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 DG! Great playing as usual, especially on a pretty demanding lesson such as this one smile.gif I would only say that the bends are a bit rigid, otherwise, the take is good as an ensemble - try to smooth out the bends and the 10 is yours to have wink.gif

D to the G !

Nice, ripping take ! The bend at 0:16 was a bit harsh and some of the others have a tendency to sound sharp which is something you might want to look at.

The last picked run also doesn't seem quite right in some way, can't put my finger on it.. but aside from those points it's all good stuff, man ! cool.gif

Hi again Greg! This is a very tricky lesson and you played it very well. There are some little things to fix like some bends and also the fast AP sections but with a few days of practice you will master it perfectly.
