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 Fuebob!

This is a nice take of this beautiful composition by Muris. I have to say that your tone fits great with this lesson, and that your playing is very good. I like the feeling that you add to the solo and also some personal details that you added to the composition.

Technically your playing is consistent and I can mark just a few details to take care but nothing really dramatic. You need to be careful with your bending (for example the last one is not reaching the right pitch). Besides this I noticed some very little timing issues here and there, and some unwanted noises when you play the open pedal note lick.

Finally, your tapping is good but a bit "timid". This is something that will be improved with a few more takes, or days of practice.

Keep on the good job!

Hi man, you're a very confident player and I like how you've injected your own personality into the take.

There's only two things that let your take down, the first is where you lose your place in the take just before the tapping section and the other is that last bend where you go just a bit sharp.

Other than that, I'd like to see you tackle something a little more demanding because I think you can handle it cool.gif

Hey there!

Really good take of yours. Nice tone match and respected notes length (sustain) without any unnecessary breaks, smooth notes connection and position shifts. A lot of good things to point out here. Let me just point out a few:

At 0:41 - 0:42 - there is a wrong note (highest one) - probably a helf step too low comparing to original lesson in this particular arpeggio

I can notice your bends are very close to perfect pitch but most of them needs just a few more cents up (3-4) to be exactly where they should in pitch.

At 0:21 - you need to find a sweet spot for this pinch harmonic (try to remember exact position of right hand). I haven't noticed this harmonic in original lesson. I feel like there are some moemnts where you play slightly different. Keep in mind pinch harmonics do not come out that well on the neck pickup position. Rethink if it's worth using it in this take smile.gif

Even thought you've made some changes it is still a piece of music, pleasant to listen smile.gif Well done smile.gif
