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.

Very good take. Your rhythm playing was great. During the clean arpeggios that follow, the notes need to blend into each other a bit more. To get this effect, just keep the fingers fretting the notes that you've already played whilst you play the next ones.

The lead playing was quite tight as well.. just could be a bit smoother in the flow. Overall, good work ! smile.gif

Hi mate! Nice take! Music makes us happy. smile.gif

Your energy is very good on this take. There are obviously things to improve talking about technique and timing but nothing very serious. Try to make the clean arpeggios sound tighter but without losing groove and dynamics. And practice the solo section to make the faster licks sound smoother and that bend on pitch.

Practice with all those things in mind but don't forget to keep on enjoying it and being happy.

Hey maaan! Nice to hear You via audio interface instead of cam audio. It's waaayyyy better now smile.gif I hope You enjoy Your new gear smile.gif

As for the lesson - good point by Ben. You get really nice focus on all the groove based stuff - It's clear You're in it with whole of Your soul. But I think You need some solid workout for Your right hand. You flow while playing chords is perfect but You "solo hand work" leaves a lot to complain - most of the things You already heard while judging Your previous takes. Still there is to much fingers movement in those slow tempos.
