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 Sumit, you're working very hard on this and I commend you for your dedication. It can be easy to get bored of the same lesson but you're proving that practise does lead to improvement.

Your vibrato is getting better. Notice how the end of the phrases sound less robotic? By adding a bit of vibrato to the last note of a phrase it stops it from standing out and sounding too stark.

Your picking is also improving. The coordination between both hands is better.

The span of your fingers is still quite small yet but that will increase with time.

Good work!

Hi summit!

I've been checking the forum and I've noted that you are very active and working very hard. Well done! This will have a cool impact in your guitar playing.

This lesson shows that your technique is slowly improving but also shows that there are areas that still need practice:

- bending
- picking
- vibrato

Each of these elements show progress but you should continue working, following the suggestions that I've given you at the forum, practicing diary with a consistent guitar routine.

Cheers mate.
