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! To be honest I haven't spotted anything seriously wrong to be fixed in your take. I enjoyed it - good touch, proper dynamics and good timming.

Some very tiny details have taken my attention, consider taking a close look to those:

1. Guitar volume in the mix - you could give some more cause it happens to be covered but some frequencies of keyboard pads in teh background and guitar falls from the 1st plan to the background.

2. Obviously it's not going out of tune beyond the tolerance limit but you need to take some sepcial care to always bring the string back to it's natural tension at the points of release. You don't have to worry on this too much but this might be an improvement for the future. At this moment it creats a feeling theat a note is on constant bend while you vibrate it.

Aside from this it's a great piece of work. Congratulations!

Keep on the great job!

This is a really good take of an interesting lesson.

I like your tone - very smooth and relaxing. Vibrato and bending are all tasteful as well.

The only issues you ever seem to have are during more technical phrases, which is quite a good issue to have because it shows that everything else you can do really well and the technical stuff is just more practise.

1:10: This lick sounds "interrupted" because of the small pause whilst you shift position. Jonathan manages to make this sound more seamless and somehow also makes it sound slower and more relaxed. Don't be in too much of a rush to end notes. Let them endure.

1:14-1:16: It's quite hard to get this sounding like somebody else because the timing is so relaxed and open to interpretation but my advice would be to leave the bend a bit later and play behind the beat, meaning that you can follow it up with that sliding lick nice and quickly. What you want to avoid is playing the bend and sliding lick too early because it sound like you've unleashed the tension too early.

It's very hard to describe but I hope you can understand what I mean if you read it and listen back to Jonathan's take and your take. It may make sense then smile.gif
