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 mate!

GREAT to see you working hard on this one!! It's not an easy lesson at all! I'm also planning to get into it anytime soon. biggrin.gif

I can notice really important improvements here regarding tone, timing and cleanness. It's awesome how much you improved this one! There are some parts in the second half that now sound nailed! Well done!

There is still work to do in order to polish timing, but I can notice improvements regarding any of the things that I've marked in my previous feedback. One thing that could make a good impact in your playing is to try to emulate Diego's right hand movements. Notice how he approaches the strings and also how he keeps movement the hand up and down even when he is not playing in order to keep the groove.

You are on the right track, congrats!!

Nice progress here!

There are indeed several sections now where you start to feel in control. And this is remarkable progress pace from February 7 😲👌

From a listener perspective there are still several places - basically when you transition from a passage you control to one where you're struggling - which kill the overall impression.

I will give you 4, and I am very excited to see where your next take will land you. Keep up the amazing work 😎

Hey Tim smile.gif

You are more focused and I can notice you focused more on the middle strum part - the motion is wider and little heavier - that does affect the Tim-ing (smile.gif in a good way. Unfortunately there are still moments when you "slip out of the timeline"...quite heavily. I bet these moments are not loaded into your RAM well enough. If you still hesitate in thinking, it's hard to expect the fingers will do the job themselfs.

The proecss looks like this

1. Getting the sketch done (lot'so f mistakes, having ide what generally should be in which spot)
2. Getting things clear (mistakes) , Knowing where everything should be and how exaclty it should sound but still having unxepected "holes in the memory" while playing
3. Loading stuff to muscle memory. That'swhere your minc is free to focus on actuall stuff like timing and feel. This stage is actually way further than students think they're ready to post a take.

You are at the stage 2. I thikn you are not showing use all you've got because you pass on practise before stage 3 comes. Maybe try to push yourself to a higher level to reach more profits of the lesson. I can't be sure 100% but watching you play I bet most of these issue are not your lack of skills but your mind not being able to oparate so fast at two fields simulataneously.

When you load stuff to you musce memeory...that's where the real fun begins smile.gif
