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 mate,

I've seen this video three times trying to find out things to improve and honestly it has been really tricky. Your playing is precise and sounds very good. There are not relevant things to improve in this take.

Your timing is good, and your vibrato tends to be precise and consistent. If we get extremely strict, maybe there is some little room to make some vibratos more regular, but again, this is a great take. I think that you are ready for a new lesson.

Congrats on your great job!

Hey, good to see you back in the REC again.

This is brilliant. The vibrato is excellent and so is your timing.. oh and so is your hand sync. Tbh it's perfect.

Almost!

I know you noticed it and you know I'll notice it too.

That wrong note at 0:13. You just fretted a semitone too low is all. Damn, Apart from that, your take was perfect! Well done cool.gif

Hey there!

That's a really great take. Same as guys I had real problem spotting any mistakes. Clever Ben caught you on the wrong note smile.gif AS for the vibrato I would only say it sounds good and anything you would want to try to make even better is the consistency of vibrato depth - try to make the vibration everytime reach the same "out of pitch" point when you pull the string. It will sound even more pro smile.gif
