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: Basic Metal Rhythm Guitar by Marcus Siepen

I took into account all the criticism regarding the previous videos, I worked on the rush before the metronome. But I recorded guitars as double track.it turns out so far is not very tight, but I hope all this will come with experience

Hey there!

I'm afraid I still notice the "in front of the beat" issue. Probably a little more in the first half. Second half is not that obvious at this aspect - sound better timing-wise. You tone a slightly thin. A lot of attack cuts through but it lacks some of the bottom (rather bottom mids than lows). It lacks some of the info about the pitch of notes you play but of course it's very articulate so I belive you make the palm muting sound just right.

Beingo able to play very tight when it comes to double tracking is a difficult thing and often requires some extra time even from a pro players while recording. It's great idea that you challenged it at this level because it exactly show how precise you are and can often clarify some details that could have been random in particular takes. You did a really nice job on your double tracking and the longer the song plays, the tighter your double tracking is.

Probable the things that do differ between L/R tracks are mainly the unwanted noises of open strings or scratching noise while position shifts.

Watchout at he final chord. You press the G3 string a little to hard and instead of muting, you maki it sound like Esus4 chord.

Besides this I have no other complaints. Well done

Hi mate!

As you've already said, the main thing to improve here is timing. The whole thing sounds like a bit "hurried" and that's because you are going before the beat. I don't think that this is tricky to fix but you need to dedicate some time playing over the backing track, maybe repeating one riff and trying to go tight with the drums. Use your foot or head to follow the rhythm and feel it in your whole body. Closing your eyes while playing can help as well.

Polishing timing, and also unwanted noises are esential for this style and also to be able to record two similar takes that you'll use paned in the mix.

Keep on the hard work!!

Very cool.

The things that prevent me from getting super nice chills from your playing is:

* timing - as pointed out - could be more convincing

* Your right hand could be a tad more aggressive. I don't necessarily think you need to adapt some new technqiue, rather just become a bit more confident with the lesson in order tp push it some more.

* Other than that your tone is a bit on the bright side/thin. While I do appreciate it has more clarity than the original - it also lacks some of the low midrange to give it heaviness.

Well done you get a 7 from me.
