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.

Hi there! smile.gif
I thought that i would give the REC a take!
This is my take on Marcus Lavendell's Winding Roads solo. It's quite an old take but I decided to give it a chance smile.gif
In this video I think i used my Boss gt-10 through my Ibanez amp and a Music Man Jp6 guitar.
I don't know how I can get the whole video shown here, so it would be great if someone told me how smile.gif

it's a good take, good technique. I feel like you are putting different parts together and cannot see the unity of it all. Focus on the transitions between parts so they sound more unified.

Your playing shows a great potential. I can add a suggestion to the previous ones: try to use a DAW for your takes. It's not good to hear the acoustic sound of your guitar over the backing and the distortion smile.gif
