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.

Hi! Here comes Superstitious solo lesson by Zsolt Galambos. This solo is such a classic! I believe Zsolt had his guitar tuned down to D, I transposed solo 1 whole step down and played with standard E tuning. Also, I changed the position of one note, it's the first note in the lick after the fast staccato part, I play it on the B string and Zsolt on the E string. Hope this is ok. This was harder lesson then the previous ones so bare with me! smile.gif I got suggestions from some of the instructors in my previous RECs to play a bit more 'aggressively' so I tried this time, as this lesson is suitable for that also. It's a bit odd to play it more pronounced than one is used to, but thats also matter of habit I guess.
One final thing, I 'discovered' the effects in the Sony Vegas and put some on, hope you won't mind, that was fun too!

Original lesson:
Superstitious solo by Zsolt Galambos

My take:

Played on Ibanez RG350, Sansamp GT2 California setting Gain cranked up, some delay and reverb. Neck pickup.

I like the way you play it with your own personality smile.gif

On the other side, the shred part sound as you are struggling and some bends are weak

Great take and a lovely phrasing. The only thing I've noticed is the bending at 0:45, you should bend it 2 steps higer.
