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.

Hey Mr Axeman, that was cool !! cool.gif

I've definitely noticed an improvement in you bending and vibrato.. and your picking is much more positive and with intent smile.gif

The only things that detracted from it were timing issues.. the most noticeable was when you were doing the licks that required a few, constant downstrokes with your picking hand.. you somehow got behind the beat a little too much.

Oh.. and a much more improved tone as well, you've got rid of that fizzy sound !! wink.gif

Well, that is one great take, sounds awesome, and I like your attitude here smile.gif

You should be more careful with timing, make it more tighter and really pick those notes with the drums, you play a lot behind the beat. Another thing to practice are bends. They are slow, they should be fast and precise.

As the guys said, tighter playing and more attention to executing the bends in pitch can improve your take! The attitude and tone are very good mate! biggrin.gif keep it up!

I like the tone you got here, thick and punchy, great for this solo,

one thing about your vibrato: It's a bit too fast and feels nervous, practice doing vibrato at slower pace, it will sound more controlled and more musical,

I agree that the timing feels a bit off here and there, it's not really bad, but it can be perfect,
