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.

Nice playing Capasso 2300 wink.gif
i have some suggestions for you:
1. pay attention on the ring and the middle finger from your left hand.some bending notes are a little bit out of tune min 0:37 (the middle finger), min 0:52 (the middle finger), min 1:00 (the ring finger)
2. be carefull with the volume in you inears because, a higher volume and a low frequency of the guitar can denaturate the perceived pitch
3.work on some sliding notes that are unsure.
A good lesson choise for developing the bending and vibrato tehnique. Keep on the good work!!! smile.gif

Hello mate!

I see that my friend Marius has already given you great suggestions about the details! The tone could also use a bit more gain, in order to get closer to the original recording.

Now, try to incorporate his suggestions in the lesson by practicing slow in order to have control and you'll nail them in no time wink.gif

Keep rocking!

Hi Capasso! This is a very good choice for working on feeling. It makes you focus on bending, vibrato and dynamics. I think that you are on the right track but there are things that needs more attention in order to improve this take: bending's pitch, tone (a warmer and more sustained tone would be great), more dynamics and timing (Sometimes you tend to play a bit before the bit).
