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.

This sounds very good. Tone is there, and the faster bits are also nicely defined.

There are couple of things I must mention:

1. Timing - is a bit shaky throughout the solo. Try to tap your foot, and nail the notes exactly on the beat, it will sound much more solid
2. Bends - must be perfectly in pitch, try working on them on a slow tempo, and make them in pitch every time.

I agree with Ivan, timing should be more locked in with the drums, just wait a bit more on each note, try playing off timed in the opposite direction, meaning, play "too slow" instead of "too fast" which is what I see in this video. Eventually you'll realise what playing in perfect time feels like,

Nice attitude when playing, you demonstrate feeling!

There's a couple of things to work on :

- timing / bending (as Ivan said)
- pay attention to your left hand vibrato : some notes are slightly out of tune.

The guys mentioned the timing.. at the moment, you're sometimes lagging a little behind the beat.. however, I've always thought that it's better to be like that instead of having the habit of rushing in front of the beat, which is much harder to correct in my opinion.

To get more locked in with the beat just requires you to be a little more rehearsed and confident with the material. As it is, you're probably concentrating on the phrases and getting them right so you're not able to be tighter with timing.. so after practicing these licks more you'll be able to slot them in perfectly smile.gif

Great job man! I like your tone on this one! and I also like the feeling of your playing... smile.gif As the other instructors said earlier the main problem here is the timing. There are some sections where this problem is most important but you should check the whole solo. Some other details to fix are the pitch of your bending and the sweep lick which is the most difficult part of this one.
