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.

Nice one ! The first noticed thing that I can hear is - swinging in rhythm ! There you have to be much tougher than it is now.
Still you have no full control over the power chords, and therefore chord changes aren't concretes as they should be! Keep practicing !

I like this take! You did a very nice job! Your sound is pretty good as well!
A few thing I would suggest! Your timing is a little bit off, it's not major and if you will spend some time practicing with a click you will get it perfect! This is a very good lesson to get your timing together so I definitely recommend to spend time with a metronome!

Hey Dude, nice take cool.gif

Your general approach is good but I would agree with Sinisa here, you need to make some of those chords a bit more staccato. Cut them off and allow the pauses to occur because they are also part of the whole feel. You're filling in the pauses sometimes by picking extra notes so work on that area to make it have a bigger impact ! smile.gif
