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 again mate!

I think that as an overall, this take is very good, but you should focus on the following to make it perfect:

- the phrasing is a bit too rigid - it is technically correct but it doesn't flow - this needs time and focusing on interpretation
- the faster licks are just a bit blurry and you should isolate them and practice them slower until you get them right - 01:22 - it's just a matter of finesse, as I see it here wink.gif

Keep rocking mate!

Hi mate! Good job on this one! I fully agree with Cosmin comments, you still have to continue playing this one to get a smoother playing and also isolate those fast licks near the end and practice over metronome as technique exercises.

Keep on the hard work!

You're too cruel for Yourself smile.gif Your take isn't bad at all smile.gif I will even say it's pretty nice. Aside form what has been said - Your bends seems to be better. It sound like You took a bit of time to focus on those and this is very good smile.gif Aside from just a few moments the tuning is very nice and tone match also. For my private taste I would go a bit down with the distortion to keep better attack and less blurryness on the palm muting smile.gif Great job! smile.gif
