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 am not very satisfied mostly with cleanness, but I wanted to make first step. This is my first recording and I haven't used real video camera. I used Nikon camera for photos.

Well there are many things to work on here
but considering that this was your first recording
I must say...thumbs up!!! smile.gif

First of all, try with less reverb so you could hear yourself
when playing more clearly, reverb uses to cover lot of mistakes we make
and that's not what we need atm.
Second, you seem to be in a hurry, you played many licks before the right place.
No need for that, you have plenty of time!

Bottom line, break this lesson in smaller sections, go lick by lick,
feel more comfortable with each and then connect them gradually.
Use GP file to track your timing for each lick
if you have any problems when playing separate licks
without BT.

Good effort tho, looking forward to more of your recordings. smile.gif

This can be much better. None of your lines were precise enough. Vibrato, picking, overall feel - all of this can be improved. Your sound has too much gain. You did a good job but there is a room for improvement.

You did a pretty good job, considering it was your first video. I agree completely with other instructors, but I have to add something: Tune your guitar precisely to pitch everytime you play. It will even develop your ear some time playing at the same tuning!
