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.

Hi man! Congratulations on your first REC take!! I'm proud. smile.gif
You are doing a good job with this lesson. The 3 things that I think you must improve on this one are timing, bending and dynamics.

Timing: There are many phrases that sound different compared with my lesson (ex: 00:05, 00:22). Practice the lesson over my playing and try to imitate the timing of each phrase.

Bending: You are not reaching the correct pitch in some of your bends, and most of them don't sound consistent. I recommend to start working on this lesson. HERE

Dynamics: There are some sections where you play the notes too soft, you should try to get a more consistent picking. (ex: 00:20).

Work on these things and you will get a 10 soon! Keep on the hard work. wink.gif

Hi Minks! Great that You've decided to join the REC section smile.gif Wellcome aboard smile.gif Besides what Gabriel wrote I think that You could play whole thing a bit harder and this could solve some problems - also those with timming. Anyway I think Your timming is not so bad - needs just a little improvement and overall flavour in playing is on a quite good level.

I can give You some basic advice for any rec take:

* Please make shure You've learned things exactly the way they are showed in the main lesson smile.gif

After grading this lesson I think You should try something that needs a heavy punch from the right hand - rock / metal simple rhythm with low gain set up. This could help You to get better control of Your dynamics.

Clean tone has this awesome dynamics / volume range. You can try to be a sound engeneer or a compressor for Your own playing.

Volume set up at this one seems to be ok. You probably noticed some notes are gone under the backing. Higher positions are always quiet comparing to the lower so You can play them a bit harder. This could also give more headroom for a bended notes sustain.

Try to think of guitar same as You do with speaking to someone else smile.gif If it's noisy outside You speak louder to be understood by the listening person. You don't do things like "whispering and screaming for a change"..You try to find some constant volume to let someone else understand what You're saying.

Of course it sound much simplier than it is in real but the basic concept is the same. There You do Yourself, the more professional You are and the less You have to put hope in the sound engeneer...smile.gif

Cheers! smile.gif
