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 tone smile.gif and I think it's a good take! You can make it perfect though, if you'll work a little more on the accuracy of your bends and the strength of your vibrato - some of the notes seem a little bit unsure and not sufficiently sustained. Get these things into shape and you can nail this just like Ivan does wink.gif best of luck!!

Very nice solo!

I would say you need a bit of better of intonation...but apart from that you are 90% there

It sounds very good mate! I think your timing is very good, you captured the essence. The thing you should work a bit more is bends, they are bit rough on the edges. Pitch control is in the question.
