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!

This take sounds promising as well, but there is something which I must point out:

You need to take some time to slow things down and work on your picking for this lesson - your hands sound slightly out of synch and they seem to be slacking behind the rhythm - imperceptibly almost, but I can feel them.

This means you need to take some time to practice the lesson more with the slower backing tracks, because otherwise it's obvious that you know what you have to play smile.gif

Then slowly raise the tempo until you reach the original one and maybe even record over the original take, done by Muris, in order to observe the eventual differences.

Keep rocking!

Hi man, this one is a bit tougher. The shapes are not quite as obvious to us guitarists ! smile.gif

As Cosmin pointed out, your timing varies a bit during the take. Most noticeably at 0:23, 0:27 and 0:32. You're a little ahead of the beat there.

A few little places where the hand co ordination is slightly out. I think you just need to be more comfortable with the passages that you're playing so you can relax and let the timing be natural.

Hi again Nava! This one is more musical so it's a good first step regarding the things that I commented in the previous take. I think that the guys are right about timing, it's the main thing to fix on this one and the best way to do it is practicing it over the original lesson.

About technique, I mostly find two things to improve:

Hands Sync: You lost sync when you play the faster sections. It's not something dramatic, but it's happening so you must work on it. This is a good lesson to work on it: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Hand-Synch/

Bending: Sometimes you don't reach the correct pitch, be careful with them and if it's possible incorporate some bending training into you diary practice. Don't miss this lesson: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/String-Bending/

You are going on the right track, but I think that you have to complement your diary practice with some extra lessons to focus on the things that you need to improve. Keep on the hard work!
