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.

Yeah!! Love your tone.

I think this is pretty solid over all. Especially the precision of your bending and hand sync.

The faster runs need more practicing to improve timing and accuracy (btw I raised difficulty level of this lesson from 4 to 5 due to the last run).

Be sure to devote a lot practicing attention to vibrato - if you could boost your vibrato you would start sounding truly pro and I would be one of your fans!

Also your guitar might be a little low in the mix.

Keep up the great work - you get a 7 from me.

Hi Beat!

This lesson is a good choice. The overall is sounding consistent, but as Kris said, there are some elements that need more practice or attention. These ones are vibrato which sometimes is weak or not happening, and the other is fast alternate picking runs.

Dedicate some time to compare your vibrato with the original lesson's in order to notice what's your phrasing lacking. Then, isolate that fast run in the end and practice it as a loop. You could complement this work with some other alternate picking exercises.

Keep on the hard work!

Hey Beat!

As usual your take is enjoyable and there are no serious issues. I see your overall work on vibrato is in progress - it more consistent and nicely fit with the proper pitch control. I think that guys observation on vibrato is probably cause more by the rate difference between you and Guido. Notice that each of his "pulls" for vibrato is more synced with overall backingtrack timing. He's more like being synced to 8th notes at most of the vibration. As for the depth he probably goes for lower rate but higher depth. These two parameters usually need some balance to make the vibrato smooth and pleasant. It's a tiny detail but remember that you are being jugded more like a pro now \m/

As for the tone I realize what you were trying to achive. Unfortunately this particular cab impulse/cab sim has a little too much of harsh treble that has no "tonal information" in it so it sounds like something unnecessary and unpleasant. There are some options for sure where the tone would seem as bright as this one but it would have more definition in the treble spot.


Anyway great job and a beautiful guitar smile.gif
