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.

That's great, man! I love the sound of the guitar! smile.gif
I have one suggestion, mate. This is a general one that will give a lot of groove to all your funky rhythmic stuff: keep your right hand relaxed when strumming those funky chords and try to approach them with a loose wrist - this work great for me, at least smile.gif . Try it and let me know what you think about it smile.gif

Hi Romko! I think that you have chosen a very interesting lesson that will help you to improve your rhythm abilities. Your right hand looks a bit rigid while you play the different parts, you should try to liberate and relax it more, from your wrist but also a bit from your elbow. I know that this can be tricky, since you are still not comfortable with the licks, but I recommend you to work first on the different parts as a loop trying and maybe at slower tempo and give it more groove and dynamics, also make each note sound clear.

In other words, you've already learnt the parts, now it's time to polish everything. Keep on the good job!

Hey mate,

Not too much too add here aside from what the guys said - the basic idea is that you need more slow practicing in order to be able to naturally execute the piece and be able to groove and have a steady rhythm. We are usually tense when our body feels unsure of something it must do smile.gif

Keep rocking mate!
