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 friend! This is a great lesson to practice expression and feeling. There are some things to have in mind to improve this one, so here we go with my comments:

- Your guitar is a bit out of tune. Check out your tuning or if your strings are too old.

- Bending technique becomes a nightmare when the guitar isn't tuned correctly. There are many bends that don't reach the correct pitch, for example at 00:36, 00:47, 00:50 and 1:09.

- There is a wrong note at 1:09 and something sounds bad at 1:27, check it out.

- Your vibrato becomes weak in the last section (higher frets) and there are many unwanted noises appearing there. Try to mute the strings that you are not playing.

That's all! I hope that my comments help to focus on the things that you need to improve.

Hey mate wink.gif

I'm just here to grade, as we have been heavily discussing this one in your mentoring program/practice schedule conversations.

Keep rocking,

This is a beautiful tune and a huge challenge is to repeat all the details - colors / articulation / mood. Gabriel pointed essential fixes and Cosmin is working with You in Your thread so I'll only add that You could consider using less drive for this kind of playing and less fx (reverb in this case)
