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 Lexman! Nice to know that you are enjoying this lesson. I think that you are really close to play it perfectly. The only detail that I note is that you have very little timing issues in some sections around 00:26, 00:48 and 1:06. Each part consist of different things (single note melody, power chords, octave chords), so it's a general issue. Focus on it and keep on rocking

Hi Lexman,

YEAH, a good one!!

As my colleagues already said: Focus on timing!
A good start could be:
Listen to the HiHat & the bass because they are playing 8th notes too. These instruments are a good guide line for you. Try to connect more to these and you're on the right way! ;-)

Hey mate! As my comrades have pointed out, timing is indeed the thing to focus on in the case of this lesson. It is not something which sounds very out of place, but it's all about that tightness in perfectly syncing with the drums smile.gif

Try to play and record against the original recording to get the feeling of the track better smile.gif Deal? If you want some more recommendations on how to improve your timing, please PM me!
