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 friend!

I've first found this one at our mentoring thread so I commented it there. This means that you already know my thoughts about your playing on this one. Your overall playing is really good, you get a consistent tone and good dynamics. The problem starts when you reach the single note rhythm where you have notable timing issues that keep happening until the end of the take.

So please pay attention to this issue during the next days of practice and share a new take when you feel it's fixed.

Hey man your tone and strumming / picking technique are both really good.

The main problem with your take is timing. You go in front of the beat quite often, especially during the single note riffs as Gabriel mentioned. But even before that, ad after, there are notable timing issues so if you can work on them then you'll be a very strong rhythm player.

Left hand chord work was also strong.

Hi there!

Watched original lesson video and your take. Basiclly there is not much to complain - nice tone match and most of the take was played pretty clean. The only problem here is the timming. You play slightly too fast (in front of the beat) but those slow parts are performed withing the limits of tolerance (in a good meaning). Fast parts needs some more work. Try to increase wrist angle. At some points I think you could use more wrist than the forearm.
