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.

Very good, I like your timing here and vibrato is on the good way to become very good. The things you really need to work on are bends. Bending needs to be fast, precise, in time, and so does release of the bend. Likewise, vibratos, need to be more even (every time in pitch, and synced with the backing). You are on the right track, so it's a mater of polishing these details out.

Hey Michael, great to see another take from you again smile.gif

Your vibrato and bending is increasing in its impressiveness - good work !

The key element for me that was compromised was the timing.. I would probably put my money on it happening because of the concentration you put into each lick. Sometimes, you get moments of having to quickly mentally compute what the next lick is.. and in the time it takes to happen, we're behind the beat. I could be wrong but it does happen a lot.

On the other side of the coin, the sliding phrases towards the end were a bit too rushed. So, all in all, your technique is getting better but the timing suffered on this one and because it's a very noticeable and important element of music I've had to be a bit stricter than I'd like to be sad.gif

But I would definitely take this take as a postive though smile.gif

Vibrato feels a bit sharp still, I don't know if it's the guitar's intonation or the tuning, but it definitely feels sharp so try to fix that by really tuning your guitar well and listening for the notes with no vibrato first,

I think that's the issue you should tackle now, the notes are accurate and well learned,

Timing wise you still rush a bit, that's a natural tendency, so consciously draw back the tempo in your body, by feel, and you'll see that it fits nicer with the backing

You are improving you playing a lot man! The vibrato still needs to be more natural and you should feel more comfortable with it but you are on the right track! smile.gif Your concentration on vibrato and bending made you forget the timing which is also VERY important. There are many timing issues in the whole take that you should improve.
Keep on working hard!
