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.

I really like this take. Very nice feel for rock riffing. Some phrases started a bit before the actual beat so that's why I gave 4.1. It happened a couple of times. Your sound is really good. If you can just get out the 100% of the sound by playing, I would give 5. The sound is not only how you program your preset, it's also how you can get it out by playing guitar. But your raw sound is great. The last thing I want to say is that your guitar is out of tune. That's very noticable when you take D and G chord. Other than that this is a very nice take. Well done

I would agree with Emir completely. Just pay more attention to rhythm, tune your guitar more precisely and it will sound much better. I love your tone!

I might add that you should try to tap with your foot
or even do some headbanging,
try it first without playing over backing track
and then along while playing.
