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.

Wow! This is excellent take, I can tell that you made a great effort to make this work, and it pays out - it does sound good, and all the notes are there, you haven't really missed any. I admire your perfectionism! smile.gif

Now, this doesn't mean there is not room for improvement! smile.gif Try to increase pick attack on those single notes in the beginning. I have a feeling you are not creating a full tone with the guitar. When playing these you should really pick the string as you mean it (similar like you did for the powerchord section).

hey man! This is a very good take! It just need some little adjustments to be a 10 take. wink.gif
The clean arpeggios notes sound a bit weak, you should play it strongly with the pick to get the full tone that Ivan is talking about. The downstrokes sound good but the upstrokes are the ones that are sounding weak. The end of every round there,, those four notes (at 00:12) should sound smoother... let every note song more time to do it. The same happens at 00:48 where the silence to go from the power chord to the distorted arpeggios should be shorter. Well done mate!! Keep on working! smile.gif

I agree with the guys - this a good take smile.gif

For me, the things that needed the most improvement were when you shift the chord shapes with your left hand, especially the change at 0:35 and 0:43. They were a little premature.

Also, you strum with your hand very close to the edge of the fingerboard. Try bringing it back to the same position where you were picking the arpeggios at the beginning.

It sounds really good! You timing is fine and you played notes very clean! Good job!
There are a few things you can work on
1) When you are doing picking try to use up and down strokes and keep them consistent it will help your right hand technique!
2) Try to do more attack and dynamic when you are playing a slow part
