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 Tim, your tone is so much better on this version. The lead section sounds much more authentic and bluesy now!

Vibrato, bending and hand coordination are the 3 areas which we usually mention to you. They are something which is ongoing in your practise anyway - this lesson heavily relies on all 3 of those elements so obviously you still have improvements you can make but this is something that will take time. However, in the small amount of time since your last take of this lesson, you've already made improvements to the overall delivery of the lesson.. just be prepared for the improvements on physical technique to take longer smile.gif

Hi again Tim!

It's interesting to review my comment on the previous take and be able to say that each of the three elements that I've mentioned shows improvement her: tone, dynamics and articulation.

This means that you are also going on the right track with this lesson and that you only need to more time of practice. And as Ben said, it's important to be patient since it takes time to polish expressing elements like dynamics, vibrato and bending.

Keep on the hard work!

Hey Tim!
Same as Ben, I've noticed your tone improvement at first. I really like the amount of brightness, that matches the type of a lesson perfectly. Contrast in your playing has improved as well. More dynamics are clearlly visible and the accents are clearly outstanding from the soft notes. In this lesson I can notice something that might be your overall problem. You have a regular problem with lick with string skipping - I'm not sure if it's more a sync issue between both hands or a pressure issue. It's definitely something that somehow makes a regular problem, that is visible in many of your takes for different lessons. I think you should talk with Gab to get some help on it smile.gif
