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.

Nice take man! A little more tightness in the riffing section and more precision with the bends should get this lesson into perfect shape!

This is a rocking take ! Like Cosmin, I only noticed timing imperfections... when it comes to bends and phrases, that's where you usually have timing issues as opposed to your riff, which are always pretty damn good smile.gif

P.S. I like the horse picture in the background !

Nice take man!! I had forgotten this lesson! biggrin.gif

As Cosmin said, you have to concentrate on your timing and also try to make your bends sound always in pitch.

Check out this tutorial where you'll find some bending exercises.

Very good take. As guys said, you should focus a bit more on the timing, there was one bigger mistake in the rhythm timing just before the solo. As far as technique goes, it was very good, except bending and vibrato. I think you are getting there with these, but need to make them more precise, don't forget that every bend should be in pitch, and every vibrato should be even, strong, and synced with tempo if possible.

I like the tone and the accuracy of the notes, the technique looks good to me, both hands are comfortable,

The riff section feels a bit rushed, the solo part starts off pretty good, sounds killer,

there's still a bit of work left on some bends(0:43), some of them are really good, so the next step is to really make them sound "satch" like, so pay attention at how he sometimes is very aggressive with the strings,

I would say try to hit the strings harder and bend them even stronger too, see how that feels just as a experiment,
