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!

I liked this lesson a lot some time ago when I used it to warm up, so it's nice to see it in the REC Zone! I think you can take a bit off the gain, if you ask me and around 0:37 there's a slight hesitation. As I said before, you are not having any trouble with these lessons, so I would definitely throw the glove and ask you if you would be willing to tackle this one:

Hi again Cael!

This lessons shows a stronger technique from you. It's weird but you are not having the issue that I marked on the easier one, so maybe it's something related to slow tempos. This one is sounding consistent most of the time, except in the last parts where I notice that the licks aren't completely tight.

As Cosmin said, you are ready for a more advanced lesson, but keep this one as a part of your training/warming up.

Keep on the good job!

Excellent take. Your hand coordination is faultless here. As Gabriel noted, your timing is a lot stronger during this quicker lesson. In fact, I think it's easier for most people to keep legato in time when the tempo is faster.

I notice that in some places you start the first note of the next shape a little bit too early but that's my only criticism. Well done.
