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 Fabiopa!

This is a good take for this beautiful classic GMC lesson!

As you already know the different parts and can play everything at tempo, I think that now it's time to focus on some elements that will have a big impact in your playing:

- Dynamics
- Vibrato
- Groove

Each of these element are essential parts of SRV playing so this lesson is a good excuse to work on them.

At first, when talking about dynamics, we have to say that SRV playing was very aggressive as well as Muris playing in this one. I think that your picking and strumming are a bit soft for this style. Compare your right hand motion for the first riff with Muris's and see how he hits the strings starting much higher than you. That will make your playing sounds more aggressive, and will expand the threshold of dynamics in your playing. Listen to the different parts and notice the use of different intensities and accents in both the rhythm and melodic parts.

Your vibrato is here, but it needs to be more consistent. Check for example your vibrato at 00:28. It's there, but it's not defined. Work on this technique. There are many good lessons based on it in our archive.

Finally, groove. This is also related to your right hand work. When playing groovy music, I recommend to keep our right hand moving with the rhythm to keep the groove flowing and make it easier to play the rhythms. Go to the second 14 of the original lesson and watch Muris's right hand movement. That's what your playing is lacking.

Ok mate, that's all by now. I hope that my comments help to go into the right direction.

Keep on the good job.

Hey there!

Your overall performance is quite good but it lacks some details to be perfect.

First thing to notice is that the shuffle strumming is bi-directional in original lesson, while yours is only downstroked. This kind of hand pulse is a part of this lesson so it's worth to do it exactly like Muris did.

The tone - there is some unpleasant fizz in your tone. It sounds a little like cabinet simulation has been switched off or your amp has been plugged to hi-fi speakers that doesn't cut the high end. Try to recheck this.

Generally timing is descent and most visible issue from technical point of view is your weak vibrato. It like you show us that you know where it should be applied but the execution itself is not fluent enough yet. Shallow and irregular. You need to work on your vibrato for sure. Anyway...some of the good work has been done already and now it's time to polish things up smile.gif

Agreed! This is a key element.

When playing the sections you master we can hear you connect with the groove and it's pleasant to listen to. As soon as you start thinking about the technical stuff, then you also loose timing and groove.

With more practicing (and aggressive strumming and picking) I think this will be a killer take.
