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.

The kind of REC is back! Great to find a new lesson from you here mate!

Your playing is killer on this one as well as your guitar tone. The only detail that I note is that it seems that the second (or maybe first) string is not perfectly tuned so some open G and D chords don't sound totally good.

Other than that this is a great take! Keep on rocking.

Hey Ize, great to see you back in the REC zone and with one of my lessons, no less smile.gif

Your rhythm has always been a strong point and here is no exception. The alternate picked 16th notes are tight and the chord changes are on time.

Speaking of chord changes, you seem a little uncomfortable when moving from the C5 to the open G chord so use this as a hint to work on that.

You play the riff at 0:52 different to me but technically there's nothing wrong so I'm not deducting anything for that.

As Gab said, one of the strings is a bit out of pitch which ruins your D chords but overall, this is another strong take to add to your collection!

Hey there!

Nothing too add. Tight rhythm/timming and nice tone match to the lesson. Only the tuning of G and D chords could be better. Maybe try to make a compromise between open strings and fretted notes tuning when you tune the guitar. Very often open sting intonation is slightly off comparing to the frets. It doesn't look like you could have any issue with too much pressure on the strings so I bet it's more about mentioned tuning compromise smile.gif Overall - great job!
