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.

Gab's army getting stronger and stronger....same with your legato - it's not only easy to hear but also visible on the video that you bring a lot of strength to execute proper vibrato. I suppose going this direction you'll find yourself not having problems to execute it on acoustic or classical guitar with higher strings action and thicker gauge. When I see this happen I always feel like someone gets additional points to the value of take quality smile.gif

There are one, max two moments where you slipped but I believe it could be possible to get those done just by making another take. You already did a lot of justice to this lesson

Try to decrease the gain or recheck if your cables are ok. There is way too much hum/buzz in your tone and nosie gate will not always do the job

Hi there. This is a very good effort and you demonstrate a good grasp of legato. It sounds smooth.

There are some timing issues, especially at the beginning. This is quite common with this lesson because it's actually harder to perform legato at slower tempos, due to our fingers wanting to move too soon. It takes a lot of control but you're heading in the right direction with this. Keep up the good work!
