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.

Hey Maarten!

You did a good job overall here, but please pay a little bit more attention to the triplets, as they could be a little more precise wink.gif

It's a 9 from me!

Hi Davidian! Congrats on this take! As Cosmin said, the only problem appears when you play triplet. There, your playing isn't tight, then when you play 8th and 16th notes everything sounds perfect. Keep on rocking!

Very nice take mate! AS guys mentioned. Triplets are the main issue here. Also thee is a little timming issue when You switch to 16th notes for exchange with 8th notes - like 01:06. Aside form this Your take is pretty nice. Well done!
