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 amigo!

What I can say is that you are really close to nailing this very nicely smile.gif This lesson as all the others in the series, are accentuating the interpretation side a big lot, so I will focus on this as well:

- your vibrato should be wider
- your dynamics - how equal each note is in comparison to others in terms of volume and intensity, should be more even

Focus on these and you should have a great take!

Nice rendition! Your playing is tight and now it's time to give the overall take more feeling. As Cosmin said, the secret here is to work on your vibrato and dynamics. As a complement to this lesson I recommend you to give a try to this one:


Keep on practicing this lesson to keep on feeling more comfortable with the phrases and be able to focus more the things that we marked. Also try to put your guitar louder in the mix next time.

You have a good touch to such an emotional playing - that's sure smile.gif I have no big complains about this take. It's a piece of good job. I will sustain Cosmin's thoughts about vibrato - You can make it a bit slower but wider. Also in the second part of original lesson You can hear Piotr is getting sharper tone. It's not only because of the volume knob release (more drive) but the picking itself. You can try to make experiments. Good job!
