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.

Not bad but it could have been much more precise. Your bends are not in tune at all. I think with this kind of solo you need to take that guitar and play the hell out of it with vibrato and emotions. I like the feel you have for this but this solo needs to tell the story. It's not really a technical exercise. Fast parts were all good but the slow ones were all sloppy. Better luck next time and keep this in mind, don't be afraid to play that guitar. Relax and get the most out of it.

edit: I almost clicked 3 as you set the poll the other way around smile.gif

8 from me but it could be 9 or 10 if you work more on your bends (they are flat most of the time) and vibrato (needs to be more aggressive - Emir plays it with a lot of attitude!). Overall good work !

Everything was great except bending, and vibrato too. Bending was low point, so have to knock off 2 points there, and vibrato was not that good, but reasonably well-sounding. So an 8 from me.
