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.

This is much better my friend, well done.

Further improvements can be made in your bending technique. Those double stop bends sound like they're quite challenging for you.. bending 2 strings at once is more difficult than controlling just 1 string so this is to be expected.

Hi mate, good job! This new take shows an important improvement regarding timing and notes duration. The only thing that your take is lacking is the vibrato that Sinisa plays every time that he reaches a new bass note. As maybe you are not totally comfortable with this technique I recommend you to have a look at this lesson that covers that kind of vibrato: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Bens-Vibrato-Odyssey-5/
It would be very important to add it into your diary practice.

I think that you can move to another lesson but that you should play this one a few times every day to keep on evolving your groove skills. The lesson sounds good but it still lacks some groove and dynamics that will make it sound more organic and expressive. Listen to the original take focusing on this two details and then try to emulate them. It's the next step to adjust in your playing.

Keep on the good job! smile.gif

Howdy mate!

Definitely progress! Exactly as I commented in the previous take, I knew this take would be better, judging by the sample you have sent via PM.

The thing is that now, you need to focus on the details that the guys have pointed out:

- that vibrato that Sinisa executes and you seem to have left out
- the two string bending
- your guitar seems slightly out of tune - please do check it before recording wink.gif

As Gabi says, it would be a good thing to make a habit in rehearsing this one daily after focusing on solving these details. It will definitely sound different after that and you will also hone your grooving skills!

All the best and keep rocking!
