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.

0:39 - this bends are not in the right pitch. 0:43 - still something a bit out of tune - sound like You hold the note which is bended a bit while You go to the vibrato. While vibrating the notes we should always go across the root note. 0:44...problems with the measure or how the guitar is tuned - something there (B note?) is out of tune. after going to 0:50 I'm sure - try to check your tune in positions. Damn...i hate to do this ...I'm feeling like a web troll but forgive me...it's for Your own good. Anyway going through some of Your REC takes I can say You doing pretty well and like the way Your playing is - clean and with confidence. Try to work on those little tuning issues. I wish I could take Your guitar to my hands because there are moment You play in those high positions and it seems like the pitch is ok...then in the nex bar You play something else and something is wrong witch the pitch. It could be felt especially on the B string. Cheers!

Hi man! As Darius said, this is a good lesson with one very important problem that is tuning and bending pitches. I think that it a priority now to work on bending and solve this issues.
