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.

My Take (#3)

Comments: Hi Guys, this is attempt #3. Once again, I've tried to take your comments on board. I think I have a better sound, a bit less distortion this time with a little more chorus. I've also made an attempt to keep the vibrato cleaner, paying more attention to the use of the wrist, and keep control of the pitch. (Bad habits can be so hard to get rid of, but hopefully I'm making progress!!) Thanks!

I compared your take with Kataldo's take and I think that your take is very close to his take! Well done! Regarding the sound he obvioulsy recorded his guitar with a profesional mic while you did it with the camera mic (if I'm not wrong). However It seems that you achieved a similar sound in this one.
Good job!

Very good take! Everything was spot on, but I think vibratos could be a bit wider, and dynamics could be more pronounced.
