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 this a more confident take. You played the A string twice as well - nice one wink.gif

I still think you could pick with more confidence though.. you have a very light touch.

Your hammer-on and slide licks could be smoother as well but overall this is a worthy 9 - well done!

Hi MisterM,
Now this much better in the rhythmic aspect, only I give you a tip: hitting the strings with your right hand to give more beat, the "death" notes create rhythm in the silences of music.
More feeling in your playing.
Gracias amigo!

Hi MisterM, congrats on your progress!

The first thing that I note on this one is that your tone is much more enjoyable and fits better than your previous take. This is also helped by the fact that you manage dynamics with more feeling and connection with the backing track.

The only thing that I note you could improve are the double string hammer on and pull offs (those Hendrix style) which aren't totally consistent and clear.

Other than that, this is a good take, keep on the good job!

Good one! smile.gif There are some spots where You sound not natural - especially those where You repeat the same note and use this ornament - sort of hammer on pre-note. In Javiers lesson connection between both notes is smoother. He makes notes come one after another with that softness between. You at the moment create a sterile separation that takes a bit of the flavour. Try to see what's going on with Your hand. Maybe You release the finger too fast or You mute with Your right hand at thje spot where notes should ring.

I was speaking of 0:40 for example

Anyway very good job on the tone - nice and sensitive touch on the fingerpicking chords part. A bit too sharp while picking
