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 there amigo!

This take is almost there - it has flow and your timing is good. What you should focus on:

- move your left hand fingers less - check out 0:04 for instance - see how your finger is at a great distance from the neck? You need to reduce that, as it'll increase your speed and accuracy.
- from 0:34 - the chord shifts could be a little bit more defined
- the bends at 0:39 and 0:54 are a bit weak
- in general - the solo sounds quite rigid - you should try and play it more expressive, ok?

Keep on rocking mate! It is an 8, but it can be MUCH better!

Hi mate, good take! Be careful with the legato during the main riff in both octaves because it's not tight. The same happens in the faster power chords change in the riff starting at 00:32. That bend at 00:39 is not reaching the correct pitch. The solo is ok, but you have to pay attention and improve a bit more your bends there.

This kind of playing needs a heavy punch from the right hand. Also the left hand has more muting job than ever. If You could use Your first finger in a more flat shape, then You could easily mute unwanted strings and even if You hit the unwanted string it would be muted. This would give You more ability to play harder with Your right hand - almost like playing the chords on acoustic guitar smile.gif
