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 Petr!

This is a good take on this rhythm lesson. The take is VERY close to sound totally flawless. There are just two details in which you could focus to adjust even more this one:

- Timing: Your timing is not bad but there are some little moments in which you play a bit "hurried" some parts of a riff. To give you an example, check at this minutes: compare how you play at 00:07 with the same idea at 00:15. The first one is a bit hurried. As you can note, this is really small, but it's happening in many parts. It's the last details to make your playing totally tight.

- Dynamics: Your are accentuating the right notes on this riffs, but I feel that you could mark them even more. The overall feel of your picking is soft while this should sound more aggressive.

That's all by now, you are doing a great job, keep going!

Hey there! you sound seems to be better than the previous take had. It all sounds quite descent - I could capture just a few moments where unwanted strings noise appeared in the background. Timming is close to perfect but there are few spot to fix. I also think you could try to use more strength form the picking hand to make it sound even more tight.

Hi Petr. This is very solid playing. Your hands are very relaxed, which is a good sign.

Your playing is also very clear and the coordination between both hands is tight.

As the guys have said, there are just a few instances where your timing is not 100%. This is something which will be noticeable at slow / medium tempos like this so just try to hone your timing. Everything else is great!
