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.

A good effort ! Still you need to practice more with focusing on the timing! All the tones are there ,you got it, just try to concentrate that they turn out more natural ! Don't be impatient, reduce the pace and go gradually !!

Hey there my friend! This is shaping up nicely, but as Sinisa said, timing is a bit faulty in places and it's dragging the take down. I would say, let's take this lesson down to your thread and see what we can do to perfect it, k?

Hi mate! As my friends said, there are some things to work on this one. Timing is one of them but I also think that your vibrato should be better as well as your bends. You vibrato should be more consistent and your bends more precise, many of them don't reach the correct pitch. The timing problem is more important in the faster passages and I think that it's a technique limitation. You should work on alternate picking exercises to gain some more speed. Let me know if you want some suggestions or assistance! wink.gif

Hey Waggers, I thought this was a great effort. As my comrades said, the timing, bending and vibrato could improve but generally speaking you had quite a good handle on the track.

For some vibrato tips, please check my thread here, hopefully it'll help you out smile.gif

It's a good take! I can see that you have been working on this lesson! But there is a few things that you need to focus on!
try to practice it using a click at a very slow tempo to work on your timing! I also think that your guitar is out of tune a little bit, for the next time tune it right before the take I would also suggest to give it to a guitar tech to set up!
Your tone was pretty good! I think if you will spend some time working with a metronome you will get this song to sound perfect!
