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.

Great playing! I will describe the little things that I think you should work.The first riff should sound cleaner. Try to pick strongly every note and work on both hands synchronization (I think that the best way would be to practice it slower with metronome). Work a bit more your vibrato and bending. The tricky parts have some little timming problems. Take those licks and practice them as diary exercises. Your sound is really good!

Keep on rocking!

Really great attempt. I agree with the above statements, you need to be a bit more aggresive and confident with the rhythm riff to make it stand out. Also be sure your bends come to pitch. There is some timing issues with the tricky parts as well. But not very much. Overall really outstanding job!
