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.

My two main areas of improvement would be:

* Timing: The whole take feels rushed. This is evident from the very first note - compare how laid back Guido's timing is for that first slide.

I can imagine this happens mostly because you are recording yourself. To fix it, record yourself on a regular basis (you can upload both here and to social media sites). Also try to think actively of playing relaxed, slightly behind the beat.

* Vibrato: Your over-all technique is good - so vibrato should really be your main concern now. Try to analyse how different guitarists phrase their vibrato and where the movement is coming from.

Keep up the good work - you get a 7 from me!

Is it just me or the video is not working properly? It freezes here.

From what I can hear, the lesson is going well but you still need to put more work on your vibrato and bending techniques to avoid intonation issues, and to make your vibrato sound more natural.

I recommend you to re-check the original lesson and compare each of the phrases with your take. Then, play along with the lesson and try to emulate bending and vibrato, trying to make yours more precise.

I also note some timing issues here and there, so some focus on this element would be good as well.

Keep on the hard work!

Great to have you back Beat!

First of all it's a great choice of lesson. Your tone match is great as well. Your performance is pleasant but there are some little details missing like preslides at some notes but....more obvious issues are timing and bends pitch. You need to push a little more - your bends tend to be a little too low pitch-wise.

There's a very good point of Kris feedback about the vibrato. You may have some problems with it because your mechanics, resting points and hand shaping is different than most of us do. In other words it has no solid basis to execute consistent rotation of the string. Try to focus on this spot because it would affect your overall playing.

Of course it doesn't change the fact that your still one of best students smile.gif Well done smile.gif
