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 say this take was pretty good - now, out of what I'm seeing here, you will need to work on reaching the pitch of some notes, improving timing where it's a bit unsure and widen the vibrato a little bit more! That would be kind of it, for an outstanding take! All the best and keep up the good work!

That was pretty good, with nice touch, good tone control, cool slides, and decent muting.

The problems that you need to fix here are vibrato and tuning. Your vibrato needs to be more controlled, and stronger. You should try to "standardize" it as well, so it doesn't sound different on one note to the other. Once you do that, then you can adapt to current note and it's specific function. Your playing sounded a bit "drunk" because of the poor tuning and intonation, and this is common issue. Try to tune your guitar couple of times before starting to record, and you create foundation for a "perfect" take.

i can't agree more with ivan, i think it's a very solid take, you just need to work on some minor things, but overall i enjoyed a lot, and that's a nice LP.

cool tone again!
