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.

That's good one ! Now, sound is too bright and have more distortion than it should (most can be heard at the end, playing intervals). That kind of tone is a hard to control with a palm (muting) ! A small fluctuations in the timing, but this is something that can be adjusted with a higher concentration. In general good work,keep rocking wink.gif

Hey again Ulrik!

The take is generally good but as Sinisa pointed out as well, I would suggest a less gainier tone and a bit more practice at a slow tempo for tightening the take up!

Well played, you put a good effort into it. This piece now needs fine tuning. When you speedpick, it's important that every note comes out clear, so you should work on leveling out your picking technique, so it's even on all the notes. Also, try working on those slides - they need to be more swifter.

Nice take cool.gif

Your general rhythm playing here was good.

As the guys said, those sliding diads that were played with clean, open strumming could ring out better by making sure you also hit the D string. It's an easy thing to miss.. I did it a few times when recording it wink.gif

The main thing you need though is palm muting ! Some chunkier palm muting is essential for rock and metal. I'll p.m. you with some suggestions smile.gif

Hi mate! As the other instructors said, the take is good but it needs some improvements. At first your tone, it's so bright and has too many distortion. When you record rhythm lessons you have to set a lower drive compared to the solo sections. Regarding the technique, your right hand should be more precise, mostly starting at 1:10.

Sounds very good! Too much distortion and it sounds out of your control a little bit, also a few timing issues but it can be fixed by spending more time with metronome! I liked the take! Good job!
