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.

I'm always gentle man biggrin.gif
Seriously, you need to work on your bends. As a simple exercise play some notes around the fretboard and try to get them - the SAME pitch - playing some frets before, doing 1/2 bend or a full bend and so on.
Looking forward to see your next takes smile.gif

Nice smile.gif The rhythm placement are good for the first half of the take, but it slips towards the end.
It's the bends that are the biggest problem here.
You have to listen more closely to when the right pitch is achieved, and then stop the bend.
Jerry gave some good advice on how to fix this smile.gif

Good job!
I agree with my fellow instructors, just a little work is needed on bend precision and a little work on rhythm placement.
Besides that, good posture and nice tone. Good one!
