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.

Hi Rhida! Good job with this technique! Your bending is getting better and better after each new take. This means that you are going on the right track. There is off course more work to do, to feel more comfortable with the technique, but I can say that the pitches are more precise now and the motion is better (more from your wrist).

Your vibrato technique is still weak so you have to focuse a bit more on it, as well on timing that starts to have some problems at 00:26. Those phrases are not tight with the rhythm so remember to think on it too while you play the lesson.

There is nothing more to add, just keep on the great job! wink.gif

This is sounding a lot better.

The pitches of your bends are much more accurate now.

Your hand co-ordination in the later stage has also improved.

You just need to improve your timing in the second half. You're still moving to the next notes too quickly. Aside from that you've done a great job !

Hey there amigo!

I think that there's not too much to add aside what the guys have already pointed out, so please focus on working on this lesson a bit more, as usual, by implementing the suggestions and paying attention to get as close as possible to the intended pitches.

As for the timing, practicing with the original recording will get you closer to the groove, pulse and timing of the lesson as it should be, so try this technique. You are a very ambitious player and your progress is visible each time - keep it up like this and you'll grow faster and faster wink.gif

All the best!
