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.

Howdy mate!

Great to see this one down in the REC Zone smile.gif Now, I think that your legato technique in itself is heatlhy and the notes sound even in terms of volume and timing. The only issue, appears when you are shifting the positions and the timing is slightly shaky. I suggest you to take some more time and practice this one at a slow tempo, focusing especially on landing dead on the beat when practicing the shifts. The timing issues are most visible after 0:19 onward almost with every shift.

All the best and keep rocking!

Excellent work, my friend. Your tone is very consistent.

This lesson is quite difficult because of the position shifts... it can easily throw out your timing but I think you performed the shifts very well.

The only timing issues I heard were a tendency to slightly rush, mainly during the first part but that's all smile.gif

Hi friend! Good job with this lesson!

I agree with Ben and Cosmin about the main thing to work and improve on this one: position shifting and timing. The first thing generates the second problem so I recommend you to work on smaller sections in order to be used to the shifts, to make them smooth and to be able to keep timing tight.

Other than that, this lesson is really close, keep working with our feedback in mind.
