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.

Cool!

There are some good moments here like the vibrato at 00:27 - this is promising!

This lesson has a theme that repeats over and over - consisting of some Eric Johnson style broken arpeggios with a legato slur and a bend. It is an excellent etude as it illustrates creative variations of a simple theme while giving you the opportunity to practice repetitively.

Because you do not yet have control of the legato slur - you are not ready to start practicing the lesson over and over. If you attempt anyway- you risk consolidating a bad habit where you constantly push your hand to play some strained and blurry notes.

You are pretty close to nailing the legato lick (as can be seen at 00:50) - but you are not there yet.

You should first isolate the legato part and practice it at a very slow tempo to make sure all notes can clearly be heard - while doing so you must make sure your left hand is as relaxed as possible.

I will not grade you - but I am very much looking forward to a new attempt.

Hi mate!

I can say that this is a very promising take. Your playing is tight and clean, and as Kris said there are moments in which your vibrato is very convincing.

I think that some technique training covering bending, legato (stamina) and also vibrato could be really positive for your overall playing. You sound good, but your fingers don't look comfortable yet when playing those lines, and when bending.

My suggestion is that you continue playing this lesson, but also incorporate some other lessons /exercises into your diary routine. These are my suggestions:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/legato...cking_beginner/
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Yngwie-Style-Bending/
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Bens-Land-Of-Legato/

And one more thing, try to make your left hand movement smaller, always try to keep your fingers the closest posible to the fret-board.
