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,

You are very close!

I think that everything has the right groove and timing and the only details that should be fixed, would be the following:

- 0:05 the vibrato doesn't appear in your take
- in the end the bends occurring at about 0:33 could be more exact and closer to the intended pitch

Try to implement these fixes and the take should be good!

Keep rocking!

Hi mate! Congrats on the improvements! It's been just 5 days since your previous take and the changes are notorious. Well done!

The chords have now the right duration and everything sounds tighter. However there are still two things to improve from the list of my previous comments: vibrato and 8th muted notes. Keep on practicing focusing on these two things and also trying to make the chord changes smoother (practice and repetitions are the secrets for this).

Keep on the hard work!

Hi man, this is a definite improvement.

To be fair to Anese, it was my suggestion that he left the vibrato off and concentrated on getting the correct sound with the chords. If a player hasn't developed a good vibrato yet then often it can make it worse to have a poorly formed vibrato as opposed to having no vibrato at all. So that's my fault, guys smile.gif

In terms of rhythm and execution, you've got the right flow happening.

The out of tune issues hurt my ears a bit though, I'm surprised the guys didn't mention it !!!???? tongue.gif
