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.

Hey guys, this is is my first take. Not only I had to learn the song, but also learn how to record, how to use Windows Movie Maker, etc. etc, so it was kinda fun.

I decided to do Emir's "Robben Ford Style Blues Lesson". Robben Ford Style Blues Lesson

Video with my CyberShot T70. Video editing with Windows Movie Maker. Sound recorded with my guitar plugged in my amp (a Roland Cube 30x), then from my amp to a E-MU 202 audio interface, and to the E-MU 202 to my computer. I used Sonar.

I want to thank Emir for making such a great lesson.

I hope you like it.

Thanks,
Juan

Very cool take! I would advise a bit more focus on your posture, straighten up your back for a more natural position.

On sound it gets a little noisy between phrases, may be it is just a noise gate thing will fix that.
About the postur, I dont know, thats something bery personal, and Les Paul bodies aren't as ergonomic as one may with. I feel taht the guitar is hold to much to your right, probably in order to get the left hand a confortable reach, also I think the guitar may be kinda low, and thats why you bring it to your right in the first place.
Lets make this experiment, leave the guitar on the floor, keeping your left arm next to your body bend it without bringing you elbow to the front, your hands should be as natural as possible (usually you hold it closed with no stretching), now keeping that position grab your guitar and place it so your finger 1, and with out moving the hand from its previous position can press the first string on a middle position of the guitar, lets say the seventh fret, that would be a nice placement for the guitar, now try to fix the guitar to that position.

I was happy to see this one smile.gif Thanks for chosing it. Regarding the sound it should be gated with no noise. Blues is never played with this much distortion. Other thing is the phrasing. All short notes have to be 200% shorter than you're playing. Only that way you can sound similar to Robben. There were some little slides here and there which you didn't really execute 100% precise but almost. I still like this take. Very good job.

Good take !
You need to work more on the phrasing. Listen to Emirs lesson and notice how he plays notes shorter and executes them differently. Thats what you need to aim for !
