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 an excellent take. Your metal rhythm technique is so tight and precise. It sounds like a final version of a power metal album. There is nothing to fix, just keep going!! smile.gif

Hi dude, good work.

Your picking is very tight but your chord changes sound a bit awkward in places, mainly the first few power chords at the beginning and again at the end.

You tend to interrupt the flow of the changes by moving to the next chord too early so if you can get the changes sounding more seamless then your playing will sound a lot better. It's only a minor fix smile.gif

Hey buddy!

Welcome back! I think that Ben pretty much said everything there was to say, so I will only add my congratulations and, if you want to improve the take with Ben's suggestions, slow it down a little, implement them and then speed it back up, while being aware on the changes and staying relaxed smile.gif

Keep rocking, mate!
