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 Bill! Nice take! The overall sounds good! I have some comments to have in mind:

+ There are some little timing details in the beginning but then your playing becomes tighter. (remember to concentrate on rhythm)
+ I would be good if you try to emulate the lesson's tone. This is a lesson that has distortion and that makes the playing a bit more difficult because you have to avoid unwanted noises that appear everywhere when you play a solo with distortion.
+ Add more vibrato.
+ Try to keep your left hand position like Muris does at 00:30 when you play 3 notes per string licks. This will make your playing more fluently and you hand faster.

That's all mate! Keep on working! smile.gif

I liked this take a lot! Gabriel suggested a lot of great things and I totally agree with him!
The only thing I would add is practice with a click at a slow tempo this way you will develop a good muscle memory and will sound very solid! Overall great job!!!!

Hello sir!

I think Gabe spotted all the important aspects and I will add my observation - try to play against the original recording in order to see and feel the exact timing and phrasing that Muris has - this will offer better understanding over the whole lesson smile.gif

Practice slowly and patiently and there's no doubt you'll nail this!

All the best,

Great take Bill ! Your bending is sounding brilliant.. in fact, your whole playing has improved in just the time you've been here. I think that Scottish water must be special !! smile.gif

Gab's given some good advice so that's given you some more to be getting on with.. good work, it's really showing !! smile.gif
