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.

Generally, all the tones are in place. Ok, now, main thing , let me tell you something about vibrato technique : don't shake the guitar, shake your wrist and the relevant string, in the first place ! When you succeed bring out that, while guitar neck is almost motionless or like Muris independent gentle swing - you'll have a real sense for vibrato wink.gif ! Another thing: in some moments I saw and heard a slight desynchronization of left and right hand..

Good work ,keep practicing !

Nice job over some most important basics from this lesson. Now You need to work on some bends with vibrato. Most of bends are very close to the right pitch but some (like 0:14) out of tune. Being in Your shoes I would focus on practicing vibrated bends. It's hard to keep them in tune. I also advice to tune Your guitar to higher frets (not open strings only). Try to use similar finger pressure that You'll use in particular song / take. This will help to provide more precise tuning and will affect (i a good way) overall pleasure of listening smile.gif

You hand positions look nice - nothing to fix aside from the Vibrato technique (Sinisa mentioned). Well done smile.gif

Hey mate smile.gif I think the guys summed things up really well, so I would only underline that the vibrato and bends and generally, all the articulation elements should be taken care of properly for your next take smile.gif

Keep rocking!

Good take. I think you've got a good grasp of bending and vibrato, you just need to fine tune now smile.gif

As Darius suggested, some practise with bending and vibrato is a must !
