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 Tom! Great to find this take here! I could follow the evolution of this one at my mentoring program and it's great to see how you can play this one at tempo and with a good timing. There are one or two notes that sound muted but the overall sound clean and clear.

The main thing to do now is to continue playing this one every day to feel more comfortable, and be able to play the pull off with more strength and with your body and arms more relaxed while you play.

Ok, I appeared here just to grade since we are talking about this one at Gab's Army but I couldn't stop giving some more feedback. biggrin.gif

You are being serious and very dedicated with your practice, keep on the great job!

Cheers!

Hi, I don't have much to add apart from Gab's suggestions. Developing legato does take time so you will find yourself needing to constantly correct issues like note velocity, where some are too quiet or don't sound properly, and timing.

During this stage you will put in a lot more physical effort due to concentration but you will loosen up and relax. You actually seem pretty relaxed anyway.

Sliding is a difficult technique to learn, especially sliding whilst maintaining timing. You're doing well, you're getting there. smile.gif

Hey mate,

I agree with the guys on this one and all I can add is that you need to practice it until it feels natural to play. Focus on the evenness of the notes - by that, I mean that all the notes have to be equal in terms of volume as some of them are a bit muffled at this point.

Keep rocking!

Cosmin
