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!

Super job learning this entire piece and giving it a good deal of emotion and feeling on playback. It's sometimes easy to forget that putting some soul in to the playing is the key to making it enjoyable for this listener. Your playing is very listenable and isn't sterile or plain. Nicely done there!!
I would say one thing you might improve a bit is how you are doing your vibrato. Your technique is good but it could use a pinch of refinement. Good vibrato in a ballad often starts with just the note fretted, then starts to increase the vibrato and then decrease a bit before moving to the next note. This creates a dynamic emotional sense in the piece. It's a subtle difference but worth looking in to. When you watch Bens vid, notice how, on the vibrato notes, he starts just fretting the note with no vibrato then adds it it an increases then decreases before moving on to the next note. This one thing will take your playing to the next level.

As for this one, you've got it down and I'd say you are ready for the next challenge!!! Speaking of challenges, feel free to join me in SHRED BOOTCAMP and or QUICK LICKS (new quick lick every Saturday in my forum thread. Solid 8 from me!!!
