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.

You had a pretty decent rhythm but I would like to hear it even more expressive and more relaxed like Angus plays. The strumming could also have a couple of upstrokes at least in the chorus section. You only played downstrokes all the way. The solo was not very precise. Your bends are very weak and some work on that is necessary as that's what you have to seriously fix.

The weird thing was the tunning. I guess that Gabriel is tuned half step down and you're playing with normal tunning over that. Didn't that bother you at all? I realised that when I heard the solo. It's completely out of the key. The fix would be to either retune your guitar or ask Gabriel to send you the backing in normal tuning which can easily be fixed in many programs.

I'll give you 8 for the effort but this could be an instant fail just because of the wrong tunning.

Emir pretty much explains it. It has to be more expressive and tighter in general.

technique is good man, beside timing problems and expression, the main problem is tuning. you can ask Gabe for a BT in 440 or just down 1/2 down your guitar and rec a new take. keep on practising!
