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, I can notice some improvements on this one but you still have to focus on the things that we have been commenting on the previous takes. The main thing is timing. You should be able to play tighter each riff over the backing track and I think that isolating the different riffs could be a good idea, to be sure that you are playing it completely adjusted. Using the slower backings and playing it over the main video could also help.

Keep on the hard work! wink.gif

Hey amigo,

I agree with Gabi here... You should be more focused on understanding the timing behind the phrases you are playing. It is not a matter of execution, it is a matter of understanding. Try to count against the original recording and see where each chord falls. Also, look at and listen to the Guitar Pro tab - see the duration of each note and rest - they will tell you where they have to be played.

Keep rocking!

According to some of Your previous takes over other lessons I know You can get very nice timming. I would stand by guys advices about trying to rethink everything that's hidden under "where is the reason of timming issues".

You might consider to try out a few things

- different backing track volume settings
- different drum beats to focus
- picking hand direction and accents
