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!

Wow, looks like you have a very nice presentation for your video here biggrin.gif

This piece is very demanding because it has a lot of details that need focus in order for it to stand out smile.gif Overall. you've got the structure, but there are phrases which are being rushed, bends which are not in pitch and the vibrato which is too fast and too aggressive. Please try to record over the original take, in order to notice the differences. Listen to the superposed recordings and then try to come up with a version that aims as much as possible towards the original feeling of the piece.

Keep rocking mate and I am looking forward to see the next take!

Hi Jeroen, That's a very good looking video! Good job!

You've learnt this fantastic lesson but now it's time to polish details to make it sounds good. The lesson has many pitch and timing issues to this are the two things your should focus in the next guitar sessions. Work on your bending technique, as well as your vibrato to give a nice feeling to your playing that goes with the groove. Practice the lesson over the original to be sure that you are playing the phrases tight.

That's all, you are on the right track, just keep working!

Hey man! You got the main structure of the lesson but things like timming and bending pitch needs some more focus. Keep assigned to Cosmin's advices since it's his lesson and He will be able to help You best with al the details.
