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.

First off, well played!!! You have a very good grasp of these licks and there are a LOT of licks in this one. Each one of these is worth learning. Very well done on learning all of them!!!!

A few small bits that could use a tweak, the backing is quiet and sounds muffled for some reason, like it lacks some treble. Also, a pinch more gain on your tone would help sustain and attack. As for playing, there is a bit of a flub around 21 seconds in where your playing lacks a bit of confidence and precision. Also, some of your bends are a bit more finger based and less full hand based which keeps them from being as deep/wide as they could be.

Still, solid 6 from me!!

Nice -

I enjoyed this, you were clearly feeling it and grooving!

If you fixed the levels between your lead and the backing (perhaps you need to apply low cut on your guitar signal to make it fit?) - and added a bit more reverb and/or delay - then I think this would sound awesome!

You might also have tuning/intonation issue with the A or D string.

You get a 7 from me, keep up the good work!

Hi mate, nice feeling here!

I think that you have a great potential if you adjust two things here: guitar intonation (tuning) and audio mix (backing and solo levels). Your playing has a great energy and groove so fixing those more technical issues will have a big impact in your take.

I also think that some more sustain in your tone could make everything sounds better so experiment adding a bit more drive or a compressor and see if everything sounds better.

Keep on the good job!

Hey there!

You definitely got the idea what's happening in this lesson. There's some kind of "bluesy feel" in you but it needs polishing to make things sound the way you feel them. For example your range of dynamics is not wide enough yet. You cloud try to make soft notes sound even softer - straight pick almost tounching the string instead of stroking....and...pushing the pick to cut through teh string and rest on the next one...when you want to get the sharp,screaming notes. Relax more on the faster runs at the end. All notes in tehse runs don't have to be equal. Usually in blues these middle notes are just "fills" that are being played really softly between main accents. Try to copy the accents from original lesson. Don't try to play each fast note with the same strangth. You then tense and that's why you loose control over hand sync + it sounds alittle square.
