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.

Now the tone is muuuch better! Nice, bright and clean with no lack of treble smile.gif You've also improved Your tuning. There are still some timming issues like 0:31. I'm not quite shure how to rate Your take - I know it's hard to play in time while there is only a rhythm guitar in the backing track. So...considering Your improvements and the fact there is no precise drum beat I'll pass You this time smile.gif Good job! smile.gif

Hi mate! I think that this take is better than the previous one. There are some parts where you had timing issues that now sound perfect. There are still some licks, mostly from the solo that should sound tighter but you are very close. Work one the solo phrases until you can play them at the correct timing and then connect everything.
Keep on the hard work! wink.gif

Hey mate, congrats on the improvement, which is fairly obvious!

I don't have any other things to add aside from what the guys have already pointed out, but I will say that the lead part, needs a little volume boost in the mix, as in this moment, it's a bit buried in there..

Keep rocking,
