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 mate! You learnt each part of this lesson very well. The issue here is timing, I think that you are before the bit in many parts of this take. This can happen when we are a bit insecure with the licks or riffs and as a signal and anxiety or insecurity we start the parts a bit earlier. So my suggestion is to keep on practicing this lesson, maybe using the slower backings and concentrate on playing it tight. Also adjust the bends that appear in the last licks of the solo.

Hi Dave smile.gif Great to see You're back with Your REC takes smile.gif I think You need to work a bit more on that middle part, somewhere after 0:16
Mostly on precission and timming.

The one thing I noticed and was probably the thing the was most annoyingfor me is how You vibrate the A note on the 14th fret, G string. On some of Your previous takes You did huge improvement on vibrato. I think You just forgot for a moment about it smile.gif)) I also miss a bit flow in this take...solo part seems to be a bit too "square" and I'm sure You can do more than this after watching many of Your takes smile.gif

Hey there, man and welcome back to the REC zone!

I agree with what Gabe and Darius spotted and my suggestion is to focus on becoming aware of the track balance while also listening to the guitar in the original take - slow things down and try to achieve that balance at a slow speed. Now, articulation seems to be a little nemesis for you - just focus on using the right set of skills, until it becomes a natural reaction smile.gif

Keep rocking dude!
