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 mate! Glad to see you working hard for the REC zone again smile.gif

Your timing is pretty ok on this one, but what I notice is the fact that due to large movements of the right hand, involving the thumb (you should focus on picking from the wrist) you are struggling to keep the pace with the whole track. Most likely this is the cause for some notes which sound blurry/almost missed in the context.

Please focus on reducing the hand movement and practice this at a slow speed so that you will incorporate this habit in your playing.

Keep rocking,

Hi mate, there has been a big improvement on this lesson. Your timing is better and your overall playing more precise. There are still timing issues in the fast riffs (like the one at the beginning) but then you feel comfortable with the rhythm. The next to things to improve which are connected are:

- The clarity of your palm muting riffs.
- Your tone.

I think that these should be the next goals. Keep on the hard work! wink.gif

Timming is getting much tighter. As for Your thumb movement You have decide on Your own. Cosmin says it's something wrong but I do use this technique myself and it works for me so try both and decide when You feel Your playing is more precise. Anywat
I don't see any obvious mistakes here. Lack a bit of precision but I think You got the pass...at least for me smile.gif
