> Rules

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.

Hi Renan! Looks like Your a hard worker in here! smile.gif Nice to see Your regular activity at the REC section smile.gif

Overall it's a nicely done job. Let me point some details You could focus on:

1. Tone - a bit less middle and a bit more treble would add some more definition - especially to the beginning. You can also try different amp, distortion device for different distortion type. You can compare to Gab's lesson. He also doesn't play to hard at the beginning but...enough hard to get nice and bright tone.

2. Around 0:20 something went wrong between both guitar parts - matter of timming, but I'm sure You heard it when You were mixing Your take.

3. About 0:40 here is were the tone issue comes again - it's too dark and a big to muddy - sound like a chewing gum biggrin.gif. We need some more attack on this. Les Paul is a warm sounding instrument. Maybe You can try to compensate this with sort of American hi-gain tone family (of course...I don't mean to set the gain to 10 - it's only about the amp character) - You can try some Peavey 5150 simulations (TSE X50) or Mesa Dual Rectifier (LePou LeCto). The basic rule is - most of manufacturers (amps, pedals, multiple effects) will use names like british or american kind of amp simulation. Make some experiments.

I'm leaving some headrom for Gabriel because it's his lesson and He'll give You more detailed feedback about the playing itself smile.gif

Hi mate! Darius comments about tone are very important to have in mind. Regarding your playing, there are many things to improve on this one, but mostly is about tempo and sync between both guitars.

- 00:08: there is a timing issue there.
- 00:19 to 00:24: both guitars aren't 100% tight. This is an harmonization so both guitars should be phrasing similar.
- 00:30: There are some weird things sounding there. Adjust both guitars, to make the chord changes more precise.
- 00:35: The lower bend doesn't reach the correct pitch
- 00:36: I think that you are muting the string too much and the tone that you get isn't cool enough. Experiment with your right hand palm until you get a tone more similar to mine.
- 00:47: Here there are some some guitars sync issues again, check it out.

Keep on practicing this one concentrated on these items and you will master it.
