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 Nava smile.gif This is a good take, although I'd suggest you to focus on the notes when bending and executing vibrato - some of them are not entirely reaching the correct pitch - it's just a bit under or above, but enough to be felt. A bit of slow practicing and listening to these aspects will turn this into a 10. You can try and record against the original so that you may see where things are a little bit out of pitch wink.gif

Hi Nava! Nice playing! You make this lesson sound really good! The only thing that you have to work on to sound like a pro are your bends. You don't reach the correct pitch in most of them so you should work on this technique.

Very nice take! You should practice it just a bit more so that you get comfortable with the solo. The crucial points to focus on here are bends and also playing more legato like. This means connecting notes smoother (using sustain) and not making small pauses in between (unless the lesson requires staccato way of playing).

Lessons I would recommend checking out that will help you with the bending technique :

* https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Beginn...String-Bending/
* https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Bending-Ballad/ (video parts 6-9 contain strict bending exercises)
