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! Your take is good but you need to adjust some things to make your take sound like a professional. These details are, timing, there are many moments where the licks are not 100% tight, most of the times your are a bit after the beat. Bending, many of your bends aren't reaching the correct pitch, they are close but not perfect. And finally, there are some low frequencies in you tone that are making it less clear, try lowering some frequencies around 100 and 300, and maybe boosting somewhere around 3000 and 5000 hz. Delay could be adding more to this problem, so if you can equalize the effect try also lowering the bass frequencies.

Hey mate! I think Gabe kind of summed it up here, so I will only add that you need to focus on these details he mentioned to get a clean good take. Don't rush, take it easy and you will play this piece in no time wink.gif

Great take, Tyson ! I think you did a good job. It's a beginner level lesson so I think you can be forgiven for not doing it 100% like a pro. Generally speaking, I think your bending was good. Just needs a bit more attention to get them more accurate but they're 90% there smile.gif

Try to match the timing of the phrases, especially in parts like like 0:32. You want to get that pre bend/release lick happening just a bit earlier so the last note occurs in the place where you started the lick in this video, if that makes sense ?

Good work, keep it up !
