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,

As I've said at the mentoring program, this new take is much better than the previous one. The main thing improved on this one is the pitch of your vibrato, and tremolo work.

During the next days, you could try to make the vibration go even more connected with the groove of the backing track.

It's awesome to see how fast and how much you could improve your take. Congrats!

Hi man, this is very good. I think the whammy work is smoother and more positive than the previous take.

I didn't think the biggest issue was with the whammy vibrato anyway, I wanted to see you using sweep picking for the arpeggios. I know that the slow tempo means that we could use alternate picking but the point of sweeping them is because it's meant to be a Jason Becker lesson and we know that Becker is a sweeper! wink.gif

But despite that, this take is great smile.gif

Hey again!

Will agree with both guys - vibrato pitch has been improved comparing to previous take. You need to clarify the pitch of whammy bar vibrato now and still the "swep thing" needs work smile.gif
