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.

Hey mate!

Welcome back with this one smile.gif

I think there's a remarkable difference between the two takes, for which I will congratulate you sincerely wink.gif

Now, this take is ALMOST there, but in my opinion, you should practice against the slow backing tracks a little more, as there's still a feeling of uncertainty in the playing, like it drags behind somehow, in respect to the track.

It's almost imperceptible and since I haven't gotten any sleep yet after last night's concert, I might be hearing a little unwell, but I sense that it's there. Not to worry tho, as it's nothing that slow practicing and becoming more and more conscious about the track's pulse, can't fix.

Keep rocking!

Hi again! As Cosmin said, the improvement between this take and the previous one is awesome! Now you are playing ALL the notes from the arpeggios, including the last pull of of each one.

The next step note now is to adjust your timing, mostly when you play strings 2 and 3, where it seems that you go a bit slower and the overall arpeggio sounds sounds maladjusted. Again here, the way to improve it is practicing at slower tempo focusing on playing the licks tight, there is no secret here: just PRACTICE.

Keep on the good job! wink.gif

Hi, a definite improvement over the 1st take. You have included the pull offs wink.gif

The sound is easier to listen to as well, I think you recorded the signal too high on the other video.

The only thing for me was that the pick didn't quite hit all the notes.. a couple of them were missing so it sounded like there was a split second gap in some of the sweeps.

But that was about it. I didn't have any beef with the timing. Keep up the good work !
