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.

Very nice tone, I like it a lot! smile.gif Sounds great. Original is being played with a bit more fluid feel, you play it a bit stiffer and staccato-like. Try to make the sustain of the notes a bit longer, and do a vibrato with a bit more strength, and you'll get there.

Very cool blues tone smile.gif And well played! As Ivan already mentioned, a tad staccato in bits. Blues often needs a bit of slide/slur of the fingers to sound bluesy. When played to strictly it almost sounds like Jazz. But this is a good problem to have as playing looser is usually not that hard. Player tighter is often a stick point. One note on vibrato, sometimes, it's good to land on a note and give it a hint of vibrato even if it's not written that way. Landing with authority on a given note gives the vibe of intentionality and purpose that makes a solo really shine.

Hey mate! Congrats on your first take and welcome to the REC section wink.gif

I must agree with the guys and say that fluidity is required on this one and all in all, you are playing it with good timing but don't just play it smile.gif feel it! It needs some soul into it to make it groove! biggrin.gif

Sounds very good! I like your sound and it sounds like you spent some time with it!
It's hard to hear the backing track and as instructors mentioned you can add more staccato!
Your timing was great and the whole vibe from this video is very nice!

Hi friend! You did a good job on this one! I agree with the other instructors regarding the accentuation of your playing. Check out how Jonathan accentuates every phrase and adds staccato to give it a killer feel to the take. There are also some of the faster licks that has muted notes so they need some more job. By the way you did a good job. Well done! wink.gif

Nice take ! But i think that your sound is a bit rough for this style of playing. Try to reduce middle and increase gain a bit , on that way you'll get the fluidity and will reduce plosive sound. Keep a good work !
