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 shot Carmine ! Bending is just fine, accurate and balanced pitch, but what reduces the final impression is the transition between the two bends. You must try to get this transition a little more flowing and relaxed ! A simple solo line with a bend at the end - there's nothing more beautiful ! Keep a good work wink.gif

Hi Carmine! Those bends sound very good! You reach the correct pitch in most of them. Once again I have to say that if you could put the backing track a bit higher we could analyse better your timing and playing in general. By the way I think that you are on the right track with this one. Keep on the good job! wink.gif

Hey Carmine, Gabe is right - the backing should be louder, but out of what I can deduct, you are pretty close with the timing in most of the places and the bends are in pitch smile.gif

Maybe another take, where you would focus on the timing a bit more, would bring up better results and a step forward for you smile.gif

Very very nice!!! I can see such a huge progress on your bending!!!!!
Most of them were perfect and you did very good!
It would be much easier if you will turn backing track up, but as far as I heard your timing was pretty good!
Good job!!!!
