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,

I see that you are faring better with reaching the intended pitches, but they sound a bit rigid - you need to make the notes sound smoother, in order for this take to reach its full peak.

Focus on that and I am sure you will do a good job - also, you can record/practice against the original recording to make sure you are there wink.gif

You proved us that You hear the pitch very well. Because the lesson is focused on bends pitch You pass for me...but there is still much to do to make it nice and smooth with a bit more flavour - levels 9-10.

Just curious...have You ever thought about Your pick grip? Your right hand looks a bit weird. This "no angle" pick position might give You some trouble while trying to play fast and hard

Hi Marcin! I can notice that your bending technique is slowly evolving so you are on the right track. However this is just a first step. The second half has many bends that don't reach the correct pitch and you still don't look comfortable with the technique. I recommend you to continue working on this one and start any other lesson that also includes bending.

keep on the hard work! wink.gif
