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 man! Very pleasant to see Your take over my lesson. I'm very glad with the level of your performance smile.gif Basicly there are onlytwo things to fix:

1. Timming - all take is a bit in front of the beat (You play to early comparing to the drums). Are You sure there wasn't something wrong with the solo / backing track sync on mixdown? Maybe one of those was moved a bit while mixing - this timming issues sounds very constant.

2. 0:58 in this lick it's not a major scale - it's mixolydian - F instead of F# You played there. Aside from those I see no obvious mistakes. Very well prepared lesson. Thank You. Please fix those 2 issues and I think You could made it for 10 smile.gif

Hi mate! I like the intensity of your picking, you are getting a very good tone thanks to it. Regarding your playing, I think that Darius marked the details to improve on this take to be a perfect one.

Keep on the good job! Cheers.

Hey man! I nothing else to observe other than what the guys have said, but I do want to tell you that I like the heaviness of the picking. I can feel a lot of power there! Focus on what Darius observed, fix it and you are clearly in for the 10! smile.gif

Keep rocking!
