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: Rock Solo - Beginner by Trond Vold

my attempt to cover this lesson.

Hello again !

You're quite good at shifting around and putting phrases together. The 2 areas of improvement here need to be string bending and timing.

For the string bending, you're bending just a little bit too short of the required pitch, so the notes are flat. To make this better, just practise any string bending and try to get them up to the required pitch.

Timing of the phrases. For many of the phrases, you're either doing them too late or too early so try playing along with Trond's solo too smile.gif

Hi man! It's great to find this lessons completely learnt by you, this attitude of hard work will make you improve your playing very fast. As Ben said the problems here are timing, vibrato and bending. Check out the lessons link that I suggested in the other REC take and keep on working! wink.gif

Hey again smile.gif I have to stress the importance of bending here - try to get the accurate pitch for each bend in the proper time and this will become a good take. Keep up the hard working habit!
