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.

Original lesson: Bon Jovi Style 7: Rock & Roll - Rhythm & Solo by Lucio Antolini

I do have amplitude and I tried to get the same sound but for some reason, it didn't sound the same as his. So, I used guitar rig 5 and the 94 rock solo preset for both solo and rhythm.

Good take! A few things that you can work on!
1) Your bending is not very accurate, you can practice it by bending the string and than checking the pitch also you can plug in to a tuner and bend note exactly to the pitch until you will get feel of it!
2) Be careful when you are playing because sometimes you hit an open string by accident
3) your vibrato can be a little deeper and and more in time!
4) When you are playing fast lick it sounds a little sloppy try to work on it slow using a metronome

This is very good playing, with some very nice tone to it, and timing is nice as well. Here are some tips on how to make it even better:

- rhythm guitar should a be a bit more cleaner for clarity
- your strumming should be a bit more tighter (it's a bit lazy at the moment)
- your bending should be more swifter, again a bit "lazy" or slow, and the bended note should be dead on the pitch
- there is a problem with the vibrato while you bend, try to make it more even. Practice only vibrato movement while bending, it's difficult, but it will produce much better results.

Good take man! you did a good job. As Ivan and Alex said you have to improve some things to make it sound perfectly. The section that need more work is the last one.... you still need to work on those fast licks over metronome at slower tempos... maybe you could find this article inspiring... here.
There are also some unwanted noises and out of pitch bends that need adjustments... the noises should be prevented muting the strings that you aren't using with the palm of your right hand or with the fingers of your left hand. For your bending here you can check a new approach by Alex Feather for working on this technique LINK.

Wonderful advice from Gabe and the references as well smile.gif try to slow things down a bit in order to build up a strong take on this piece! All the best mate!

Well, there are more elements on which you have to work a little more! On the first place - bending,is not stable and almost led to false.
Unwanted notes - too much distortion leads to such errors, which may bother a lot :/. You've got very good advice above, and it remains only to practice smile.gif !
