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 man, this is an excellent take. Your bending accuracy is very impressive and you've got really good control over the technique as well as good control over your timing and tone.

There was only one bend that wasn't 100% on pitch. The semitone bend at 0:31 sounds just a little sharp to my ears but in a real live performance it would definitely be good enough. We just have to be strict and point every little thing out.

However, overall this was great. Those unison bends sounded just fine this time around.

Hi Anese!

That's brilliant! I could follow your hard work at the mentoring program and this is the well deserved result. A killer take with just one or maybe two small details to adjust.

It's a pleasure to have the opportunity of guiding your practice.

Congrats mate.

Hey there!

This is a really strong take. Your constant focus on pitch have to be noticed and appreciated. You have fixed almost everything mentioned under your previous take. Especially the second part sound much better. There are still a few bends to become even more precise pitch-wise. Those bends are in the final part - like 0:57. I think you have a good control over bends that are based on "smooth intervals", like 4th, 5th and duplicated notes. You need to get your ears used to pitch over 3rd's as well. Aside from this I have to congratulate you - your hard work gave great results. Well done!
