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 7.5 or higher.

Well done! smile.gif This sounds very good, with good timing and nice old school vintage scooped tone. I like it. I think it will do just fine, but you should try to make those strums even more tighter. Keeping all the fingers close to the palm of the picking hand, and not letting them wave out (or touch the guitar body beneath the strings) will help you.

Good job mate! the overall is really good but the downstrokes with palm muting aren't perfectly tight with the drums and timing. There is like a delay with those notes... If you fix that you'll get a flawless take. Another suggestion for the future would be to improve the overall sound, maybe using a free daw for recording the sound and mixing guitar with backing and then a video editor to synchronize the new mix with the video. Keep on rocking. smile.gif

Tight sound and palm muting are two inseparable things while playing riffs, focus on it and it will be a super take ! Very good job wink.gif
