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 again mate!

Once again your playing here is very good! You can keep your timing tight, and change chords smoothly all along the take. I also think that your palm muting sounds good here. This means that you are dealing with distortion very well. smile.gif

I only note that your guitar has some tuning issues so some chords doesn't sound well. Please check out if this is a problem with your guitar tuning, or if it's because your guitar has old strings or needs to be set by a professional.

Ok mate, keep on the hard work!

Yeah! This is rocking!

Aside from the slight tuning issue this is a very good take. You are feeling it and playing in time.

Well done, you get a 9 from me!

Seems liek you feel more comfortable with distortion than with clean tone, chord strumming. To be honest in this take you are like a different player who playes a year longer than the one from chords lesson. You control over timimng and unwanted noises is very descent. Your strums are quite even tonally. Actually nothing bad to say besides the same issue that appeared in chrds lesson - never underrate the intonation precision. Sometimes it's the only difference between professional and amateur player, while playing same, simple riff.
