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 nike,

Good job with this lesson. It's very close to sound flawless but there are some little details to adjust. At first, I think that your bending can be more precise. You are not far from the pitch, most of the time you hit it but I notice that it's not always like that, and sometimes you search a bit for the tune making your bending less consistent.

Besides this, I think that you can make your vibrato even wider, and your picking stronger. The original lesson has a very cool manage of dynamics. Pay attention to it and try to imitate this very cool element.

Hail Nico - great to see you back again - it's been a long time smile.gif

Ok man, you've some good grooves happening here. I like the tone and your timing is pretty spot on as well. The only thing that's obvious is the same thing Gabriel already picked up on. That main bend is slightly sharp, slightly too high. That's about it. That's my only real criticism. Either you're just too enthusiastic about that bend or you've been lifting too many weights again cool.gif

Try to hone your pitch when bending and I'll look forward to your next REC. Welcome back!

Hey nikeman! smile.gif

Great choice of lesson. I love that good old blues-rock taste!
Your playing is quite descent. I did enjoy your performance but still probably most visible issue for me was the pitch. You tend to go too high with the pitch while you bend. I also had a feeling (i might be wrong) that somehow whole guitar was a few cents above the pitch of backing track. I'm not sure how this could happen. Anyway there is a lot of good going on in your take and keep up rockin'!
