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.

Original lesson: O Holy Night - Adolphe Adam by Marcus Lavendell

Definitely not perfect, but would appreciate any feedback to improve on as Christmas gets closer, haha :) Thanks!

Hey almighty all powerful king of gods! smile.gif Nice take! I would not use so much delay in the first part, as for the second one, those bends are pretty accurate, but a little bit more work will get them perfect wink.gif Keep up the good work mate!

Nice take man! I always love listening to this piece again. The only thing to improve is your bending technique, there are some bends a bit out of pitch. Work on that and you'll have a flawless take.

Duuuuuude \m/ Nice take.. still lovin' that guitar ! wink.gif

Maybe a tad overkill on the delay as C-man said but altogether I like your chosen tones. For me, getting into it with a heavier vibrato and bending up to the notes as Marcus does, rather than fretting them (I hope that makes sense) will raise the whole piece up ! smile.gif

Nice and inspired playing, I also noticed a small bending imbalance, but these are things you'll already be able to sort out very quickly.smile.gif

This is great take, I think you played everything very good. There is one big bend that came out a bit wrong, and the last band is a bit weaker too. Try to maintain full control over them. So, a 9 from me.

Well done! I won't hit you again about the Delay. The playing is quite good here and your overal performance is impressive. Well done on learning this and on executing it. You are officially ready for the holidays!

As the guys have said, a bit more focus on some of the precision in the bends, and maybe being more aggressive in using bending instead of fretted notes would be great. Overall lthough, great take!
