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 Tflava! You've already learnt all the sections of this nice lesson. Now it's time to adjust the most difficult licks in which some notes doesn't sound or you have timing issues. (for example at 00:35). Also your bends needs to be more precise, in most of them you don't reach the correct pitch. And besides that I would like to add that you have to pay attention to the tricky slides that this lesson has at 00:21 and 00:50.

One thing that I noted is that your right hand movement is not as I would recommend when you play Alternate Picking. I can see that you are moving your fingers while the best would be to start the motion from your wrist. Please read the tips of this lesson:


And contact me if you need some more assistance with it.

I think You have an idea of some flaws - You probably felt them while playing. You made some cool progress with Your vibrato. I like that You're not afraid to hit hard. But try to hold the pick a bit tighter at the moments there are more notes - it seems like the pick is flipping at this might be a reason for some not precise notes.

Hey mate smile.gif I think the guys pointed out the important things, so in order for me not to repeat anything they said, I will only tell you that your thumb will be of great assistance when bending - I notice that you are holding it in the air (example - 0:55), which is not good at all. The thumb is the pivot around which a bend will occur at its best. Please let me know if you understand what I am talking about, by sending me a PM, ok?

Keep rocking,
