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.

I LOVE THE VIDEO! smile.gif

I like your tone and the phrases are there. I would check the intonation (maybe tuning of the guitar). And also a little bit of timing.

A good way to do this is to just listen to the backing and follow it with a rhythm until you really feel it has locked in. Then go ahead with the solo.

Hey Brandon!

I really enjoyed watching your vid. It seemes that you are improving since your last take. Your timing is very good, I also like your sound.
This is the time when you should start working on evening your notes and finding your vibrato. What I suggest is at first try to copy Muris' vibrato, and later on develop your own. Widen it a bit and make it even. Use your wrist to produce it.

As playing wise, try to play the notes so they would sound like they are flowing. You are playing it more staccatoish, what I mean is try to let one note sound exactly untill you hit the next one. Listen to the original vid and try to copy it as much as you can.

Hi Brandon, good to see you . . .

Agreed with Zsolt completely, vibrato is important.
I think Ben Higgins' Vibrato odyssey series would help you a lot in this topic.

Overall I liked your take, and the unusual but very nice lighting smile.gif

Keep it up !
