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.

There are still some issues that you should work on. First you should always check the tuning of your guitar before you record something, it sounds out of tune here. Your bends and your vibrato contribute to this cause you have problems reaching the notes that you want to reach, thats definitely something you should work on. Also your timing is not good in the faster parts, so I would recommend to still practice this lesson before you give it another shot. Make sure you practice it slowly, with a click, and only improve the speed when you feel comfortable. And about your video, a bit more light would make things look much better wink.gif

Guitars: various Gibson Les Pauls / Gibson J 45

well man, Marcus is right. first thing I heard was the fact the guitar is not completely in tune.
about the faster parts, I think you can play them, you have the skills, but they are a little bit messed up. so, the advice of play the licks with a click and playing them in slow tempo would be very useful for you.
anyway it was a nice take man. keep on practising.

All has been said, and I agree. Lighting needs to be better, guitar in tune, bending technique more precise and stronger, and synchronization between both hands better.
