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 man! This take is very good! I think you rushed it a bit due to being nervous and the vibrato is a bit rushed too, but otherwise, everything sounds good to me. Work on being relaxed and this is a guaranteed 10 smile.gif

Keep up the good work wink.gif

Hey ! Good take.. just work a little on timing and pitch of the bends. You already know yourself well, you said you get nervous and that will contribute to slightly rushing the phrases.

If you get nervous when filming, then the best time to consciously try to avoid rushing is during practise time, when there's no pressure. Try to make a conscious decision to slightly hang back and make sure you're 'on' the beat and not before it. If you can get better at this then when you next film something, you shouldn't have to think so much about staying on the beat, you'll just naturally be better at it because you've done all the work in your practise time smile.gif

Hi man! Nice video! I like your attitude on this one. I like your bending technique, it seems that you do 0 effort to do it. Regarding the things to fix, I agree with Ben and Cosmin, about your vibrato technique... it's too fast and not enough wide so it finally sounds like "nervous". And also concentrate on your timing to be able to play the licks tighter. Keep on working! wink.gif
