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 Vince!! Congrats on your first REC take!! smile.gif

I have to say that this take is very good. I can note that you have been working on this one very hard and the results are totally positive. The notes sounds loud and clear and this means that your picking hand is strong and consistent. I only note some very little timing issues in the first 8th notes (sometimes you play a bit before the beat), and also in the last part that combines 16th notes with 8th notes, in which sometimes the transition is not totally precise.

I recommend you to use our foot or head to follow the tempo while you play this one in order to feel the groove and go tighter with the backing track's drum groove. It will help you to feel the groove instead of thinking on it while you play.

So, I hope that this is the first of many REC takes from you. You have a 9!

Keep on rocking.

Hey amigo!

We have been discussing this one in your mentoring program and I think it came out like this pretty fast - 3 or 4 tries? I think so, but anyway, a very important aspect here, is that you have started to make BIG improvements to your playing and once you began tackling things which are closer to your current level, results appeared almost immediately smile.gif

Let's keep the pace steady and you'll surely evolve faster than you first thought wink.gif

All the best and keep rocking!

Wow I've got no issues with that at all.. it's great smile.gif

I can't really hear any timing issues there, maybe I'm going old and crazy ?

Those 8th note triplets in the middle section are among the most accurate I've ever heard them being played - great job !
