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: Beginner Solo in D by Muris Varajic

First attempt! Some mistake, sweep picking was very hard for me! Thanks to friends who helped me in the forum and especially Sinisa for precious help on video chat!

You learned the piece very well! good job! all the notes are correct,

I noticed in general, it should be more precise, and confident. Loosen your right hand a bit more, maybe hit the strings harder, and sync your hands up a bit more in order to sound more precise.

The tone you used is good, I think it fits the track.

Hi mavel! The take was good! There were minor mistakes but I think you had a good flow so, if you give a little more time to the details you shall loosen up, gain confidence and interpret the piece better! Keep going man!

Very well played, good timing and excellent tone. I think you played this one very nice, but you need to be more careful with bending and in particular - vibrato. It's shallow and fast, it should be more wider, more slower, better controlled and in pitch. Vibrato needs to be in pitch same way as bends.

Nice take man! I like your tone! As the other instructors said there are some minor details to fix, some wrong notes, bends and also you should improve a bit your vibrato (concentrate on the pitch of both techniques).
