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!

Good job with this lesson! I notice that the elements that I've marked are starting to show improvements. This means that you are working hard on this one. You obviously need to continue practicing to make your vibrato and bending more consistent and also try keep on working on dynamics. There are some moments where you reach good soft notes but I don't find moments where the intensity goes high as it happens in the original lesson.

Another thing that you could tweak a bit is your tone. I feel that it lacks some presence and fx. The second, is off course very subjective but I wanted to share my opinion. smile.gif

Please continue practicing with the tips shared in previous takes in mind.

Hi there.

I can hear a big improvement in your vibrato and bending, with your vibrato becoming noticeably strong - well done.

The biggest issue for me is that I can hear the awkwardness when you move around the neck from note to note. It's not quite natural yet. I can feel the concentration coming out in your hands... I think you're doing a great job of improving your technique so what remains is to get closer to that relaxed state of being able to move freely around the neck.

Your hand span is still quite small at the moment so you need to move your whole hand around in order to fret notes instead of using your fingers to reach for them. Start gradually trying to use your fingers more to reach notes that are 2 or 3 frets away, which will help you widen your reach. This will then help you with moving around the neck with more ease.

For me personally tone is quite nice in this take - it's more about your hand dynamics but in this case i feel you strat to dig the thing - there is some more contrast between soft and strong notes - I like that. Vibrato and bending pitch still require more precision. I would underline Ben's observation on your left hand. Somtimes we do "glue" the fingers for bending or vibrato but for some straight notes we recommend to work on fingers stretching to minimaze necessary movement of whole hand.
