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, good job!

This is a very promising take! There are some obvious details to fix but the overall sounds very close.

The things to work are related to cleaning up some licks and parts like the harmonics, and some of the faster rock licks. I think that the overall lesson has some room to sound cleaner or more defined and this is related to your right hand dynamics, even when playing the power chords and riffs.

Please isolate the problematic sections and work on them for some time every day before playing the whole thing. Focus on timing (even for that tremolo bar note), dynamics, and hand sync.

Keep on the hard work.

Hey there!

First of all , your take is pleasant to listen and musicality-wise there are no serious complaints.

As for the technical point of view, you tend to leave low strings untached and they start to ring over the notes you leave to sustain. Try to make sure you use some part of your right palm to rest on low strings, while playing on high strings.

In the tapping part there is still a timing workout needed. You tend to rush those licks.

I would generally suggest to spend some time on your vibrato technique analysis. It look a little nervous and like being done with single finger. Most of us use wrist to generate smooth vibrato motion. It's also easier to stay in tune this way (less pitch irregularities)

Hi Fabio, this is a solid take which has good foundations but you just need to work on some technical details:

- At 0:06 you accidentally mute the open high E string.

- The legato run at 0:28 is a bit incoherent so I would work on some legato exercises or some hammer/pull drills just to build up some finger strength and free up the fingers even more.

- The tremolo picking part at 0:30 is supposed to be played as 16th note triplets but you're playing them as straight 16th notes so it's a lot slower than the lesson intended.

You've got a good base of technique - you just need to work on picking speed, finger independence and vibrato for a while smile.gif
