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 Michael! Good playing on this one! There are some little details to fix regarding the pitch of some of those bends but the overall is very close. Also I think that your vibrato could be a bit more natural, it starts a bit aggressive and it makes it sound nervous. Let the note sound and then add the vibrato, as Ben (our bends master) does in his video.

Hey man! I think your take is good as an ensemble and as Gabe said, the thing that you would need to focus most on, is your vibrato. It needs to be wider and more rounded - I also noticed this in your take on the Nocturnal Vision lesson smile.gif

Keep rocking!

I can only add that You could also watch out for the unwanted noises between the notes. Sounds like You hit some unnecessary strings. Try to clean that out smile.gif
