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 a very good improvement in a very short time. The use of finger 3 for power chords seems to be more comfortable for you since the parts sound more consistent. There are some timing issues in the riff that starts at 00:17, you are most of the time a bit before the beat, so pay attention to it. Something similar happens in the last two chords.

Keep on the hard work! wink.gif

That E chord at 0:17 (and the other 3 occasions) doesn't sound quite right. Are you hitting all the required strings for that one ? Check the tab as it's an uncommon inversion of the E5 power chord. It's a very useful shape to use because the extra notes make it sound bigger. Make sure you're fretting the 2nd fret of the A and D strings as well as hitting the G string.

Other than that, it's pretty good. Nothing else to add apart from to echo the observations already posted smile.gif
