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.

Howdy there man!

Your take has a good timing and it is ok as an ensemble but I will ask you to focus on getting all the bends to reach the correct pitch smile.gif Try to be a little more violent with the vibrato - as Denes is in the original recording. Focus on this detail and let's see what you get wink.gif

Hi man! That's a good take! As Cosmin said, your playing need more aggression on this one! Everything sounds good and tight but it lacks feeling. Check some Hendrix and SRV videos to get inspiration and keep on playing this one making your bending and vibrato stronger and more aggressive.

Once again good timing and pretty clean playing smile.gif I think what Hendrix would advice You himself is..."Duuudeee...hit that guitar like a maaan do " smile.gif I think You could give more power from the whoe right hand like in the vintage period when the gain was tiny but guys like him put a lot pf strenght and a cranked volume to get that sound. Also...while You play on to neck pickup You shouldn't be afraid to the high end...It's very needed to compensate natural warm sound of the neck pickup and to give more attack and clarity smile.gif But..same as with skate punk You did a very good job and those advices could only help You get even better smile.gif

Very nice take!

My suggestion would be to utilize more left and right hand muting techniques. Notice how Denes holds his fretting hand a bit flat, this allows him to mute the strings he is not playing. Also slight palm muting in the right hand helps as well. These two techniques combined will allow you to play clean and avoid unnecessary noises. Part that requires most attention is one starting at 0:19. Denes in this part uses his fretting hand thumb to fret the note on the E string. This allows him to mute the strings even better with his left hand as the riff requires quite a bit of string skipping.

To get the exact vibe and dynamics - try hitting the strings harder and also dial in a sound with more treble frequencies and lower gain a bit. Harder picking (muting allows for this) + more trebly sound will result in snappy, cruncy strat tone!

Here are two lessons focusing on muting technique :

You are getting close with this lesson though - these details will help you make it perfect!
