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.

Started this one this morning meaning to learn just one video, and ended up learning the whole thing.

Here's the original lesson. Jazz Swing Lead Lesson

I used an Ibanez GRG170DX, into a Line6 Podxt, into my computer.

P.s. Youtube seems to make my videos go out of sync. If you could tell me how to fix it that'd be great.

Nice take. Some notes are a bit out of tune. Once again, I'm not sure if it's a problem of your guitar setup (intonation), the effect you're using or the basic tuning.
Anyway, pay more attention with your vibrato, as example on the last note.

Very good take! Still some work needs to be done with rhythmic placement.

You seem to be little bit detuned,
I guess this tremolo/rotary effect you used has something to do with it extra.
Playing was fine tho, some notes weren't 100% in place but no big deal. smile.gif
