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.

Well played with really nice round tone. Timing is also pretty good in most of the take, but you had some problems with that descending faster part in the beginning, so that needs more practice. Your bending and vibrato are a bit weak, you should level them up with the rest of the skills. Work on bend & release, so it's more faster, and work on vibrato from the wrist - so it's more wider.

Great take ! You've got good feel, and good phrasing skills which is a really solid foundation of guitar playing smile.gif

The string bending (especially the bigger bends with vibrato on them) could be stronger. By this, I mean you could work on the timing of the bends so you sound as if you're 100% in control. The other aspect is adding vibrato to the bends. Try making it more even.. to further explain what I mean, have a look at this lesson I made. You don't have to learn it but have a look and a read through smile.gif

Awesome!! Your tone is fantastic, your timing perfect and your phrasing very expressive. This lesson seem easy but it isn't... you did a really good job mate. The only section that need some work is the last fast passage, and maybe your vibrato could be wider but the over is excellent. Congrats!

Very good take! The only thing you can work on is your vibrato it sounds like it's out of the control! Make it sound like you mean it! You can practice it using a metronome, just set up a click at a comfortable tempo and vibrate string for every bit try to make it deeper and have control over it! The rest was very good!

Nice one !I have a small criticism of vribato, which is supposed to be a little more flowing and with greater amplitude, as the original.
As is suggested, use a metronome, it is an inevitable thing in your workout! Keep it a good work wink.gif

Nice work! Looks like you put some good practice in to this. On the vibrato issue I have a suggestion, you are using one finger in some vibrato sections and the result can sound weaker than you'd like until you get some really good finger strength built up. As you continue to build, maybe try to bend with two fingers, or even three. Some people use as many as four. This allows for greater control and leverage on the string making strong/wide vibrato much easier to attain.
