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! It's great to see you working hard. I can note how this lesson is slowly shaping your rhythm technique. I compared your right hand movement with the take 1 and it's awesome to see that it looks more consistent and comfortable, but it can be even more relaxed. The faster figures aren't tight yet so I would isolate those little patterns and practice as a loop over metronome. I also noted that you tone is more defined now, keep on experimenting with it.

Hey mate,

Nothing else to add aside Gabi's comments - there is definitely improvement shown here, but still - you need to take some more times on the faster bits and get them in good timing and tightness.

Keep rocking!

Very good take! Your hard work does give results smile.gif Whole take is much tighter than the very first ones. Now good amount of gain as well - it gives good separation and a reference image of Your playing precision. Timming sit's very well as well. I like Your tone and backing set-up. I think You could make the guitar louder about 2 dB. It's almost perfect smile.gif
