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 Tom!

You are very close with this one smile.gif There are a few notes which are choked, because you still need to spend some time with the slow speed backing tracks. Up until 0:20, everything is in place, but notice how not all the notes ring out from that moment onward smile.gif I think that if you focus on this one, you will get far better results!

Today's take is a T-day thing smile.gif It's means - timming and tuning. I hear some tunning issues and a timming need more focus. I like Your hand sync. Notes are nice and clean. This timming issue depends on a few things. For example - focusing veeery much on the "virtual beats" even to You notes on guitar. Good idea is to try to imagine them first or clap with hands smile.gif From my experience I can say that timming issue with licks like those are usually more a matter of overall experience with metronome. I mean...we can practice with metronome or PRACTICE. The difference is how much You actually focus on the metronome. Recording yourself and replaying it is a best reference smile.gif Again there is not much to complain smile.gif

Hi friend! Good job on this lesson! There is still work to do, mostly regarding timing, and some notes that sounds quieter, but the overall is ok. It is a good decision to practice this lesson with a clean tone because you have to do the taps with more strength. I recommend you to continue playing this one focusing on timing (sometimes you are a bit before the beat).
