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 mate! Nice take.

Here are some things to have in mind:

- Be careful with timing. You tend to play a bit before the beat on many parts.
- It would be better if you put your guitar louder in the mix on future takes to let us hear your playing clearer.
- Work on your vibrato technique, it needs to be more consistent and more connected with the backing's groove.

I think that it would be good if you join this workout: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=54317

So, to summarize, this is a good take, but you need to continue practicing to make your playing tighter and adjust details regarding feeling.

Keep on the hard work!

Hey there! Most of the take is played well - clean and in tune. Some of the final bends go out of pitch but overall image of your take is pretty good. Aside from timming issues I highly advice to be very carefull with any fx (reverb, delay, chorus etc) In this particular case those made you guitar a little blurry in the whole mix. Giving some extra dB's (volume) to you guitar track (comparing to backing track) would definitely help us to judge better and would make your solo sound clearer smile.gif

Hi there. I know Gab mentioned being in front of the beat in some places. There are also a few moments where you start playing slightly too late, like at 0:07, 0:10, 0:12 so one you've become comfortable with what you're playing always listen to make sure you're in time with the backing track.

You're mostly in time anyway, it's just a few noticeable exceptions.

The bend at 0:34 isn't reaching full pitch. You need a whole tone bend whereas you hit more of a semitone there.

Good work, you just need to polish those two things - timing and bending.
