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.

Hey there Nava!

Technically this take is very good and you have managed to get a good grasp on the pitches of the bends - there is one around 0:18 which is a bit under tongue.gif

Now listening to Piotr's take, I think that the next step in this lesson would be to focus on dynamics and interpretation - you know the parts, but you should try to emulate Piotr's way of making this piece expressive - picking harder or softer, vibrating with more strength and all the nice expression elements which are so often encountered in this piece.

Keep rocking!

Man You're getting better and better! Cosmin has a good point at this one. Very nicely done - nice and clean and deserves high rating but...I would give a ten if You could try to "let Your emotions lead You" - a bit less focusing on doing this perfect in the technical aspects and "fly away" in case of emotions smile.gif Just a little thought but You take is awesome anyway smile.gif

Hi Nava! Good playing on this one! Your timing, technique and tone are very good one this one. Both Cosmin and Darius already said the only thing that is lacking. Go for it and keep on rocking. smile.gif
