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.

Welcome Back!! It's great to see you doing REC again!!! I hope you get the chance to do some more shred bootcamp too!!! This was is really well done. Yet still, it doesn't show off your skill as a lead player! You do a fine job on the rythm here. Your synch is nice and tight and you make good use of your muting skills. Your sense of timing is also on display. Overall this is well played and I can tell you are in to playing it which always helps in terms of making it an enjoyable performance. I think you are capable of playing far more complicated bits that this to be honest. This is well done but I'd like to see you dig in to one with some lead work!!

Hi George!!

Great to see you back!! Congrats on your first new REC take! smile.gif

It's cool to hear this one on 7 strings guitar! Your playing is tight here, I only can notice a small difference in the section starting at 00:44. I think that you could improve your rhythm a bit there by comparing and trying to emulate Darius groove and dynamics.

Other than that this is very good! Keep on rocking!!

Those are some in-your-face lows 👌

To help you add that final bit of tightness I suggest you try to be as relaxed in your right hand as you are in your left hand.

Also I can see you go back and forth between grooving with the beat using your head (I can't see your feet though) - if you managed to groove non stop I am pretty sure this would also be reflected in the quality of your playing!

Keep it up you get an 8 from me!

Hey George!

As usually your rhythm playing delivers some pleasure while listening. Despite some little flaws the overall image of the lesson is good.

I like your care of muting in breaks. Nice and clean. Your strumming is tonally quite even.

You tend to rush a bit at some spots...usualyl at the beginnings of new parts. I would also like to direct your attention to how long the sustain should be. For example: at the beginning you cut the first strum too early. Time matters. Always make sure you did check the exact value for each note.

Tonally I have not much to complain but there is this unpleasant low boost on your 7th string. Yeah...it usually sounds cool but in this case it overtakes the mix. Try to see if you can do something about it.
