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.

Very nice take. Just a couple of suggestions, some of your vibratos sound little sharp to me, use your ears to compare your pitch with the backing track. Keep attention on the bendings @ 1:14 because they sound slightly out of tune.

Cool, we have a poll ! smile.gif

Here's what I wrote on the other video (without the poll)

Hi playaxeman !

This is a great lesson to do and I think you did it well smile.gif People probably know what I'm always going to say by now... vibrato, vibrato blah blah tongue.gif It's true though.. vibrato really can define the performance. I would be tempted to devote some of your practice time to experimenting with different vibrato approaches in orer to give you a bigger arsenal of expression. Your timing was good, your phrasing sounded accurate.. your vibrato just seems a little rushed and on some notes it can even sound a bit sharp (possible because your pushing the string up as you do your vibrato). So to recap, my advice is just to try some different approaches to give you a broader pallete.

Not much to add here neither.

I completely agree with the above on your vibrato.

Still it's a nice take smile.gif
