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 learnt this one very quickly! I think that you are doing a good job with this lesson and that there are just some details to pay attention to make it sound better. This details are:

- Timing: Your timing is not tight in most of the lesson. Concentrate on play those triplets adjusted with the backing.

- Bending: Those bends in the middle of the lesson are out of pitch. Don't pay less attention to bends than tricky passages. Give them the same importance. If you have problems with bending pitch, we must work on it at Gab's Army. (Let me know)

- Sync: Most of the time your hands are synchronized, but I notice sync issues in the second half of the lesson.

That's all! Keep on working on this one.

Hey W.O.L ! Nice to see somebody tearing this one up smile.gif

Gab has already nailed the right observations.. work on the timing of the 16th note triplets. If it helps, try to mentally and physically accent the 1st note of each group of 6. So, in your head you're going 1, 2, 3, 4... and playing 6 notes for each count. I find that technique helps me stay in synch with the beat when I feel like I might be running out of steam.

Gab's correct about the bending too.. even though it's not the focus of the lesson it's always good to get them sounding as good as everything else smile.gif

Hey mate! The guys have already pointed out the important things, so just slow the track down a bit and incorporate their advices for the ultimate result and also, have patience with yourself, ok?

Keep rocking!
