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.

Very nice to see Your take over my lesson smile.gif

Overall performance is nice but it misses just a little tiny bit to pass smile.gif

There are a few moments that You can easily detect on Your own - precision issues and timming slips comparing to backing track.
This lesson contains a lot of details - hidden under vibrato speed and rate, notes lenght, different touch do keep wide dynamics range.
Take a close look at the very first parts to see what exactly happens - You missed some palm muting moments and the beginnign should be played very very softly.

You can also tweak the tapped harmonics.

One of very important things in this lesson is a picking strength and it's direction. Take a look at the final arpeggio. It should be played with downpicking only - based on the way we usually play arpeggios while playing backing guitar.

Please review those things because they're the most important part in this lesson. smile.gif

Thank You for the take smile.gif You got the sketch, now let's work on the details wink.gif

Hi Beat! Even knowing all those details that Darius marked I can say that your take sounds warm and enjoyable. There are obvious sections to adjust but there is some good feeling in your playing that makes this a nice to hear take.

Work on the things that Darius marked but keep on that nice energy. wink.gif

Hey Beat!

As Darius is the grand master on this one, I would say he has pointed out all the imporant details - keep the good vibe but improve those aspects he mentioned and you will have an extraordinary take!
