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.

great take! Perfect timing, but I think you could use some vibrato exercises from the wrist and with the metronome.

Vibrato is on a good way but you need to tighten it up more. Some notes are not on the beat. This is slow tempo and you need to be careful not to play before the beat. That diminished arpegio wasn't precise in timing. Overall very good work.

sometimes playing at slow tempo could be as difficult as fast tempo. pay attention on timing. and adding vibrato you´ll make more interesting these long notes.
great take anyways! smile.gif

Nice take. Just pay atenttion on your left hand's position. Sometimes, you're holding the neck in the wrong way. I'd only recommend you to put your thumb over the neck when bending. Then, try to keep it in the middle of the neck, paralel to your middle finger. Maybe this is the reason why your vibrato is not so wider. Try to relax your hand and let the wrist do it's thing when you need some vibrato
