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! Great to find a new take of this one! You are working very hard and we can really note it. Congrats! Your technique is getting better and better. I have just some general comments about this one:

1. Your vibrato is now wide and strong. Be sure to le the note ring first and then add the vibrato, it must be a natural part of the note. That's why you also have to make it more regular. This will be achieved with more days of practice.

2. You are using more fingers movement than wrist movement with your right hand. You won't have problems with this lesson but that can bring problems if you want to play faster stuff. Have a look at this thread: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=42828

3. The overall take could sound more groovy, once you feel more comfortable with the techniques like bending and vibrato.

That's all! Keep on the good job!

Hello again you hard working man!

First and foremost, your ambition is a great example of how people should work when they want to achieve something, second, I agree with Gabriel's observations and I would add that regarding the vibrato, you should focus on trying to hear the vibrato as a rhythmic structure in itself - this perception mode will automatically set your vibrato into place and make it sound more even. Try the following exercise for getting better vibrato control: choose a note that you play in this song - it needs to sound good against the backing track and vibrate it as you would describe 8th notes and then as 16th notes - can you do that? If it sounds a bit confusion, write me a PM and we can work it out!

You're very very close to pass my friend. Aside from what guys said I can only add that You have to do everything that's possible to avoid unwanted strings ringing under the solo notes - like a t the end of this track.

About what Gabe said...I'm not shure I would agree with him. Fingers movement is very comfortable and relaxed. For me it work best when the speed picking is a combination of wrist and fingers movement. In my particular case it gave great results. But as You can listen to Gab's playing he also nailed it so the choice is up to You. I just wanted To say I wouldn't treat this as something wrong because You're using the combination and not "fingers only" movement which is a bit too soft smile.gif
