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.

Sounds very good man! Again very nicely played take with some great definition of the notes.

Like in the previous post, the thing that is the problem is the timing, bending and vibrato. Try to work more on these things, just to polish them up, they are a bit rough on the edges.

I love the attitude you have on this. You look very confident and secure, and that reflects in the music,

I think you should exaggerate your bends more to experiment. And maybe the tone is a bit too sharp, more mids would make it better for this type of stuff,

But the notes are spot on!

I noticed that the fatest parts are sometimes out of time.
Just slow it down until you get them perfectly in time & it would be a perfect take.
Great job!

Great take Axeman ! Try to get the slide in the riff at the beginning (and end) he slides up a semitone before he slides back if you know what I mean ?

I agree about the tone being a bit fizzy and sharp but apart from adding some more vibrato to give it more life it was a solid effort. smile.gif

P.S. Don't forget to vote as well as comment, guys wink.gif

I don't think i have anything else to add smile.gif the guys pinpointed everything down to the last detail - timing is everything and i think that you should try to internalize what you played - maybe you already did, but you still need to practice in order to bring the take to perfection. What i mean by internalizing is that you should understand what you play and why it's played there and then just add expression - the almighty bending, vibrato and dynamics (lighter or heavier pick attack depending on what notes you wish to bring forth) tongue.gif best of luck!

Hi again man! biggrin.gif This take is good and the comments are similar to the ones taht I did in your Solo in D lesson. There is a problem with the timing (could it be a problem with the latency of your computer that is confusing you?). that should be fixed as a priority in your playing. The faster alternate picking licks need also some work... I think that some repetitive AP exercises could help a lot. However the take is still good.
Keep on working hard! Cheers. smile.gif
