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 again mate!

I think that as an overall, you did a good job! Here are the moments which require your focus:

- the lick at 0:26 could sound tighter
- the bend at 0:36 is slightly out of pitch
- the licks at 0:44 and 0:53 sound a bit choked

If you take care of these, you will make a great track mate! Tell me isn't that playing position hindering you a bit? I tried it myself and it feels very cumbersome..

Keep rocking,

Hi mate! Nice job on this lesson. Cosmin already marked the most important parts that must be improved. Besides this sections, I think that there are also some other parts (for example the tapping) that will sound fuller and more precise with some more practice. You are on the right track with this one, just keep on playing it every day.

Hi there. I noticed quite quickly that your guitar is not quite in tune with the backing. This will make it harder for you to get your string bending in tune because I think that you were able to bend quite accurately but because your guitar was already out of tune you would have had to bend a little more to get the pitch right. This will give false feedback to your fingers if they learn to bend slightly too much to compensate. So try to make sure you're in tune before playing.. then you will know for sure whether your bending is accurate or not smile.gif

I would stick to Ben's point - tuning is more than important and guitars are so damn hard instruments to be perfectly in tune. This is why we learn some tricks or compromises through years. Please consider to recheck Your measure adjustment. Don't trust open strings while tuning...same with measure set-up. Often it's quite better for all the fretboard to tune while holding the finger somewhere in the middle like 7th fret. Also....sounds obvious but...old strings doesn't tune well in positions...that's a fact. I'm not suggesting Your strings are in a bad condition but if they're older than 3-4 weeks than the position tuning will go bad each week...smile.gif Your very pruductive lately smile.gif Nice to see this smile.gif
