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,

great to see you in the REC zone again! The timing on this one is good, but the bends and vibrato need more precision. You are very, very close, but it's a matter of practicing it by being very focused on the pitches and generally staying in tune when vibrating a note. I would also suggest you to try recording against the original take in the lesson for a comparison - you can always figure out what's what after doing that wink.gif

Keep rocking,

Hi Lexman! I find some improvements on this take compared with the previous one. Your playing is tighter not and slowly it starts to sound deeper and with more feeling. However there is still more room for it because both bending and vibrato need more work. Your bending doesn't reach the correct pitch more of the times, and vibrato should be more consistent.

I recommend you to focus on this two techniques, and add 1 or 2 lessons that covers specially them.

Keep on the hard work!

To avoid repeating what guys said I will maybe give one tip.

When You vibrate make sure You always go back to point 0 (correct pitch). Now You sometimes keep the note out of tune through all the vibrating process. You make sort of "few cents" bend and vibrate the notes which makes it sound a bit higher in pitch. If You focus to alwasy reach "no tension" point on the fretted note, Your vibrato will become more in tune. Anyway...very good take smile.gif
