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! Awesome take smile.gif Very accurate picking. I have only two things You could think about:

1. Picking direction - in the 3rd part picking direction is switched comparing to the lesson smile.gif You kept picking starting from downstroke but it should be the opposite.

2. Vibrato - You tend to overbend notes. Vibrated notes sound like they are a few cents higher with their pitch.

Aside from those two I really enjoy Your take. Great job smile.gif

I couldn't agree more with my great colleagues!

Its all very good except the vibrato. Believe it or not:

Vibrato & Bendings are one of the most difficult things on the guitar!
Mostly some YOUNG shredders sometimes don't give enough attention to it because they thing speed is more important.
NO, its is not! Your vibrato (and bending) is like your personal voice! If you don't have a personal voice no one would recognize you. ;-)

I'm sure if you work more on it(be patient!), your next video will surprise us even more. ;-)
