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.

Very well done!

The most important thing that caught my eye (!) here is your posture. I also have a tendency to play with a curved back - and believe me this is dangerous!

Not only can it give give you all sorts of back and arm related pain/injuries - but it will give you less strength. Therefore it will make you tense up faster and basically not allow you to play as fast/technical as you could have done with good posture.

Playing wise I can tell you have worked on this one seriously - and the most important thing would be fixing the sustained notes with vibrato - which often sound off, pitch wise. I cannot tell for sure if it is your vibrato or guitars intonation. Or actually it could be both - because if your intonation is off it will be harder for you develop a consistent vibrato since half of the time you will unconsciously try to compensate for bad tuning.

The fix is often simple, clean or change your strings, and then double check your intonation.

Over all this is very well done - I am really looking forward to more REC takes from you.

You get an 8 from me!

Hey there! Nice choice of lesson. Ben's "Made Easy" series is awesome.

Let's see what could we notice in your take.

1. First bend seems to be a little overbent - little too high with the pitch.

2. 0:06 - here it sounds like an intonation issue. be sure to recheck the tuning on frets (not only open strings) and make compromise to set an average good intonation all over the fretboard.

3. 0:012 - here a good thing to spot. Your legato strength and mechanics work very descent. Trills are great way to expose any kind of lack in legato skills. You manage your strength properly

4. In next part of the take I notice some more good aspects of your playing, such as right hand discipline, accurate picking with even tone of each note, good unwanted noise muting job.

Unfortunately it all somehow sounds a like being tuned just a slice below the right pitch. When you bend, you tend to overdo it, but all the "straight" notes sound a little too low to me.

Anyway....that's a great job!

Hi mate!!

Good job here! I think that you've already received excellent feedback here from Kris and Darius. I think that Kris comment about posture is very important since I also think that this can be dangerous in the long term.

On the other hand, Darius has been very precise with details on your playing, I have nothing to add here.

Keep on rocking!!
