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.

Very nicely played with good hammered on and pulled off phrases, it turned out quite nice, and there are no big mistakes. I like the standing position too, although you seem a bit insecure.

There are some minor issues with timing on the palm muted parts, just slightly drifting from the drums, and the guitar is slightly out of tune/not intonated properly on some of the riffs.

Good, strong take. The most noticeable thing for me is that it needs stronger and tighter palm muting.. it sounds a bit indistinct at the moment. It could be due to your sound setup as well.. sometimes it can be hard to get a good muted sound when you're using an fx unit.

Try experimenting with palm muting.. move your hand back and forth between the neck and bridge and find the 'sweet spot'.. there will be a point nearer the neck where you cut the notes off completely.. and if it's too far back towards the bridge it won't have as much effect, so experiment and get to know how to work your palm muting to it's best ability smile.gif

P.S. It's ok to lift your little finger off the guitar when you're playing chuggy rhythms, if you try too hard to keep your finger connected to the guitar whilst playing chords etc it can hold you back. For smaller, more concentrated techniques like alternate picking it makes sense to keep your hand still but for larger techniques that rely on bigger movements it's ok and natural to move your hands a bit more with the rhythm smile.gif This will help you get a better 'chug' sound with your palm muting as well.

Hi man! The first part is ok but has some little timing issues. The second riff which is fastest isn't played like in the original lesson. You are not playing the same quantity of notes in the open D string. I recommend you to take this second riff and practice it at a slower tempo over the backings or metronome. You could also use the guitar pro file for this. The third part (power chords riffing) sounds good!

My impression is that your timing is wrong due to technical difficulties in recording! The guitar and backing track in the headphones are not in sync ?!?
