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.

Hi man! That's a good take! Well done. I can note that you are still a bit uncomfortable with the vibrato when you are doing the full bends but it will be fixed with some training. Your left hand need to have more strength and that be fixed with more practice. I also noticed that you played some notes with normal vibrato while Ben uses classical vibrato. This is not wrong but I wanted to do the observation.
Keep on the good job! smile.gif

Hey Chandra, I agree with Gabe, a bit more work should get you a lot better at the vibrato and bending - just stay focused on the pitch and note roundness wink.gif

keep rocking mate

I know it might look like I'm being too generous but I really do believe that this is as good as stuff you hear from many pro guitarists so it still sounds like a 10 to me smile.gif

You did a good job! You still need to work on your vibrato and bending the good trick to develop your bends is to use a tuner and try to get string up to the perfect pitch! It's a very good exercise that will help you to get perfect bends!
