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! This is a good take for this lesson. I've already commented it at the mentoring thread, but let me add some details about specific elements.

Your tone sounds good, but I don't think that it is completely cool for this solo, I feel that there are some moments where your sound is lacking sustain and it would be solved with some more drive in your sound. I don't think that student's should copy the instructors sound on this takes, but in this case, I feel that the original lesson has a more appropriated tone for this solo.

About your technique, the main problem appears when you play bends. You are not reaching the correct pitch in most of the cases, so this is a technique that requires work. This video includes my favorite exercise to work on it: https://youtu.be/Hh_pYY6UYIw

Ok mate, that's all by now, keep on working hard!

Hey there! I've noticed some quite nice muting and good vibrato - always going around the correct pitch - nice job on this! There is some work to be done on bending - more focus needed to get right pitch. Also...I would suggest to brighten the tone, especially considering you play Les Paul with humbuckers. Some typical for blues dynamics are not possible to reach without perfect balance of gain and treble frequencies. IT is possible to get it on LP but definitely with slightly different type of tone. Otherwise the main bluesy flavor is lost.

Heeeeeey it's great to see you back here again! Love the video backdrop, very appropriate. Just laying down some licks as you fill up the truck on your road trip!

-Bending: As the chaps say, you're reaching some bends spot on and others not quite so spot on.. some of them are a bit sharp there so you need to lay off the finger power there - too many protein shakes, I see wink.gif

-Vibrato: Very nice.. no issues here. Les Pauls are nice for wide, heavy vibrato.. much easier to get than those Strat necks. You could try for wider vibrato on the top two strings as well.

Tone: More gain needed, Cap'n. Also some verb and / or delay will give you more ambience. Notice how Lazslo's guitar has that floating in the evening sky sound? That's what you want to try and achieve there.. dusky, floaty, cloudy, dreamy etc..

Technique: Some areas you lose the coordination between pick and fingers, especially that repeating arpeggio near the end, so if you tighten those naughty areas up then you'll be be nearer the mark!
