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.

Hey guys!

This is my first solo or licks practising ever. I've been working on it for one week now and this is the result. My previous videos had artifacts as you know, and I tried to use a converter program (from .mov to avi) and as a result the quality of display decreased but there are no artifacts or sound explosions at least. I think I'm progressing with baby steps both with my playing and videos. Hope I'll get much better. Here's the link to the original lesson.


And my youtube video link as below

Nice take man! You learnt the lesson perfectly and there are just some details to practice. There are some bends and even some vibratos a bit out of pitch but I think that this things will be fixed after some more days of practice. The timing and tone are great. So keep on playing!
Good job. smile.gif

Excellent job with this lessons, timing is very decent, tone is a bit buzzy, but audible, and good feel for the swing rhythm. What you need to work on more are those bends. Make sure you really get them in pitch properly, and practice the speed of the bending process with metronome (practicing slowly will eventually increase your speed of bending).

Ivan and Gabe pointed out the important things, so I guess the only thing I could add is: practice, practice, practice and then...practice some more biggrin.gif

Bending and vibrato are crucial for any player so, if you got the timing right, pay attention to the pitch of the bends, smoothness, and wideness of the vibrato.

All the best

Hey Tolga, good take.. cool lesson from Gabe too ! cool.gif

The guys have covered the main points so I would spend some time with bending and vibrato as they say. Another little tip is try playing notes like 0:16 (your video) with a vibrato that vibrates downward towards the floor, rather than pushing it up. Having an upward vibrato is useful for the thinner strings like B & E but for thicker strings, like G, D, A , E it's easier and more efficient to push the string downward towards the floor. smile.gif

P.S. If you want to get your Youtube video showing up in your post with the picture etc, just click the 'Share' button underneath your video, then find the 'Embed' option, then it will give you a link, highlited in blue. Right click on it and copy that link and paste it in here and then your video will show up here smile.gif
