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 Anese. This is really, really good. Your rhythm playing is very tight and the chords and arpeggios ring with clarity.

Your tone is quite appropriate too. Punk doesn't use that same level of gain as metal bands so a mildly distorted, fuzzy gain is the right kind of sound. It is maybe a little too fuzzy for my tastes but that could be due to the limitations of your gear / setup.

I've only deducted some points due to your guitar not being quite in tune. Try to be more vigilant with this. Guitars will go out of tune if you're practising many times before the final take so before you record the video do a final check smile.gif

Hi mate! Good to find this lesson here.

You shared this one first at the mentoring thread (LINK) to ask me about sharing it or not here and the main thing that I noted to improve is the one that Ben also noted here: tuning. Check out if it's a tuning problem related to old strings or bad calibration.

Your playing is very good on this one except on the last melodic arpeggios where your timing could be a bit tighter, but nothing really serious, just put more attention to this section.

Keep on the hard work!

Hey there! From the good things - your rhythm is solidn and consistent and picking hand strenght seems to be proper. As Ben mentioned - tone is a bit fizzy but proper enough for the type of music.

From the bad things - tuning. Incorrect pitch might destry even the best performance. Always try to give not even a bit less attention to guitar tuning, than you give to whole lesson. Ability to keep guitar in perfect pitch is as skill itself. If you spend some more time on guitar tuning, you will for example show us how good you can control the pitch with your left hand (proper strings pressure of fretting hand) fingers. If you already feel the limit of string pressure that will not make the pitch go up, then you can convince the listener only buy having your guitar perfectly in tune.
