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.

Great take ! Nice to see you again smile.gif

You've got good palm muting skills and your alternate picking is solid too.

Things that would improve it even more..

Try to accent certain notes on that opening riff so that they leap out. You'll notice that on some of the notes Gab plays them with no muting so they cut through compared to the muted notes.

In some places you went a little bit in front of the beat, but nothing too bad. All in all, a solid take. 9 ! )

The only opponent is within.

Hey man! Congratulations on a pretty solid take - Ben is right about the rushing and the accents, so just give this a little more time at slow motion to nail the 10 wink.gif

Hi mate! Good playing! smile.gif
As my friends said, it's a good take and it just need some attention on timing and the accentuation, mostly in the verse's section to be a perfect take. You have to accentuate a bit the first note of each beat. wink.gif

Good take! I agree about your accents! Try to practice this lesson at a slow tempo and it will sound perfect in no time!
