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.

Original lesson: Doom Metal For Beginners by Lian Gerbino

Here is my first Rec thread. I have been working on quite a few lessons; and only recently have I acquired a better amp/software to record myself with. Thanks for watching and grading me!

Excellent - it's amazing to see a first REC take from you mate 👊Your setup looks great I am looking forward to more of these.

I think you are doing a good job here. Your tone is a tasty choice resembling Lians and we can tell you are digging what you are playing 😎

The main thing to improve on is timing - both your overall timing and several specific places where where the guitar should play in unison with the drums (like 00:50).

Some people rely on their right hand to keep the pulse when playing, however even very experienced players back the right hand up by tapping their foot with the pulse (Lian does this as well).

In your case I think slowing down a bit, and practice while keeping a steady pulse with your foot - will give you results. If you have never done this, it will feel uncomfortable in the beginning. Especially when there is an accent on the upbeat (in between the foot taps).

Keep up the great work - you get a 7 from me.

Hi Nihilist1! Congrats on your first REC take!!

You have a good based here so the next step is to polish details so your metal rhythm technique moves to the next level.

The more you practice this, the more comfortable you'll be changing chords and combining single note riffs with chords. This will help you to feel more comfortable so you'll be able to relax more you fretting hand when playing each chord. We usually do much more strength than needed to it's always good to think on it and see if you can press less and relax more your hand.

There are basically three things to pay attention here:

- The first one is timing. When you play the muted 16th notes downstrokes you are not going tight. A good training would be to isolate that measure that combines 4 muted downstrokes with a long power chord and play it as a loop over metronome (or over a drum loop). You need to get used to the rhythm but also to be able to switch from it to longer notes.

- The second one is the sound of your palm muting. This requires some experimenting since you can get different types of muted sound by adding more or less pressure, but also by putting your hand closer of further from your guitar bridge. This metal style requires a tighter sound. Check out Lian's slow closer angles to see his palm muting approach. You can explore some of these lessons as well.

- Finally, you need to work on the silence between chord changes. Sometimes the chords are muted too early so there is a gap between one chord and the following one. This requires special attention and practice.


Ok mate, I hope that this feedback gives you some ideas on how to continue your practice. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Keep on the hard work!

Hey there!

That is a really descent introduction to REC and a well matched lesson.

I think your setup is just fine - audio is descent, with tone matched to lesson type. You video is clear enough so we can see what both hands are doing exaclty.

First thing to notice is....you need to keep pressing your left hand fingers through all the time the chord is ringing. We can hear how you release the pressure and the end of chord is cut and has some fret buzz.

0:36 Lian keeps holding 6th string while he adds the note on 4th string (you've released the 6th string and than played the note on 4th string).

For better tone of palm muting, you should have a little more pressure on the strings with your right palm. You could also experiment moving it a little more to the left.We want to have a clear, percussive attack with just a little information of the notes you play.
