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! Good playing Huargo!

There are many moments where your playing is perfect and I feel like listening to Mark. However, the parts that seem to be easier are the ones that give you problems and this issues are related mostly to the pitch of your bending and also to your vibrato which is not consistent.

I mean about the first melodic section and also about the last licks. There your playing become less consistent and your bending isn't tight. The fast picking parts are sounding good except by the long pentatonic + chromatics ascending lick that could also sound tighter.

Please keep on practicing this one focusing on these details.

Hi David, well done for attempting a hard lesson - it sounds really cool.

The two things that need work are


With your bending, you're not giving yourself time to reach the pitch or to articulate the bends as they sound in the lesson, especially at 0:08. Playing with a classical hand position can make bending harder so this may be the cause of that?

During the fast picking sections, especially the second one, you start to get behind the beat so spend more time on those hard licks to get more comfortable picking at that tempo.

On the positive side, you've got a very relaxed playing style and it looks very efficient too. Your tone is also really good. I also like the way your phrase, with the clipped, staccato notes etc - it's similar to how I sometimes play smile.gif

Hey tehre goold old friend!

Very glad to see you positng a take since a long time at least since I was able to see). I do agree with Gabriel - I had exactly the same first impression. First half that should be the simpler one sounds less solid than the second half. You sound good with all those blues-rock fast and tasty runs.

The first half has some bending pitch issues and it misses the goove a bit - I mean...it's somehow between the beats - really for taking close look at this. Be very carefull with vibrato on those lighter parts - it's easy to overvibrate the notes and create more nervous kind of feel. When listening to Gabriels original video you can hear that he's very careful with vibrato depth when he's keeping high rate of it. In other case he keeps "speed up" type of vibrato rate - he increases the rate through all ringing time of the note so it builds the tension while does not keep us feeling nervous smile.gif Just keep that in mind and your take will be perfect smile.gif
