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.

Very solid rocking tone and good sense for timing. It's positive thing you are standing as well. Things you need to work on are alternate picking and bending, try to form a small practice routine where you will focus on these areas, and it will be awesome.

I have to agree with Ivan here! Getting to know alternate picking will increase your efficiency as a player and will remove a lot of effort in playing. Bending is also crucial - pay a little attention at some points where you are a little flat in respect to the note you are trying to reach. I would also lower the volume of the guitar just a bit. Keep rocking mate!

Your timing is good and you're good at playing the phrases. Some time spent on bending will go a long way. Also try to look at your vibrato at some point. Try to use your other fingers to add strength to the 'vibrato finger'. Have a look at some of my vibrato lessons (or just any of my videos where I'm playing lead) to see how I do it. I use the idle fingers in front if the fretting finger, push them against the fretting finger, so there is the strength of 3 fingers (for example) pushing and pulling the note, not just one. smile.gif

I agree with the previous comments about your take. You did a good job, timing is good and also your tone. You have to work on bending, alternate picking and also a bit on vibrato. Your alternate picking technique needs to be more fluently. I think that you have to work on exercises or lessons based exclusively on this technique.

I like your picking, it's very strong and solid

Timing is good which the most important thing to me

Make sure you do bends and vibrato with the rist not fingers.
