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 mate! I think that you are doing a good job with this lessons. There are two things that I think you could improve to make a better take. The first one is your timing, trying to play everything tighter with the drums. The second one is your tone, which sounds a bit weak, it sounds like if you would record it by line without an amp emulator. It need more body, to sounds fatter.

If you concentrate on both things now, you will be able to provide a killer take.

Weird thing...I didn't have similar feeling about the tone - for me it doesn't sound like "line-in" smile.gif But I think the overall audio quality takes aways a bit too much high end. Those kind of lessons where the guitar is synchronized to the bass drum are hard to judge if the guitar doesn't cut through the mix. I would go for cutting some low end. If it's possible I would search for some other ways to record the whole thing - esxternal mic? Try to avoid audio compression under 128 kBp/s.

Anyway You make a great progress and this take is quite nice. There are some monets when You miss the timming but work of Your both hands look descent smile.gif

Hey mate - Gabe and Darius have spotted the issue with the tone - tell me are you using the AMT cab emulation out or the other one - the one on the far left side? You should use the cab emulation out for best results! We have spoken a lot about this lesson so you know my thoughts smile.gif
