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 V-Master. This is a cool track with some interesting and challenging phrases.

You're generally good with things like timing and bending but there's a couple of bends that go a bit sharp, the first one being at 0:35 and the other following it immediately afterwards. To be fair, that is a very hard bend to play so try to spend some time on that because it's really worth mastering those types of bends because not a lot of guitarists can do them wink.gif

Apart from that, there's two main areas which you improve upon:

- Pauses in between phrasing. At the moment, your each lick sounds separated from each other. You've got the brick wall built but you need the mortar in between the cracks, ok? So it's just a case of getting more comfortable with a piece so that you can linger on each note as long as you need without needing that 'thinking time' to get from one phrase to the next.

- Tone. There's nothing actually wrong with your tone but for this piece it might be a bit too 'metal' so it would be more of an advantage for you to try and get something that sounds a bit smoother, less distorted and less harsh.

Nice work!

Hi WeePee! This lesson is a very good choice to train your bending technique as well as your vibrato.

The overall solo is sounding good. You can play the licks clean and you are trying to apply all those details that make the lesson cool: micro bends, vibrato, trills and legato. So I can say that you are on the right track with this one

The main is related to your bending technique which is nor precise in some moments where but your bends (for example around 00:28, and 00:35) are not in pitch. So please isolate this parts and give them some extra practice.

In some moments I feel that your vibrato starts too quickly while in others I feel it's a bit small. I would suggest to check the original lesson to get some more inspiration about different type of vibrato to get different feels.

That's all, keep on the good job!

Hey there! Two things that took most of my attention where already pointed by Ben. Around 0:35 we need more precision and clean bending (while all other bends seems to be ok). Personally I would lower some gain but not make changes to overall spectrum (eq) to keep that specific warm Les Paul tone while getting slightly closer to the tone of Gary More (He used insane amount of strength from the hand while his drive adjustment was not as huge as it sounds). This would help to get cleaner pass between phrases and help to get rid of all those "hand moving noises".
