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.

Hello Amitai!

Congrats on a nice take man! We've been working on this one together, so you already know my thoughts smile.gif

What I'd add is that you still need to widen that vibrato a bit more, but sometimes, it has a very classic bluesy vibe in its actual form - I think its more of a matter of taste here. But experimenting never hurt anybody, did it? smile.gif

Keep rocking!

Hi Amitai! Good playing on this take! I enjoyed your playing on this lesson, there is nothing sounding bad there. As Cosmin said, there is still work to do but you are definitely on the right track. The things that I noted is that your vibrato can be wider and more expressive, and your bends more consistent. Also, more days of practice will let you play this one more relaxed and with more energy, because you won't have to think too much and you will be able to feel it more.

That's all from me. Keep on rocking.

Man..You definitely feel the blues smile.gif Good dynamics in Your right hand. Seems like You did a good job with a Cosmin's guidence. Only thing that could be improved is a tuning and max one or two faster licks that were a bit not precise. Well done! smile.gif
