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 there ! Wellcome to the REC section. This is Your first approach am I right ?smile.gif

Let's get to the point. Same as some other players who were doing this lesson You have a timming problems. I will have to repeat what I said to them. This is not an easy one to keep the best timming, because there is no drums or any other percussive pulse in the backing but there is some tolerance range to fit in.

0:38 wrong note tongue.gif

Basic thingsare done. Correct the note and work on the timming and should be much better smile.gif Cheers !

Hey there Sumit!

Sounds like a fair take to me, but here are my suggestions in order for you to improve this one:

- that bend at 0:17 - it reached the pitch, but the timing was not perfect - I would also suggest you to use the ring finger and the middle finger when bending, for more support.
- 0:37 - there should've been another note there biggrin.gif hehe
- try to put more feeling, when playing - at this point, it is very close to being correct, but since it's a simple piece, it needs more interpretation and flow, so that you may bring out the best in it.

Keep rocking mate!

Hi man! You are on the right track with this one. I can notice that you are doing some bends longer than the original lesson, for example the one at 00:17 and the one at 00:35. In this two bends, the release should be heard too. Work on it and on the things that the other instructors suggested and you will master this one. wink.gif
