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.

Great take.. you captured the same emotion and feeling of Adrian's lesson smile.gif

My one pice of advice here would be to watch out for when you do vibrato with the first finger. You have a tendency to just use the finger to vibrato the note, instead of the whole wrist. If you rotate the wrist outwards towards the headstock, it will pull the finger down which creates the vibrato effect smile.gif

Great playing !

Nice playing mate! Aside from Ben's advice, I think you can be even more expressive, if you explore a bit more! I said explore, not practice, because you nailed the piece, but the interpretation can be improved, by playing until you reach that certain state of mind, where every note can tell a story smile.gif that's your next level! Very good work!

It sounded great! the tone is perfect, the bends are great and expressive,

I would only tell to be even more locked-in with the backing, push your internal tempo a bit back, and it will sit in with the rhythm better
