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.

Original lesson: Satriani Made Easy - Ballad by Ben Higgins

Here's my REC for this lesson, which I really liked a lot. I had no problems recording audio, but had to do many video takes to get one without a glitch, or the less possible. Hopefully this is good enough. I tried to be one time, per your advise on previous REC. I know I have to do more alt picking. I promise my next lesson will. Thanks!

Hi Adam!

This is a very cool lesson for you since it requires a good control of vibrato and that's an element that you definitely need to continue working. I see that you are doing a big effort to make it wide and consistent but it's irregular. Sometimes I notice that you start the (vibrato) movement from your fingers and that makes the things more difficult. Always remember that it should start from your wrist.

Also, remember to use the other fingers to help the one that is pressing the fret board. This will give you more strength and control.

Besides this, you can also put some focus on timing, and polish a bit your tone by working on EQ and maybe trying different guitar pick ups to make it sound warmer.
