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.

Hi !

Nice take man, you've learned the lesson.
Your vibrato will be nice, but in slow ballads try to first 'stay' on the note and then add the vibrato, instead of starting the note with the vibrato and then stop it.
You also should check your guitars intonation because over the 12th fret it sounds a little bit out of tune.
Overall it was a good take, but next time try to put a little bit more emotion and enthusiasm into your playing and it will be perfect ! smile.gif

Keep it up !

Very good. You have natural fluid playing. Couple of things tho:

- when doing vibrato with pinky finger, you should support the pinky with other fingers behind it, it will be easier to do vibrato, and it will sound better.
- when playing like this, try to put your thumb behind the neck, not above. You will get more movement on the fretting hand across the fretboard. this can be a long-term task, but it's well worth it. Anchoring thumb up there all the time is not efficient, it's good sometimes, but not always.

Very nice take. Pay attention to vibrato and advices written above. You should try to relax more when recording and you'll get more convincing attitude as it will show in your playing too.

This is indeed a very nice take, as said above!

What I'd add is the following: you can use your wrist as well to perform a nice vibrato. This way you'll have a more floating vibato. Try to keep your fingers as close to the fretboard as much as possible while executing licks. Your sound is also very nice, I like it!
