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: 6 Power Rock Ballad Licks by Guido Bungenstock

Absolutely love this style of playing, so no doubt I had to give it a shot! I had to cheat a bit at 0:34, since I am a long time away from executing the original lick at that speed.

Well Done!!! There are a TON of licks and a TON of notes here. It's a virtual clinic on putting techniques together in context. I can see that you've put a lot of time in on this and it's been worth it. The speedy licks are quite tricky and you pull them off. As Gabe mentioned, there are some issues with the trem bar and the vibrato and the dynamics. These are things that will get better through simple repetition. You've got the basis of each of the licks down so all that remains is to polish them.

Your picking technique here is quite impressive. There is a lot of alternate picking going on which requires very tight hand synchronization, especially on the quick runs. If you lose your hand synch, these licks will fall apart. The good news is that you keep it nice and tight.

As for what could be improved, as was mentioned, dynamics are a big part of these licks. It's a subtle part of playing that is easily overlooked. Listen to Guido play the long scale run/licks, notice how he varies his pick strike intensity and his palm mute intensity to create a very lively, dynamic vibe.

Overall I'm impressed with your take here and I look forward to hearing your next one! Solid 7 from me!
