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: The Voice Of Your Guitar by Cosmin Lupu

This is my interpretation. Not flawless, but I guess a live take never is. That pinch harmonic was not on purpose. :p It just happened. Brandon

Hey Brandon.. beautiful and inspiring playing from you here ! smile.gif

I would say that your version is a little more hard edged and percussive than Cosmin's take.. not in a bad way, just different. I can tell what you're going for.. the only thing that let that side down a little bit was that some of the pauses that seperated the notes from the bends sounded awkward.. like a break in the flow.

At 1:49 it sounded like an unintentional detour from the meoldy but I could be wrong smile.gif

I like to get the criticisms in first and leave the positives until last.. your take really came into its own when you first hit the bending. Really brilliant control and great tone.. especially from an Ibanez, which I've always struggled to get a nice tone out of.

I really like your vibrato as well. I know you can't reply here but I'm interested to know who your influnces are for vibrato and bending because it's really paid off.

Great stuff !

Excellent expression and great tone, sounds awesome. There are couple of small mistakes, but I think the problem here is usually about vibrato. Some came out good, specially the ones on the higher frets, but you need to make them a bit more controlled in every position, and relax a bit while you are vibrating.

This is a really good take man. Your playing, expression and tone are really enjoyable. There are some little errors as you said but there is nothing serious. Well done! wink.gif
