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 man. This does sound stronger that the first take. Your rhythm is more solid. The 4th arpeggio shape could be smoother.. the notes still sound quite separate.

You need to work on string bending. The bend at 0:41 will sound better if you bend up and hold it whilst you use your 4th finger to play the note on the B string. If you watch Gab it will help you identify how to do it. The bend at 0:59 also needs the same attention.

It's getting better though ! smile.gif

Hi mate! As Ben said, the improvements are very notorious. You have been doing a good job. The clean arpeggios sound tighter now and the overall take is sounding better. The next things to improve now are: Timing in the solo part, and dynamics + groove in the whole lesson. Put your eye on that and you will master this one. wink.gif

Very good at the beginning - your feel the groove and it's visible smile.gif It's a progress and it's getting close. You bending pitch issue seems to repeat. Maybe just a matter of experience (sort of string tension memory while bending) but at this point You should not give Yourself any tolerance to make it progress quicker. I would go for some bending lessons right now. Anyway Your overall playing is getting better and better smile.gif
