Hey Ruben,
I really like your tone! Guitar sounds a bit out of tune at some points, but overall it was a very good performance!

Thanks Gitarrero! I'm not sure Why But the guitar has been havin some tuning Issues I think its because I have been alternating between E standart and Eb too much latelly.. I think its the G string that was out of tune ..

Quite nice! you have to be conscious of where each phrase begins. Review the last phrase, you came in a little late.

Hey meu wink.gif

I think it's overall pretty good, if I had to be picky I would say to train a bit more the vibrato. Even though it's rock, it's a ballad and it feels natural, at least to me, to have a more wide and slow vibrato in these sorts of situations. Good job man.

Overall very good cover. Just pay attention to bending to always hit the right pitch/note. Vibrato could use a bit more control and watch out not to de-tune the notes with it. Overall very good and sound was very similar to original.

I was really impressed by your take ! Lots of feeling which is the most important part.. the rest you can fine tune but it's feeling that cannot be taught, so as long as you have that you're in a good position.

If you are looking to work on your vibrato I'm in the chat room tonight from 7pm GMT talking about it.. shameless plug, I know but it would be good to have you there ! smile.gif
