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, this is not a bad take. You are close but there are many moments in which you are not playing tight with the rhythm, mostly in the faster parts like at 00:45. I also note that your upstrokes are giving more timing problems than your upstrokes so you have to work on these parts concentrating on them. I recommend you to keep on playing this one over the lesson's main video trying to be sure that you are playing tight with the instructor. Keep on the hard work. wink.gif

Hey mate smile.gif I think you did a good job with this one - I agree with Gabe's suggestion regarding the upstrokes. He most likely meant that your upstrokes should be as equal in dynamics as your downstrokes. Now, the tone being distorted and all, it's a bit difficult to figure out smile.gif No worries, I am sure that after you work on the idea you'll nail it! You are almost there with this one!

Keep rocking!

I'm going to be controversial and disagree with my colleagues as I didn't hear any problems at all in this take smile.gif

They might have better hearing than me ?? rolleyes.gif

Aside from what guys said. Try to mess a bit with the tone. You have a lot of 4-6 kHz in Your tone. Those frequencies are not too friendly for our ears smile.gif Also they lack an information about root notes of what You play. You migh try to use some EQ on those. Very ofthe just a few dB's makes miracles.

There is some little timming issue between video and audio and maybe that's why it makes some confusion between instructors. I decided to listen to Your take with close eyes and I think it's really nice with the timming. Only few moments - mostly at the very beginning. This is cause by fully relaxed moments for Your right hand...between strokes. The truth is that the hand has to prepare for the stroke and tense a bit before it hits the strings.

Things that looks simple very often causes problem while professional recordings too. Playing perfectly in timming when You have long breaks between notes is not that simple at all. You have to keep full focus on the drum beats.
