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 mate!

It's great to see you in the REC zone again! Please focus on the timing, riff definition and correct palm muting technique. At this point, in the verse part for instance, your palm muting does not sound tight at all because you are probably not muting the strings in a proper spot. Please experiment with the spots - further or closer to the bridge in which you will get the right palm muted sounds.

Please focus on slowing down and getting the right definition of the riffs as well as the timing, as at this point there are too many spots in which things are a bit too faulty. You can always record over the original version to see the differences smile.gif

Keep rocking,

Start of Your take was very good even with the timming - later it goes a bit of but still not that bad at all! smile.gif There are some moments when notes fell off the track. For example those octaves on the beginning - You could hold the fingers a bit longer - You break them to early. Also....try to add wider right hand motion when playing those octaves - they are not clear enough - they hide under the backing.

Hi Ram! Great to see you working hard as always! As my friends said, this is not a bad take but it need to be polished. Most of the riffs are lacking definition and to be tighter. The only way to improve this is with practice, focusing on this things, and using slower backings and metronome. If it's possible dividing the lesson in exercises to adjust each one and them combine them.
