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 man! Great to see another take from You! smile.gif I hate to say it but there is still a lot of work to be done. Those alternate runs have a right-left hand sync issues and some notes there are gone are with misplaced timming. You have a nice tone and hearing (pitch) and some god potential but You need to rethink Your right hand mechanics. Maybe wider or stronger movements will help a bit. This hand is unfortunately getting too random in case of timming. I see You're trying to bring some economy in Your movements and this is the good way but when it comes to consistent 8th or 16th notes alternate shapes it looks like the hand lives it's own life. Watching the vid very closely I can see that there are some spots You don't feel confident enough. Of course don't get me wrong - You're not doing this completely wrong. We're just discussing the details comparing the the professional point of view. I'm sure You know what we speak about smile.gif Anyway good job1 smile.gif

Howdy mate!

Darius is right! I suggest you to focus on watching the right hand movements executed by Marcus and try to emulate those as well. After that, take the more technical licks and practice them slowly against a metronome. I'm sure things will change wink.gif

Keep rocking!

Hi friend! Darius gave an excellent feedback. Your playing and tone are very promising. It's time to focus on synchronization between both hands to take your playing to the next level. Isolate the faster AP parts and work on them as a loop over metronome, starting at slower tempo and concentrating on sync.

Keep on the hard work! wink.gif
