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 Ryushi!

This one seems to be your first take for REC, so congrats about it!

The overall take sound good, but there are some details to adjust. So let's talk about it!

At first, your vibrato has a good width, but I think that most of the times the vibration is not totally connected with the backing's groove. Sometimes I also think that the movement is irregular, and unnatural. You need to go more with the rhythm of the track, and make it evolve naturally from the note. In order to work this, it's a good plan to play along with Emir to emulate a bit his natural vibrato.

When using your finger as a bar (like at 00:24), you need to try to avoid double string sound which makes your phrasing sound dirty. This can be tricky at first but the idea is to mute the previous note as soon as the new one is played.

Besides this two things, I think that it would be good to continue practicing the lesson, to feel more comfortable with the different licks, and mostly with those that cross strings like the one at 00:39. These licks are not played bad but your playing starts to sound a bit shy because you are not comfortable yet.

Ok mate, I think that this take is very promising. I'd also like to know a bit more about you so looking forward an intro at the forum!

Take care.

Hi, welcome to the REC Zone!

Your vibrato is good but you are still developing it yet... as Gabriel mentioned you will start to make it fit more naturally over the beat. Vibrato doesn't always have to be wide either... sometimes you can just be very subtle with it and it can be enough just to give the notes some life.

You're playing some of the lines incorrectly so you'll want to go back through the tablature and correct it.

Try to avoid awkward transitions like at 0:21. Try to connect all the phrases together smoothly and you'll sound much better as a result.

Good work - keep going at it!

Hey there and congrats on your first take smile.gif

Let's say that what you show us is a quite descent live(gig) playing level and I would not complain listening to you at that gig as well smile.gif

Now for studio or educational purpose we need to spot every details that needs to be fixed. You vibarato is on the good path. It's visible that you know the bacis mechanics behind it and you execute them in your playing. Now you need some more time to polish your vibrato skills - make it more even in both cases - timming and width. Alwasy try to go across correct pitch and make consistent motion with your left hand fingers - other words always make the same "small bends" when you vibrate any note. Try to achive simialar consistency with timming of your vibrato. Speed it up or slow it down while the note last but try to avoid making irregular speed changes (there are exceptions of course but that's how basic vibrato idea is)

As Ben spotted you need to verify your playing with original video/tabs. Every note in the lesson counts, every articulation mark etc.

Aside from above your tone could be just slightly less harsh (just a little less treble around 4-6 kHz and would be perfect - strong but warmer for the ears.

OVerall it's a piece of good job and you are seriously to deserve self-satisfaction of your work smile.gif
