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.

It's quite an intensive lesson, and I can see that you practiced it, some parts turned out very good. On the other hand, the overall performance was not that great, and some parts had very poor execution, specially the first part of the solo. I think you can play the lesson, but not that well to get a passing grade. There is more polishing up to be done in order to sound convincing.

I see that you can play this lesson, but you are still missing some practice, the take is not really convincing yet. I would recommend to give it some more rounds until you really feel comfortable and safe with the whole thing and I am sure your performance will improve.

Guitars: various Gibson Les Pauls / Gibson J 45
Amps: Mesa Boogie Tripple Rectifier / Triaxis / 2:90 Poweramp / Rectocabs
Effects: Rocktron Intellifex / Rocktron Xpression

well as the other said, it's not perfect yet. but you're really close of master it. just keep on practising, and slow down some specific part for practice like: 00.23 to 00.28 ; 00.33 to 00.39 ; and 00.50.
faster parts are not that bad, now you have to work on getting a tight sound and clearer notes while shredding.
