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 man!

It's great to see that you are so active in the forum and the REC zone! This lesson is all about smoothness and expressiveness, so please focus on widening your vibrato and trying to involve the dynamics in your playing - notice Piotr's moments - louder, softer - experiment and try to mimic his phrasing as much as possible.

Keep rocking!

Hello again! smile.gif Aside from many things You did properly there is one huge issue - vibarato. It needs overall rethinking not just for this lesson. Vibrato comes out directly from the left hand wrist. In Your cae it look very nervous - like You are not completely sure how to make the string to vibrate smoothly. It's a very common issue. I advice to take a look at some vibrato lessons from the basics

Very first lesson from the "vibrato" search resuklts, made by Ben is very good for this one:

Hi Ricky! Great to see you working! I think that Cosmin and Darius have already given excellent feedback about this lesson. The key is on vibrato, feeling, and dynamics. I also note that there are some pitch issues, some out of tune parts, even I think that your guitar is a bit our of tune so check it out.

Keep on the hard work mate!
