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.

Hey Carmine! Great take mate! biggrin.gif I think that lowering the gain a tad, would do perfect justice to this piece wink.gif good timing nonetheless! When the gain will be lower, your playing will be even cleaner and on the spot! Keep up the great work!

Morning Carmine ! Your timing is sounding a lot better - good work smile.gif

The tone isn't quite right for this piece, a cleaner setting with low gain would work better as Cosmin said.

Try and use your strongest fingers like 1st, 2nd or 3rd to lead the notes in a melody. It's good that you can use your little finger but ideally you would only use it when you need to, like a stretchy lick. What I mean by this is that you're sometimes using the little finger and 3rd finger together to move around and play the melody. They usually don't provide quite the same level of accuracy with timing so try avoid it if you can. smile.gif

Hi Carmine! The take is good! Your timing is perfect most of the time, well done! The vibrato is not very important in this lesson 'cause it's based on some The Clash songs in which they don't use vibrato, however I notice that you added vibrato, so I must say that it should be more consistent. Besides this I agree with Cosmin and Ben about your tone, you definitely need to improve it.

I like this one! Nice job! You got way too much gain going on and you could use more confidence when playing! Other than that it's 10 from me! Good timing and I can tell you spent some time with this lesson!
