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.

Original lesson: Beginner's Corner 21: String Bending by Bear Rose

My second take. Have to work on the rake a bit more. @Sinisa: I put more attention to the transition, is it better? @Gabriel: forgot to increase the backing track volume in the mixer, sorry

Hi Carmine! I can notice the improvements on this take! Those bends are more precise, and you look more comfortable playing them. I also see that you started adding some vibrato. That's great, continue working on it, and try to get a wider one. Always remember the mix comment! wink.gif

Hey Carmine, I agree with Gabe. As you may have noticed, your improvement is really visible with the amount of practice you put in these lessons. Focus on what me and the guys are telling you and you'll only improve more and more!

great take! The only suggestions I would make would be to continue working on those bends to get them to the exact pitch, and use not so bright of a tone. Maybe flip your selector switch on your guitar all the way up and use your neck pickup. And, like the others said, it would be good to hear a bit more of the backing track.

Overall.....very well done!
