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.

Very good take Alex ! Your bending is really accurate in terms of pitch. One thing that I think needs improvement is when you bring the bends down. As it is, I would say you let the bends down too quickly and it seems like you don't have as much control over that aspect as much as you do when you bend them up. So, I would practise releasing bends and making it happen more slowly. You want to be able to decide how fast or slow it is. smile.gif

I love your tone, could you tell me what gear you use to get it ?

Hey there! I am honored you chose this lesson! I agree with Ben most definitely on the bends - try practicing slowly so that you will control the whole process and also, in the beginning, those quirky little bends are not too defined, you might want to work on them as well. Once you get these details under your thumb, this piece will get a totally different vibe and flow! Looking forward to see it shine in the next take!

Hi man! This is a very enjoyable take, I agree with Ben about all the things that he said... not only about the bends, also regarding your tone that is really good. Keep on the good job! smile.gif

I like this take! You did a very good job! Your sound was very good and bends are perfectly in tune! I agree with Ben about timing when you are bringing bend down I would suggest to practice only bending with a metronome and this issue will be fixed in no time!
