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 guys, here's another one!

I mainly chose this lesson to distract me from the slow soloing lesson which hopefully will be ready very soon. In the meantime I wanted to do something not so hard and since this is a punk lesson I though 'what could possibly go wrong?' and gave it a shot wink.gif

Again thanks to anyone for your good advice! - I'm actually really glad that I finally subscribed here smile.gif

Hey Lenni! Very good take mate - aside from some let's say, not perfectly defined chords and timing slips towards the end, where the octaves kick in, I think you did well! Keep practicing more carefully and you'll nail this without any trouble!

Hey dude, nice tone man, i like the attitude and overall the whole take, i think that you can work on your right hand and keep it agressive but relax it a bit more at the same time.

I like your mutting technique, super duper dry.

You gotta work on the timing for the solo, is not as easy smile.gif

Good job!

Good job man! I like your rocker attitude on this one! smile.gif I think that you have to get a more defined sound of your power chords in the first part and work on the timing of the octave chords melodies. Work on those things and you'll get a perfect take. Keep on rocking.

It sounds very good man. You have the proper attitude. The thing you need to work on is the strumming hand. Just try to relax more, and keep the motion going with a steady flow. It will improve your timing as well.
