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 and thanx for trying out my lesson. Very good take. It's almost perfect. There are only some details worth thinking:

1. Vibarto - It's a very popualar habit but this kind of very agressive vibrato not always sound good...at least not in this composition.
2. Long notes - You cut a sustain of most long notes here. They are important because quick position shift is also and exercise
3. Guitar volume - it could be a bit louder comparing to backing track - we could catch more details

Well done!

Hi mate! This is a very tight take, you go with the backing very well. Darius marked really interesting details to fix, to improve this lesson. I note that your vibrato is not consistent so I recommend you to try this lesson:


And send me a PM if you need assistance with it.

Keep on working hard! wink.gif

Hey Amitai!

I do believe that Darius knows best in what regards this lesson, just focus on his suggestions and it should be sparkling perfect! I have nothing else to add wink.gif
