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.

V-Man, I love the way you make your videos !! That audience at the end ! laugh.gif

Very solid take although I still think your timing could be stronger for the ascending section and the blues bend when the solo starts.

You play the lick at 0:41 with triplets rather than straight 16th notes, so it has a slower sound.. but it still works though smile.gif

All in all, good stuff man - it rocks !

Cool take and video production was very nice as well!!! As Ben said you played triplets instead of 16th notes I would suggest to work on this part at a slower tempo so you will get the right feel of 16th notes! It might take some time but you will improve your hand coordination a lot and will improve picking technique! Other than that this take was very solid 9 from me

Good playing man! I just could add to the other instructors comments that you could improve a bit more your vibrato. Compare it with Ben (our Vibrato master) and you will notice what I mean. Keep on rocking! wink.gif
