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.

That's some grungey shiz, Herr Hef - I like it a lot !! You played it very well.. all the arpeggios were clear on the acoustic section too. smile.gif

Has YT slightly compromised the audio of the vid or is it just me ?

Goo take Gitarrero! There is a slight difference between the orginal lesson and your take in the first riff... the first two notes timing is a bit different. Besides that, I think that the solo's tone could have more sustain to sound better. By the way you did a very good job!

That's such a nice T-shirt you got there mate! Where did ya get it from? laugh.gif

Christian, the take is very good! I think that you can offer it more flow by tweaking the mix a bit and hitting those bends a bit more accurate, but otherwise, come les Francais would say it 'Chapeau bas' biggrin.gif

Well played! I really dig the acoustic work on this one as well. I think I had that same acoustic guitar!!! I believe I traded it in along the way for something else. The Guitar Shuffle smile.gif

The Guitar Rig preset is a good one but it could use a bit more level on input which is something I ran in to constantly with Guitar Rig which is why I ended up getting the active direct box rack piece with the 20 DB of input gain. You could do the same thing by using a distortion/overdrive pedal with the distortion turned to zero and volume turned to near max. Essentially just driving the input harder so the emulator has more to work with. At that point you can turn the input gain control in guitar rig down (otherwise it will get crazy with noise)

There is a smidge of drift between a couple of notes in the original and your version, but I"m putting it down to interpretation having heard enough of your playing at this point to hopefully know when you are doing your own thing smile.gif But if I'm wrong and your not "interpreting" then it's my bad! But as it stands I think you crushed it smile.gif
