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 Anese, nice to find a new take from you for this lesson.

The work is going well, you can change chords smooth and you keep timing tight in the whole take. I think that there are basically two things to focus to master this lesson:

- Palm muted notes: The palm muted bass 8th notes are not very clear. Sometimes you play them a bit soft, and this make the overall take sound less groovy. Try to make those notes sound clearer and more defined.

- Vibrato: You are adding some vibrato as Sinisa does in the lesson but it's still a bit weak and irregular. Practice the lesson over the original take and try to put more emphasis and strength to those vibratos.

Besides these two details, I think that your take is very good, you are getting so close, keep on the great job! smile.gif

Hi dude, I agree with Gab's observations. This is the best sounding one yet. Your chord changes are so much smoother and your tonal control of the chords is better as well.

-The muted 8th notes. I also thought these were unclear. You're obviously doing it but maybe it's muted too much ? Or maybe you're not hitting the string hard enough ? One of those will be the answer.

-The double stop bends at 0:32... what Sinisa does is play them, THEN bend up and return it. What you're doing here is bending it up straight away so you don't get that sound of 3 movements. You're only getting 2 movements. Hopefully that makes sense ?

Very good work, you should be pleased smile.gif

Hey mate!

We have discussed this one long and hard in your mentoring thread and I think that you should focus on the vibrato in this lesson most of all, as it's the one thing that comes out the most.

I think that this lesson here: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Bens-Vibrato-Odyssey-5/

.. is the next one that we should start working on smile.gif

Keep rocking!
