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 mate! Congrats on your first recording!! I think that this is a big first step in your guitar career! smile.gif I like your attitude on this take, it's very powerful! Your playing is good but now it's time to adjust details to take it to a new level. First, your guitar sounds a bit out of tune, always check your tuning before you start a take. The second important thing to review here is the timing, there are phrases played different compared to the original take and some licks just sound imprecise. So, pay attention to timing and groove. Besides that, your vibrato could be more consistent as well as your fast alternate picking.
So, concentrate on these things and you will be ready to blow our minds! Keep on rocking! smile.gif

PS: I had the same guitar! biggrin.gif

Greetings Kevin, welcome to GMC !

This is a great introduction ! You clearly enjoyed playing this piece and you definitely do have the right attitude in your playing, as Gabriel pointed out. smile.gif

I would say to give some attention to developing your vibrato even more. You showed some good examples of it but they were a bit sparse. If you could incorporate it into your playing more then it will help those phrases sound more soulful and alive. The search bar is your friend in finding new lessons but I can help point you in the direction of some good vibrato lessons.

I also hear some tuning issues. Probably the G string being slightly sharp by the sound of it.

Overall, well done !!

You did well! A few things you can work on like vibrato is too weak it will change the way this song sound if you will add deeper and more stable vibrato! Also tuning issue I think it is second and third strings! Try to make sure that your guitar is in tune!
Also a few minor timing problems, you are rushing a little bit but it is an easy fix! Just use a metronome and practice it at a slow tempo and you will be fine! smile.gif

Hey Kevin! Congrats on your first REC take! Indeed, timing is essential, so focus on this isseu as well on the articulation elements - bending and vibrato, a bit more till you get them fluid and round. The metronome at a slow pace will help a lot as the guys have also stated wink.gif

Hope to see more takes from you man and if you need help, please go ahead and tell us!
