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 dcz! Great to find this old lesson here! smile.gif

Your take has a very good attitude and it sounds very rocker. Your tone is a bit more close to stoner than mine but I like it. The first riffs are ok, and there is just some more room to adjust the timing of it. In the solo section I noted that your guitar is a bit out of tune so the melodies sound weird, also your bending doesn't reach the correct pitch. Check your guitar tuning and work on this melodic part to make it sound on pitch.

Hey amigo!

As Gabe said - your take is shaping up nicely, but the solo section still needs work - I noticed that articulation is a thing that requires a lot of your attention, so I would suggest you to focus on that a bit more, not in this take only, but in general.

Keep rocking,
