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 GMC

I Gave the best of myself.




Very good MisterM!

Good job. I liked the dry sound of your guitar, it added to your picking pressing increases the impact of the chord. You did a good job in both, the chords and the solo phrase.

Overall very good, good rhythm, good groove.

You're a Funkyman!
Thank you for working my video.

I will add your video to my youtube channel.

Really good take - great tone, playing and timing.

I think your vibrato sounds a little hesitant and uneven - that's my only criticism. I would work on it so you can use it any song, whether the tempo is slow, medium or fast.

Everything else is top notch!

Hey there! Excellent take! Tight timming, good tone match to the lesson. I think all mentioned suggestions here are very subjective - there are no huge mistakes here and just a tiny details that could be adjusted to out private taste. In my case it would be a part startting from 0:33. It looks liek you gave little problems to control the dynamics of picking at this spot. I would go for playing muted notes slightly softer and play open notes with the stength you do now. They would stick out as an accents comparing to palm muted "fills". You could try to involve just a tiny fingers (thumb and right index) motion to make it more easy to play and probably looked less tensed at this point. It's just a suggestion to try out, not a must. smile.gif Great work!
