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 mate! This is a really good take! It's so close to perfection! Great tone, energy, vibrato, timing. It's very enjoyable to see you playing it. I just notice some bends that don't reach the correct pitch but nothing to serious, just to pay a bit of attention. wink.gif

Almost perfect ! Only one objection - vibrato is not open or "vibrant", as it should be ! Sometime you have to shorten it to not be out of tempo, on some places is there purely pro forma..Just pay attention on it, listen to Ben's performance but concentrating just on Vibrato !

Heeeey buddy! biggrin.gif Soooo, I see you got a new guitar - Les Paul, right? I agree with Gabe on the thought about those bends, but otherwise, this is very good! Are you coming at Slash's gig tomorrow? biggrin.gif
