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! Excelent job! This is something that you have to train as much as technique. I think that you are on the right track exploring the fretboard. You still have to be able to create more catchy melodies, more defined "answer" & "question" phrases, and give more variations regarding rhythm but you are going for that! Learning licks at GMC will also help you to incorporate more complex phrases and ideas.

I can't grade this video since it's an improvisation. Keep on the hard work! wink.gif

As Gabe said, we can't grade this, since it's an improvisation, but, I agree about the fact that you are on a good path with your improvisation skills. Sometimes, you are resting too much on the same note and you should work a bit more on direction - that means, thinking in terms of how you phrase, in such a way that you can give your improvised lines a definite direction and also, try to create a melodic theme that can be recurrent in the track and that can also be developed! smile.gif

Keep rocking mate!

I think the the first half melodic concept is a good starting point - just need some polishing. It's more "vocal like" which i a thing that I personally like. Now it's time to analyze how to colorize Your playing smile.gif Also some notes are out of scale smile.gif But it's very good You start to work on Your improvising skills .Many good worldknown solo were just a studio improvisation smile.gif
