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.

Hey Ville! Nice aggressive tone and interpretation mate! The only thing that I noticed is the fact that you rush a tiny bit in the 16th notes parts which occur between the legato parts. Otherwise, we have discussed this one in your thread wink.gif

I say that overall you did a good job mate wink.gif

Nice take my friend! smile.gif Muted, triples on the 6th string sound like You are trying to "find the tempo" while playing them. Wider right hand movement should help smile.gif Also I think You might work with Your tone. For me it's too scooped and bassy. If You avoid to much middle cut off You could make guitar lower in the mix but still keep the clarity and information about the notes played. Anyway You made a great job smile.gif

Hi mate! That's a very powerful take! As my friends said, there are some timing issues during the solo so you have to pay attention to those legato licks. Your riffing is very tight and your sound pure metal. Well done.
