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 there man!

I think you did a pretty good all around job with this one and the only things that I'd add here are these:

- those bends in the first part are still not there - I know they're a pesky pain, but you still need to work on them - have you tried what I've suggested in your thread smile.gif

- I think you could add a little bit more gain in your tone in order to 'tie' the notes together

That being said - I will give you a 8 just because I know you can make those bends work - I'd love to know you'd be up to fight for a ten smile.gif

Honestly very pleasant to listen. Bends are still something to work on but keep in mind that Your very close to correct pitch and some of other students with bends issues were truly out of tune. You're in the tolerance range and this doesn't destroy the pleasure of listening it all as solid song so for my You passed smile.gif As for the gain level ... it's Cosmin's lesson so I will not dare to argue about that but i would keep it like it is smile.gif I believe You could do those little details and deserve the highest rate smile.gif

Nice take man! Good tone and feeling. The problem here are bends which don't reach the correct pitch as Cosmin and Darius said. Work on it and you will master this lesson!

These are some cool lessons for bending practice:
