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.

Original lesson: Funky Ballad by Piotr Kaczor

Again, such a lovely lesson from Piotr. I used slightly different sound settings with some little gain as this guitar does not sustain really well naturally, but i thought it fits this track as well. I hope you guys like it anyway :)

This is fantastic!! I enjoyed your whole take as If I were watching a guitar solo concert. Your tone and your feeling are so tasty on this take and there are not really important things to mark on this one. I think that your guitar doesn't keep the pitch very good in the higher frets but that's not your fault. Congratulations!! This is a 10. smile.gif

Hey mate! The tone is awesome...same as Your feel of dynamics! smile.gif Very good take overall. Found some little tuning issues. For example with this double bend at the beginning. In this kind of phrasing lesson the timming could be a bit off due to specific type of playing and this is something that's not considered being bad smile.gif Really good approach. Congratulations!

That is an excellent piece of guitar playing, my friend ! cool.gif

The last pre bend/ release was a bit off pitch but I don't care.. that was a master class in control, vibrato and feel. Well done !

Perfect take indeed! Fantastic interpretation, your tone is more distorted that mine, but it fits perfectly. Love your phrasing and musicality. Congrats, my friend! smile.gif
