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.

Original lesson: Jumping Harmonies by Diego Budicin

So timing feels better but I know it's not 100% Diego's time seems to start on the off beats. I did get a little bit of hybrid picking but Diego uses it more frequently and fluently. This is such a lesson!

Hi Jim this is a lot better this time around. You're more relaxed and the phrases flow much easier.

You've still got a timing issue with that bit at 0:10 and 0:18, not sure what's going on there.

There's a bend later in the lesson which is too sharp but apart from those 2 issues you're sounding loads better here, man. Nice work smile.gif

Hi Jim! Good job with this one!

The overall lesson sounds more polished now and you look more comfortable with the different sections. There is still room for details but this is a very good take.

One thing that I would add is that your tone could be better on this one. I notice that it is lacking some definition and presence so some little EQ adjustments could make this one sound better.

Keep on rocking!

Good work Jim! This take is clearly much better smile.gif Most of the time You keep good timming. There is one bend that crosses correct bitch and just a few spots were open strings should be muted slightly better. I would suggest to brighten Your tone a bit - we loose some aspect of picking precision to be able to correctly judge this smile.gif
