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.

Rhythm placement - 3,8
Cleanness - 4
Feel - 3,5
Posture - 3,5
Sound - 3

Your have a lot of room reverb so I can't really hear the real sound. You should have set your volume louder. Also the backing wasn't loud enough. Sometimes I could hear your picking as if you were not pluged in. You executed all these parts pretty good but it is visible that you're still not 100% comfortable. This is not a bad take at all, (actually very good) but it could be more relaxed and parts could be better connected between each other.

It was a good take but you definitely need to correct your sound - or the way you are recording it.
I suggest going trough some digital audio workstation (DAW) and latter putting together video and separate audio together.

Rhythm placement 4
Cleanness 3.6
Feel 3.5
Posture 3.5
Sound 3

That's a good take. I agree with Pedja and Emir about the sound. With a better sound we could evaluate your playing better.

this sounded very good, and technique was pretty good as well. There are couple of timing issues on the faster parts, but great take in overall.
