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 this is pretty good. Your timing and tone is generally solid and your bending is accurate.

The only issues I see are with your phrasing not being quite smooth in some places. I'm talking about little pauses between notes like at 0:04. Those notes just occur one after the other with no audible break.

The shift at 0:25 sounds a bit lumpy too and uneven, like some of the notes are being picked too hard which makes them stand out more than the ones that follow them.

That's mainly it, it's just a case of smoothing out your phrasing so that the licks are seamless and don't contain any audible pauses or unevenness.

Hi mate! Good job here!

Ben has marked the little details that you could work on this lesson to make it sounds even better but I can say that your take is really good. You look comfortable and relaxed while playing the lesson which are really important things.

Just dedicate some more time to adjust the details and it will be a flawless take.

This lesson is quite nicely performed. No critical mistakes to capture smile.gif Your tone is good...same with guitar and backing track volume balance. I think you don't have to make such a fast vibrato - it doesn't fit the mood of this track. MAke ait a little slower or simple more shallow vibration depth and it shoudl be fine. There is a lack of precision at some spots but it doesn't destroy overall flavour of listening. Well done on this one. Fixs some details and it would be great smile.gif
