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.

There is still some work with this one to make it have descent timming. It sounds a bit like the pick is slipping. Maybe try to make wider movements and increase the pressure on the pick. Also...Your doing pretty well with Your new tones smile.gif

As Darius said, you still need to practice this one. It is not sounding tight as this technique requires, and you hand gets tired in the second half and the sound becomes noisy, the note disappear and I hear louder the sound of the pick rasping the string.
Keep on working on this one.
