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.

You have the right feeling for playing funk, nice tone(maybe it's a little bit too dark, but it's cool), nice timing.In my opinion this song needs a little bit of laid-back feel, be patient with the drums, because some notes are played before the beat.Good job, can't wait to hear more from you smile.gif

Hey man smile.gif

As Marius spotted, your pulse/groove should be your focus in this lesson - try to emulate the original recording by playing over it and seeing that you get as close as possible to it as an overall feeling, ok?

You can even record against it and then listen in order to spot the differences smile.gif

Keep rocking!

Hi mate, good job! I can see a big improvement comparing this take with the previous one. You are now following the groove with your right hand and that makes you play tighter with the drums. As the other instructors said, there is still more room to improve in this area, but the cool thing is that you are going on the right track. Keep on the hard work!
