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! You are very close to master this lesson. The only thing that I note regarding your playing is that there are some sections that could sound tighter. I'm talking about the first idea which has many notes a bit before the beat, and also the passage around 00:40 which also appears in the end. Another detail is that your guitar seems to be a bit our of tune, maybe just string 2 or 3, please check it.

Hey mate smile.gif I totally agree with Gabe here - you need more time with this lesson to figure out the timing and overall feeling of the piece. Technically you know it but you need to work on the timing and interpretation a bit more wink.gif

Keep rocking,

The guys have given you the right advice already. One thing I can add is try to make the harmonies sound more staccato. You'll notice that there are slight pauses in between some of the notes. To do this just let the palm of your picking hand touch the strings in between the picking. This will mute the sound of the notes. smile.gif
