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 again Ben!

I think that you have even timing and note volume throughout, aside one spot around 0:48 in which MAYBE you lost focus due to allowing your mind to wander biggrin.gif Am I right? biggrin.gif

Well, keep rocking mate and check out the lesson I suggested for your next endeavor in one of the previous takes!

Keep rocking!

Hi Cael,

You are doing a very good job with this one. I notice that your alternate picking is tight and smooth, while your legato still can be smoother. Just check ascending lick starting at 00:19 and your notice that the notes are not going smooth one after the other. This issues can be related to timing but also to the notes duration, that sometimes can be shorter and makes everything sound less smooth.

What does this mean? It means that you have to continue working on your legato technique, so please isolate the legato sections, and practice them and also incorporate some other legato exercises. You can find some more here on left hand lessons: LINK

Keep rocking.

Hey man, this is quite strong. As the others have noted, your only timing slips are during the legato sections. It's harder to keep time during legato so it's not a big issue here, just one to keep an eye on smile.gif

Nothing else to add, keep it up !
