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 again mate,

the comments on this take are totally related to my comments on the previous REC take (Southern Rock) but now the problem is more notorious because this lesson is based on the technique that needs more practice: Bending.

This one is a very good choice and can be combined with THIS exercise in your diary routine to polish this technique.

Also, audio mix can be improved on this video (check the tutorial shared on the other REC comment).

Keep on the hard work!

Hi, as Gabriel said we can apply the feedback from your other REC take of Southern Rock and say that your bending needs to be honed so that you can bend confidently at a quicker pace and nail the right pitch.

The lick that happens around 0:23 - there's a couple of things you want to address here.

First thing is working in your hammer-ons and pull-offs so that you can effectively replicate the lick without the notes getting lost.

The second thing is timing, which is lost mainly because of your fingers not having the control over it's hammer/pull technique.

That lick alone would be worth isolating and spending at least 10 mins on every day. Just working on that lick will improve your whole guitar playing a bunch because it's got many elements that are essential to lead playing.

First of all you choose very good stuff (lessons) for your playing adventure. They include a lot of contrat in dynamics of playing so they are actually very demanding evem if the speed looks not so dangerous. We could apply most of the feedback from you previous lesson.

Now as for the video let me help you with one tip I share quite often.
To get solid sound without weird phase issues between guitar nad backing track, your amp and pc speakers should be pointed in the same direction and if possible at the same distance from the camera's microphone. Otherwise some frequencies will cancel eachother and we get sort of phaser fx tone ...witout phaser fx device smile.gif

Example? Place your amp under the desk so it would be in line with pc speakers. Place your camera in front of your PC desk instead of being at somewhere at the side of the speakers. This way You will capture most clear tone of both - backing track and guitar amp
