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.

Slow Melody Lesson

Next REC video!

So far I think that this is my best submission. I had a great time learning this lesson and for the first time I had the "one with my guitar" feeling.

I did change my tone at the last second and I don't think that was the right choice. However, this was the best take I had which I'm not 100% happy with, damn that camera sapping my skills!

I think for my next lesson I'll try a Level 3, oooohh!

Thanks for watching.

It sounds good, and all the notes are there. The problem is with tone control, vibrato and muting mostly. You need to try to achieve a more fluid take, by decreasing pauses between the notes, increasing note sustain, and achieving more wider, stronger vibrato and bending.

I noted here the same problem as the other lesson I commented. But also here, you should work on your vibrato. Let it be wide and relaxed.

It was a pretty good take and tone was similar to original lesson. You just have to work a little more on vibrato and tone control in order to play clean and sustain those long notes well.
Good job overall! smile.gif
