slide the chord up first then pause the sound before playing the starting chord again. You actually get it quite right on the last repetition at 0:38. If you can make the others sound like that last one then you're almost there smile.gif

First of all I think that tone is too harsh for this kind of playing - I would try to find different type of tone - warmer, less treble. Second thing is the precision. I don't see any obvious mistakes different than just a few timming slips and a few missed (in case of synchro) notes. You feel the shuffle and that's awesome smile.gif Try to focus on the moments where You are not 100% familiar with. Good job! smile.gif

Hi mate! Good job on this tricky lesson. I think that the overall lesson needs some more practice to feel more natural and comfortable with the different parts. There are some parts where the problem is more important and that need some isolated practice as Ben marked.
However I think that you are on the right track. Keep on the hard work. wink.gif
