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 mate! Congrats on your first REC take! You did a very good job! Your tone sounds very close to the original lesson and you have a good feeling on this take. Let me give you some comments to have in mind to improve this one:

- You missed a muted sweep at 00:06. It gives a very cool feeling that arrangement.
- There are some timing issues at 00:24, and some other parts as the last lick. It's not an easy lesson to play tight so practice it a bit more over the main video to adjust details.
- Your bends in general aren't 100% precise, work on this technique to reach the note with more confidence.

That's all from me! Keep on the good job! wink.gif

Hey Volker! Congratulations on your first REC!

Aside from Gabe's spot on observations, I must add that the more conscious time you will invest in this lesson and the more attention you will pay to the details, the better you will become. At this point, your timing is a bit shaky, but the tone is good. Focus on the bends and articulation elements in general and you will get closer and closer!

I like that mellow, warm tone but there is still much to improve in this lesson. Please always try to be as close as possible to the original lessons. Details are what's most important and sometimes those details are the profits You could get from particular lesson. As Cosmin and Gabe wrote - timming needs some wourkout - from the other side I know that keeping the tmming with only a guitar as a backing track is more difficult than playing with drums or metronome. It needs more attention.

Congrats on Your first REC take smile.gif
