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.

Hey man! It's a good take. Everything sounds ok excepting the riffs played between 00:42 to 01:13. The open 6 string palm muting and some of the higher notes have some timing issues. Work on that section and you'll get a flawless take. smile.gif

As Gabe said, pay attention to the timing and try to play cleaner smile.gif that would of course mean, play everything slower so that you may internalize the sounds and execute them without flaw and then, gradually build up speed wink.gif keep up the good work!

I agree with the feedback by Cosmin and Gabe. Also you could improve your tone by adding a bit more mids imo

I agree with all the comments above. Everything is close, but you still need to make it a bit more tighter, and to do those vibratos a bit better. Tone also needs some improvement.

To my ears I mainly noticed that the opening riff was a little in front of the beat - just a little rushed.

The other main thing is your palm muting could perhaps be even harder.. try taking an even heavier approach with your right hand to get that 'chug, chug' sound.. at the moment it sounds too light. Sometimes the guitar presets that we use have a different distortion makeup that doesn't respond as well to palm muting.. I've experienced that before, especially with plugins.. but try experimenting with the heaviness of your palm muting to see if that makes a difference. smile.gif

Other than that, I thought it was good.. your vibrato is getting better and it's from the wrist, which is a good thing smile.gif
