> Rules

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.

A very groovy take from you Coffeeman wink.gif

There were some issues with timing and I think the G string might have been a little out of tune ?

Apart from that, it was a good version although your guitar could have been louder to drown out the saxaphone ! tongue.gif

This sounds awesome man, timing is quite good and tone is great. There are some small mistakes here and there, but in general it's for a strong 9, because you have some issues with bending (it's not strong enough).

BTW, I have one suggestion regarding picking, I noticed that you do lot of EP for the main riff, perhaps practicing AP will help you get the better tone, just a suggestion.

Hey coffeeman! I agree with the guys! The guitar should be a little louder and bending is a detail which you should work on a little more to get things blazing wink.gif Keep up the good work mate!

The tone is great! it's great for the style,

You can play some Gilmour with that tone! biggrin.gif

I think you rush a tiny bit here and there, so look out for that,

I agree with Ben, the G string feels a bit sharp,

Just those couple of things imo,
