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.

Yo Manuh, great take !

A couple of things kept it from a perfect 10 though, to my ears. First of all, try to get a bit more palm muting on the very first part of the main riff to help separate the E and A strings.

The other thing is those chord arpeggios from 0:26 onwards - the notes are supposed to ring into each other and not be so separated ( I know, the exact opposite of what I said before !). If you take your fingers off every time and only fret the note you're playing they won't ring into each other. Hopefully I've explained it well ?

Hey manuh! Great take man! I understand what Ben said wink.gif these are important details which are usually making a huge difference between players, but then again, the take is very good! Congrats!

Hi Manuh! Great job here! Ben's comments are exactly what I think of this take. I would add that in the first riff there are some notes that are picked softer, you have to keep the intensity in the whole riff to get a powerful sound. Your guitar must be like a wall in this type of tunes. It's a 9 for me. Well done!

Good take! I like your sound! I agree with Ben little things will make a huge difference! Also it sounds like your guitar intonation is out and some notes sounded out of tune!
I would suggest to check it and make sure that it is setup properly!
