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 Jeff!

Some important things:

- When providing vids for REC, it is important to try to make both hands visible so we can give precise feedback regarding your technique and overall playing.
- We can't grade takes at slower tempos here but we can give you some feedback! wink.gif



This is a very good take. Your playing is very consistent, and your overall technique very promising! From what I can hear, your hands are in sync most of the time and your timing is also very good in most parts. There are only a two parts that need some attention:

- The first section still could sound smoother, and mostly the last notes (from 00:07 to 00:09).
- The part that goes from 00:21 to 00:23 is played with a different rhythm here. Check it out!

Other than that, this is very good, you are ready to increase tempo!

Welcome Jeff - it's awesome to see your first REC submission!! 🤗

This sounds very promising!

If your right hand (we can't see it) is as relaxed as your left hand you are def doing good here 👌

I can also sense your timing is a little bit shaky around 00:37 when the backing track isn't really there to support the pulse. I want to encourage you to always tap your foot with the beat, it will become you #1 support for any tricky passage!

Keep up - I hope to see the up tempo version from you 👊

Hey there !

Cool choice of lesson. It is quite difficult. As been said - we can't grade lessons at slower tempo but we can still give some tips.

First would be to deliver as accurate (for us to see what's happening) video and audio as possible. These days it is easy to get very cheap audio interfaces and record a well prepared take. If it is a problem, you can still record audio from your room, but for example you can record video from a few different places in the room and see where it sounds best. Consider the best sound to be the one we can clearly hear details of your playing.

Try to make sure we can see both of your hands cleary. Things like hand resting points, pick grip, picking direction really matters. We can give some tips on these. As for colors...do whatever you like wink.gif

You can try to recheck some higher frets on the tuner. Usualyl compromise between frets and open strings gives best results for recording. I can notice a few note clearly off the pitch.

I'm not 100% sure but It looks like you may messed the picking direction casue main accents in the beginning part are being played with downstrokes. In your take, at some point it looks like switched to reversed picking. It totally changes the way licks work - very often makes them harder.
