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.

Original lesson: The Voice Of Your Guitar by Cosmin Lupu

I need to work on my articulation: vibrato and bends. And this is a perfect piece to practice articulation :) Enjoy playing it a lot.. Looking forward to your feedback!

Hey Mert! You know my thoughts as we have been closely working on this together, so I will just grade and let the other guys speak their heart out smile.gif You need to polish it a bit in respect to interpretation, but I like the vibrato and the way in which you let notes breathe!

Keep rocking!

Hi Mert! Good job on this lesson! You are getting very close. As you commented, there is still room to improve your phrasing on this take. You should focus on vibrato and bending, and work on more melodic lessons to continue experimenting with both techniques. Also I think that your guitar tone could be improved, I would go for a warmer sound for a lesson like this one. By the way you are doing a good job, keep on rocking!

Very good advice from Gab. You could try some more phrasing lesson. You technique is already pretty good - just a bit more practice to get perfect precision but the skills You have at the moment are great though smile.gif It's visible when You focus on bends pitch and You've got descent pitch hearning. Somehow a few notes still keep a bit off the pitch. Maybe it's even just a matter of a few more takes, more focus and some playback volume adjustments to make sure You have a good pitch reference smile.gif

Some more phrasing lessons will make You feel more comfortable over playing less notes. Players who are used to dense playing very often have problems to not "over react" while playing slow runs...for example many of them does very nervous vibrato. This lesson is great to develope thos skills smile.gif Congrats on great take smile.gif
