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.

The first thing I noticed is inconsistent vibrato. I think I told you that before. Another thing is connections between notes. You're choping them too much so they lose their smooth continuity, especially in faster runs. The overall control is pretty good. The sound is a bit buzzy but it has a nice definition and sounds close to Brian. This is pretty solid take. You're close to all 5s but when you fix these things, I hope very soon.

Good take Alex. Keep your back straight as much as possible while playing, even if you're watching the neck.

Your tone really needs improvement,
it sounds like ton pot was turned down or som,
not enough attack etc.
And vibrato, yeah, could be better, work on. smile.gif

Very nice take on the lesson! Try sitting more straight and having your fretting hand thumb more behind the neck for support. Also try to keep notes sustained more as David does in lesson, in order for your playing to be smooth (and not
"staccato" like).

I agree with Muris, there is something problematic with sound. Otherwise very good!
