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.

Sounds very good. Your main problem is vibrato as far as I can see. You are doing vibrato suitable for nylon string guitar. For metal stringed guitar, it's best to use circular motion vibrato from the wrist.
On a side note, the notes and playing were good, but you could use more contact with the beat, and more fluidity in your playing.

Good work Kieran.
I think you got most of the things down except picking. I see a lot of down strokes, especially in the beginning. Regardless of tempo or rhythm, picking should be executed in the right manner. Everything else I don't have too much to comment on. Good work !

Good work with the lesson. Everything is mentioned in posts above. A little more fluidity in executing this and it will be perfect!
