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 mate smile.gif

This take sounds pretty good, I say. Your articulation skills are good, even though sometimes, your vibrato is a bit uncertain - for instance, see min 0:20 and there are some notes which are too weak to be heard - such as: min 0:14

Otherwise, I think this is all that you need to focus on, for a great take indeed! smile.gif

Keep rocking man!

Problems with this kind of lessons is that it's hard to judge the timming while:
1. There is no even click/pulse -
2. Very often in such a smooth playing we play a bit behind or in front of the beat. That's just the way it work for emotional playing

So...I won't judge the timming smile.gif

I like the tone and Your soft touch to the lesson. It clean but it need some work with notes that were muted while they should sustain (I mean something went wrong after You hit the note like 0:23-0:24)

Currently You biggest issue is over-bend while doing vibrato. From what I see You know exactly how the vibrato should be done (You don't need explanation) but You need to focus on the center pitch of vibrato. In Your case it's a bit above the correct pitch. But as I said - the movement itself is correct smile.gif

Well done. Keep up the good work smile.gif

This is a nice take and you have a lot of potential !

Cosmin and Darius's advice is spot on. Your vibrato is good but it needs more guidance and attention to achieve great status smile.gif

Take care not to over bend the note too much.. on a faster rock track you can get away with it but on a ballad like this it's more noticeable.

You might be interested in exploring another type of vibrato as well. Side to side, or classical style vibrato as I call it. It might add more tools to your arsenal and give you more to work with when you need some expression. If you add it to what you can already do then you'll be a master of vibrato one day !

Hi Lex! Good take! My friends already marked the main things to work on this lesson. You still have to do an adjustment to your vibrato technique, to make it more consistent. I also noted that your guitar sounds a bit out of tune in the higher frets when you play string 2. You have a very good ear and you fix it with a very small bend / vibrato but it would be good if your guitar tuning is better.

That's all. Just concentrate on your vibrato technique. Keep on the hard work! wink.gif
