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.

Is it possible to grade a zero ??


Just kidding V-Man, this was very solid ! Your rhythm chops are very good, you're able to switch between palm muted and non palm muted really well.

The only thing that didn't quite sit right was the hammer on / pull off licks from 0:50 onward. Your not quite getting the open D string to sound. It suggests your pull-off technique needs more work than your hammer on technique.

That's my only real observation of things to improve smile.gif

Howdy man!

I agree with Ben on this one, in respect to the open D string pulloffs and I would also add that the last part - from 01:28 onwards is a bit out of balance - I think you tensed up a bit and thus, your were not so tight with the drums. I know it's a little difficult to keep the pulse there, because of the busy drum fill, so that could be a reason as well wink.gif

Most likely just something you can easily fix if you anticipate the move and focus a bit on it!

Keep rocking, good Sir!

Wow, really great!!
the only thing I would criticize is that you sometimes loose a bit your timing. The connection to the drums is really important here, specially in this kind of style

Extra point because of your T-Shirt! tongue.gif
