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 Carlos!

This take is very close mate. There are just a few details to adjust in order to play a flawless version. Here we go:

- The faster part based on 16th notes has some timing issues. There are some moments like for example at 00:45 or 00:48 in which the rhythm is not tight. Please listen to your take with attention and try to detect these issues. There is also an accent missing that is played at the first note of each group of 4 16th notes.

- The following part, the riffs that go with drum cuts, also need to be polished regarding timing and dynamics. This is not so serious but there is room to give it the right feel thanks to the correct use of dynamics and groove. Compare your take with the original and you'll note the difference. It's very small, but it's there.

- Finally, the last melody sounds with pitch issues. I think that your guitar is not perfectly tuned. Check it out!!

That's all by now mate, keep on the hard work!

All in all this sounds and looks good.

If you want to get closer to Lian's sound it has much more presences/brightness, whereas your sound is much more bass heavy.

There is room for improvement (see Gabs comments) - but I still felt this was an enjoyable take, and for this type of "wall of sound" track - timing is not quite as crucial. So you get a 7 from me, keep up the good work!

Hey there again! Looks like you work hard on your skills on a regular basis. That's great.

This lesson is quite easy and what makes you do any kind of mistakes....or rather lack in precision, is most probably the lack of relaxation. The rule is - the faster you want to go, the more tension you need to release anytime it's possible. It means - in fast passages the dynamics of each note is differenty. Generally the accents are always being played hard while the "fills" are soft. I'm not sure if this is the case of video and audio sync but your picking direction wonders me. At some spots (tremolo-like picking) it looks like you start from and upstroke. This is just a suggestion. Accents in this lesson should be consistent and in thise case it looks like each 8th note accent should be a downstroke.

Try to let your wrist move more freely at the beginning part. Push it more outside the guitar and angle. Just like "towel-less hand drying". Wider, more fluent motion will make these powerchord sound less harsh and more solid.
