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.

Hey Marek, great to see you participating in this smile.gif

A couple of things, first off i can't see from your video but it sounds to me like your using the neck pickup, it would help tighten your sound up and have more clarity on the bridge pickup, if your not using the neck pickup try to back off the gain a bit, your tone and cleaness will improve just by having more clarity in your tone.

Also, be much more aggressive with your palm muting, this lesson requires you to stop the strings dead in their tracks between chords, so it will be tighter.

Your posture is good, and you are close to the tone for this lesson, I think if you have more clarity in your tone, and work on the palm muting your rhythm placement will start correcting itself too. If i am having a hard time hearing what your guitar is doing, i would imagine you are too.

Keep up the good work!

You have too much distortion and it sounds like you're playing it on the neck pickup. Maybe not but it sounds like that. Many times you hit riffs before the beat so I gave you 2,5 for the rhythm placement. If you fix these things I'll give you much higher marks.
