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.

Sounds decent enough, with a bit too much gain if you ask me, but it's OK. Your picking is quite good, but need to work a lot more on vibrato, and a bit more on timing.

So, vibrato is something you need to practice slowly with the metronome. Try Ben's "Vibrato Odyssey" lessons for more info.
As for timing, you need to really get into the groove and lock your notes with the drums properly.

Hi Wello, this is a good effort. As Ivan said, some future work on your vibrato will be an asset (but I say this to everybody because vibrato is very overlooked and is such an important aspect of a guitarist's sound) smile.gif

Your timing was quite good, I thought.

The main issue was probably string noise, like you said yourself. The ability to control and mute string noise comes with time but try and pay attention to your right hand and try and use the edge of your hand (the pinky side) to sit lightly on the strings to mute the strings that are lower than the one your are playing.

Too many unwanted sounds, try to reduce your gain, or use the technique of palm muting ! Some unspecified vibrato, but it's something that is acquired through patient practice,and you just missing that final little glance and it will be fine !
