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!

Technically , this lesson is well played, but some of the notes, such as the one at 0:12 sound a bit flat to me. Maybe it's the guitar? Some tuning issue, or you haven't reached the pitch with a tiny bit? Anyway, I would totally suggest you to work on the expression side of this lesson, in order to reap the full benefits out of it wink.gif

Keep rocking!

Most of what took my attention is the problem with timming. Tone is nice and there is not much to complain about the playing clean or not (pretty nice execution man) but You need to focus on what's going in with particular notes. They do mismatch the rhythm of that backing. Especially the triplets go a bit of. Trying to draw the rhythm in DAW midi nad listen to the take with midi track on, can help to precisely mark to spots.

Hey man, this is pretty good but you've some timing issues that need to be straightened out. You are a bit premature with hitting that E note at 0:08 and you have a tendency to bend the string out of tune when doing vibrato. This usually happens by bending the string, keeping it bent and then applying vibrato. But if you apply vibrato whilst letting the string return occasionally to its original pitch then it should sound in tune.

Nice tone !
