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 - 4.8
Cleanness - 4.8
Feel - 4.6
Posture - 5
Sound - 4.5

Biggest problem here imo is your tone and mix,
tone has too much bass even tho you used Lian's preset,
your guitar is more woody I guess.
Cut off bass a little and it'll also help you
to execute all those pinched harmonics you missed.
And guitar sound was too loud in mix as well,
I could barely hear the backing
so pay more attention to that.
Oh, you played few wrong notes btw, at 0:28,
you started from D# instead of C#, no big deal tho, too easy to fix, good job. smile.gif

Sound is something that needs more work here. Too much gain and compression and too much loudness relative to the backing. Timing was also a bit shaky here and there.

well man, great take! there are some parts that need more work. an important problem to put an eye on is timing. review the lesson and try it using the slow BTs. you´ll get it pretty soon. keep up the great work man!

Backing is not loud enough. You have a good feel for this but it's still unprecise in many parts. Try less gain as well. Good job overall

You still have to practice a bit and it will be OK. You really have to listen onto the rates because the backing isn't loud enough indeed.
