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 take Nava! smile.gif And a cool guitar smile.gif As far as Your timming and the rhythm parts seems to be quite good , there is still a need to work on that short phrases like 0:06 for example. Also my good advice for the future would be to try play harder with Your right hand. IT sounds like Your gain is pretty high but You pick the strings very softly.

Hey mate! As Darius said, that phrase and the ones similar to it, need more focus as they lack definition especially towards their ending (i.e. the last note before moving towards the riffier parts found after each of those scaly phrases)

The lead part is pretty much ok, but it sounds a bit rigid. I would incline towards saying that more slow practice will help you on making it sound more natural.

Keep rocking mate!

Hi mate, I have nothing to add to what Darius and Cosmin said about this one. Work on the different sections to master the timing during the riffing section and to give more feeling to the melodic part. Keep on practicing this one until you feel more comfortable with this one.
