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, I can notice some improvement but you still have to work on the things that we detailed on the previous take. You tapping is better now but the sweep picking lick could be tighter, and there are some bends that don't reach the correct pitch. You should isolate these bends and play first the target note and then do the bend to see if you can reach the correct pitch. Practice this as an exercises every day and your bending technique will be more precise.

Gabe pointed most important stuff. I think You're at the point where You should focus on each technique separetly. Maybe try to start from the unwanted strings noise. Just found this old but actuall lesson:

Hey Tim!

The guys pointed the things out - you need more control over what you play and that can only be achieved with focus and practice at a slow tempo. Give yourself the necessary time and keep in mind that great progress needs well invested time, ok?

Keep rocking!
