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 man, nice work. Good tone and very clean articulation smile.gif

A couple of things you might want to look at are:

-Timing. When you're playing the 8th note triplet sections you're rushing them just a bit. Just bring them back slightly.
-Vibrato at 0:20. You're holding the note out of pitch and vibrating it there, rather than allowing it to come back to original pitch every now and again. If a note is bent and kept bent it will always sound out of key so remember to allow vibrato to pulse between original pitch and out of pitch.

Lastly, this is a taste thing but you perform string bends quite quite quickly. We don't get to hear the upwards motion of the note which takes away some of the impact from my perspective but that's just me. It's not 'wrong'. smile.gif

Hi Chris! You're the boss! biggrin.gif

This is a good take that needs some adjustments to be a perfect one. Your timing is not totally tight on this one, it's close but it's not going even with the beat / groove. The other thing that you need to have in mind during the next days of practice is the pitch of your bending and vibrato. Ben already gave more details about these things so please follow his suggestions.

Ok mate, it's great to see you sharing new videos at REC, keep on the hard work!

Agreed with Ben on tone and articulation!. For me two most visible things to fix where the timming - especially on the triplets, and the pitch issues on Your vibrated bends - most of the long notes loose correct pitch when You start to vibrate them (while already being bend). This means you don't keep even tension of the string in every single "vibro-motion". Maybe start from doing very small,subtle vibrato to focus on the pitch itself. It might profit in improved ability to control the tension of string tha is bent at the moment.
