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.

Original lesson: Odd Grooves by Muris Varajic

Really like the feel of this piece :) Think I had to much distortion and delay, hope I did it justice.Sorry about backing track not being loud enough

Hey Tom!

This is not bad at all man - I think you nailed the tricky timing here - this lesson is all about being able to count and play accordingly smile.gif

Focus a bit more on making all the notes sound even - maybe it's the volume difference, but I feel that some notes a re a bit buried in the mix.

Keep rocking,

Cosmin

Hi mate! As Cosmin said, you play this one very tight. I would re-work your tone to make it closer to the lesson and to focus on dynamics which is another great thing that Muris got in the main video.

Keep on rocking.

+1 point from me for the unusual timming challenge You made nicely smile.gif I think we could work a bit on Your right hand pick grab. For me it looks a bit unstable but I might be wrong. Just would like to confirm smile.gif

You did good job with this lesson but I'm not sure about some details. It's good to make a few pre-takes to find out the solo to backing track volume ratio. Also...a little advice. With this angle Your right hand is a bit hidden (the part with a pick). If You could change it in nest take we could see what is exactly happening there and give You more detailed feedback smile.gif
