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.

Hello Renan!

This is indeed a great lesson and I think you did a great job with it - what a tone! I like it very much!

The only things that i think you should be focusing on a little bit more are some of the bends which don't sound as they should - especially the ones around 0:42 and 0:52-0:53

Keep rocking!

Cosmin nailed the judgment of Your work. Sound is good. Range of dynamics also. No particular timing problems. Bends are the weakest point but they're not that much disturbing to completely destroy pleasure of listening. I feel some little tuning issues. If
I could suggest anything...when You play harmonies in positions sometimes is more effective to tune guitar on the frets. For example tune the open E1 sting, then B2 on the 5th fret, G3 - 9th fret , D4 - check on 5th and 7th fret, A5 on the 7th and E6 - on the 5th and 7th fret. Very often open strings are not worth as much trust as for the whole neck tuning. Cheers!

What a beautiful lesson by Stephane. I think that you are on the right path with this one but you have to concentrate mainly on your bending and timing (just some phrases). There are many bends that don't reach the correct pitch so you should work on bending lessons like this one:
