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 there mate! Nice to see You hard working on this one smile.gif First of all - we need both hands to be visible to give You better feedback. In this one right hand is not clear enough.

Now let's take a look at some important details

1. 99 % of riffing with pal muting is done one the BRIDGE PICKUP (not a neck position like You did). This is why it looses all the crunch.

2. Always make sure Your volume and tone knob are turned to 100% pass. Passive guitar circuits cuts a bit of treble which is crutial for palm muting

3. Your timming is probably the biggest issue here.

4. I like Your tone (I think it will sound great on the bridge position) and You playing clarity is descent.

Overall just focus more on the timming (drum beats). I think it's more a matter of focus than practice.

Well done smile.gif

Hello my friend. It's good to see you doing a REC again smile.gif

Timing is definitely the first thing that stood out to me. You are rushing your chord changes quite a lot. So this means you are in front of the beat. So just relax a bit and slow down a fraction so you're sitting exactly over the drums, not before them.

The power chords near the end - it sounds like you're not picking every note in the chords so some of them sound like single notes instead of chords.

Generally speaking, you're a decent rhythm player.. just need to tighten up the timing smile.gif
