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,

This is a very demanding lesson and your are very close. However, I think that you need to slow down a bit your practice to focus on hands sync. The overall doesn't sound clear and the reason why is that you are hands are not going synchronized, mostly when you play with your left hand fingers.

I think that you are not still comfortable with this tempo, and it's not a good idea to practice at a tempo in which you can't play clean and clear so please go to a more comfortable tempo and continue practicing, always being sure that you are playing with both hand in sync.

Keep on the hard work!

Hey Diego!

Your overall playing abilities are really good but now you need to focus on teh hardest part - precision in details. Like Gabriel mentioned - your hands tend to go out of sync and you loose the timing at some points. Of course it's not totally messed up but at this level of playing I'm sure you know that also the demandings increase smile.gif From other aspects I have nothing to complain. Tone is well matched and the mix sounds good as well. Well done!

Hi Diego, this is a strong take but the timing fluctuations let you down here.

I notice that you have a tendency to slightly speed up as you reach the top of each arpeggio, like at 0:05. This may be your fretting hand speeding up of may be caused by the hybrid picking making you rush to keep up with the middle finger / pick combination. When you play this lesson, take notice of your picking hand and see if the use of hybrid picking is forcing your fretting hand to rush to keep up.

Other than that, the tone might be a bit too harsh and you could do with some more vibrato work. Keep it up!
