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 Chris,

Good job with this lesson. You've been working on the different elements that I've marked and I notice improvment on each of them.

Your vibrato is wider now which is a good thing. However, you still need to fix two details, first is to make the vibration go more connected with the backing groove, and the other is letting the note sound before starting vibrato. Listen carefully how Emir manages both things.

Your bending is also better on this take, so you are going on the right track.

Keep on the hard work.

Hi this is a better take, you've added vibrato to some of the notes which sounded dull before, which improves the sound.

Your bending was better this time around as well.

There were a couple of moments where you didn't quite hit a note or something... 0:40 and 1:02. I think your pick didn't connect properly perhaps.

The tone is a bit harsh and fizzy to me. It could be the constraints of your gear but if you have the option to make the gain sound smoother then it's worth trying to adjust it.

Good work!

I would agree on Gabs observation - probably coulldn't name it better than he did smile.gif You vibrato needs to be responsive to the backing track. Try to capture a rhythm that fits the backing track tempo and assign it to you vibrato speed. Try to not play totally random rhythm - it makes things go sort of "outside" the backing.

I will also agree on Ben's tone observation. Harsh high frequencies dominate your tone. There is a risk that gear you use for playback or the position of your ears vs speakers will make you not able to spot this problem, but it really is there. Wisely used Low Pass Filter is a tool that is beeing used for decated as a very first eq-ing process we do right after getting best from amplifier and microphone settings.
It should be available as an option in track eq in DAW but if you google for LPF vst plug-ins you should be able to easily find some freee software that will do the job.
