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 there! smile.gif Aside some obvious flaws - mainly around 1:00 (this lick simply needs more practice) I can see You made the sketch of this lesson pretty well. You still look a bit tensed and highly focused on what You play. You might need some more time to be able to get the "relax state" and focus on the timming (it's the main issue here). Soem lick are delayed in time - a bit different rhythm wise. From the good things I like how You match Your vibrato rate to the song tempo. Also...your playing seems to be nosie-free (haven't heard much of unwanted open strings noise etc).

Hey this is good stuff. You control the tone quite well, there's no unwanted string noise as Darius said.

There are some cases where you're slightly behind the beat.. but that's not a bad thing, really. I would always prefer someone to be slightly behind than slightly ahead because I think it's easier to cure.

Try to improve the lick at 1:00. The first hammer-on/pull-off part is giving you trouble here. Slow it down and make sure you're getting all the notes in. Many people struggle with hammer/pull licks because they skip the hammer-on and just play the pull-off.. it's a lot to fit into a small space but once you've got it you don't forget it. smile.gif

Hi Petr! I compared this take with the previous one and I can hear improvements on all the aspects that we've talked about in the previous comments. Please take care of the things than Ben and Darius marked and share a new take in one week.

Keep on the good job!
