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 7.5 or higher.

Hey there biggrin.gif good take! A little bit uncertain at some points, but with more practice you'll get there! I can only feel that your hands are not very sure on what they are playing so this probably sends the sentiment of uncertainty. Put a little attitude in it and it'll sound 10 times as good wink.gif

A couple of things you could do to improve your performance. Do a wider vibrato, using your wrist more rather than fingers. And don't leave gaps between notes.

Good attempt but I agree with the others that some more practice with this piece would improve your take. You're not far away but some more work on bending and vibrato will go a long way.

The arpeggio was also difficult for you so perhaps spend some time with some basic sweep picking lessons just to give you a boost in this area. If you isolate these areas of practice and find lessons or exercises that focus on improving those points, when you come to put it all together in this piece you will notice the improvement ! smile.gif

Good job man, there are some things to improve but you are on the right track. You just need some more time of practice concentrating on your right hand picking, vibrato and bends. Keep on working hard! smile.gif

Nicely played, and as guys said - a bit uncertain. Picking and tone are good, but you need to spend a bit more time on slower tempos on this one, to polish up everything nicely. You seem to fret the notes, but not sure what scale you are using, try working on that. That first big bend was a bit weak as well, try to make it stronger and go directly to pitch.
