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 Krakou! Nice playing on this lesson. I like your feeling and tone, there is something behind both things that made me enjoy a lot your take. There are things to have in mind for future practice:

- Vibrato: Sometimes it's a bit weak. Remember that you can use other fingers to help the one that is doing the vibrato in the played fret. This will give you some more strength to make vibrato wider. Try to imitate Muris agression when he makes vibrato.

- Timing and picking: Those licks starting at 00:29 should sound tighter, there are little timing issues and your picking is not 100% consistent there.

So work on these details an you will get the most from this lesson. Keep on the good job!

Hey there friend! I like Your warm tone! Some of the observations of things to fix not only for this take but for overall playing would be:

1. More attention for bending pitch (most of Your bends are a bit too low comparing to the reference pitch)
2. Right hand tone range. This one I'm only guessing but if most of Your playing has a consistent, soft touch then there is a need to work on this as well. I mean the dynamics range. I would like to see some more of Your playing with this tone to make sure I'm right...or wrong. That's why I say I'm guessing. For this particular take I can't say it's wrong because it fit's the track. I only think I would explore the dynamics range a bit more since the tone You choose gives You ability to do this. In the original lesson Muris uses more gain and different overdrive family but I would not necessary stick to the original lesson tone because this composition can sound great on the crunch tone as well. I like the tone decision You did smile.gif I'm only wondering about Your future playing and something we call tone from the hand. If You would like to clear this topic You can contact me just to talk a bit more about Your other playing so we could judge if the issue is there or is not smile.gif Nice touch BTW smile.gif

Hello there man!

I agree with the observations that Gabi and Darius have stated and I will only sum things up:

- focus on the right hand dynamics - how soft or hard you hit each note, that means. If you want consistency, you need to learn how your hands function in order to deploy the right dynamics at the right moment.

- articulation - as Gabi said, more fingers provide more strength smile.gif Don't use just one finger, but vibrate with your wrist while having your fingers get a good grip on the string. You will see how much control you will get smile.gif
