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 friend! You did a good effort with this difficult lesson. It still needs some more work. The are some parts (mainly the faster) where the timing isn't correct and some others that could sound tighter. You have also to work on your vibrato, make it wider and more confident as well as on your bending because there are some notes out of pitch. I think that you should work on this two techniques but maybe using another easier lesson that allows you to concentrate only on vibrato and bending. Keep on working! smile.gif

Hey there mate! As Gabe said, focus on the articulation elements: bending and vibrato, as they still need some more work! Otherwise, your take is good for a difficult lesson such as this one! Keep on rockin'!

Hey there, welcome to REC !

I like your tone and you've got some good skills but they need some work to make this piece really shine.

First of all, the bending at the beginning: You need to bend up a whole tone and then slightly release it by a semitone and then back up to the original pitch. These little details are crucial otherwise you're not learning the things that Muris intended. Also, if you work on these elements you will be very happy that you did so when you look back and see the amount of control that you've gained.

All the fast parts are quite different to the original and sound like a mixture of Muris's licks and what you improvised on the spot so they don't quite fit as you're not landing on the right notes at the right time.

You've got some potential but just give yourself time to get those bits right and you'lle be glad you did smile.gif

Excellent work with this one, I really like the tone you did and you started so well. Later on, you had lots of problems with timing, vibrato, some bends and faster passages. I think you need to work on this one a bit more, to learn each note properly, and to play it in time better. I think you can do it if you really dedicate some time in playing this on slower tempos. Faster passages are the problem.

The tone is beautiful! I love it,

Timing feels good but still in the fast passages, you need a bit more precision and confidence,

The bends and vibrato sounds great, so you pretty much have the hardest stuff down,

On the faster passages I'd say treat them as every other phrase, don't save energy or security on them, just treat every note with importance and have very clear understanding of where the down beat is so that all the other notes fall into place nicely
