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 there! Your'e definitelety a good player mate smile.gif Your takes always keep w descent level. There is not much to point out from a "math-kind" of view. Timming is pretty tight, left and right hadn sync as well. All played notes are quite even. Vibarato tends to go slightly out of pitch - a little too high but very close to correct pitch. There was one note around 0:13 having sustain issue - not sure a fret buzz problem or the finger has fell off a little smile.gif At the end of 0:11 one note was not clean - I'm sure you felt exactly what happened wink.gif

Those are tiny tweaks but here something more musical to consider. Even if Stephane's tone is darker than yours, there is still more contrast in his playing - contrast between accents and notes filling the "gaps". Somehow I think your tone i proper (even if brighter) and you could achive more warmth on those "softer" notes by decreasing picking strength and maybe even pick angle. Of course that's subjective wink.gif Well done!

Hi mate! Good job with this one.

I'd like to add only two elements to have in mind during the next days of practice. The first one is your dynamics which could be more notorious as it happens in the original lesson. Notice how Stephane uses this elements on each phrase to give the melodies different accentuation and more feeling.

The second one is "swing". If you listen carefully to Stephane's playing, he is adding some swing to his phrasing, he is not going even with the beat and that's an element very used on jazz/fusion playing so it could be a good idea to practice it.

Besides this, I think that your vibrato could be more consistent in some parts.

Ok friend, I hope that my feedback helps. Keep on the good job!

Hi man, this is an interesting lesson and you're most of the way there.

Aside from what Gab and Darius said, I'd also say that you could make the take a lot smoother. If you listen to the first run at around 0:12, you can hear the distinct separation between notes and techniques. It's very apparent that you're replicating something but I want it to sound like you're really playing something.

I'm going to go in the opposite direction to Darius regards tone - the tone is very bright and I would perhaps suggest it sounds too much like a Strat for these kind of lines. If you were playing Ritchie Blackmore licks then your tone and approach would be perfect but you need more flow for this kind of stuff so try to experiment with softer picking techniques, make sure the hand coordination is as tight as possible and try to make your tone rounder and darker.
