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 Carlos!

Great job mate. This lesson is part of the complementary lessons for my Improvisation Course in which we are working at the mentoring program. I have to say that you are doing a killer job at GMC, your energy is very inspiring!

Your take on this lesson is excellent. There is only a pitch issue in the first bend (at 00:03), then everything is flawless. You rocked it!

Please remember to dedicate some time to jam over the backing track, and create your own variations of the licks.

Keep on the great job!

Your technique is good here - and the main thing that catches my ear is that you are playing a bit ahead of the beat.

Listen to Gab's take and you will notice it gives a more relaxed impression. It is almost always better to be slightly behind the beat.

This might seem subtle but has quite an impact on listening experience.

This is something we see quite often at REC - and typically it comes when you hit the record button and start focusing on "avoiding mistakes".

The solution is usually to think less and try to feel more ( ie think about the groove, just rock away) - this does require you to know the lesson very well though.

All in all you have done a good job here and you get an 8 from me.
