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: Metallica Made Easy by Gabriel Leopardi

I decided to use the backing track with the second guitar in the background because it accompanies the pre-chorus. Should I post a take without the second guitar in the backing?

Hi Skalde!

Good job here! There are basically three things that I think need some focus during the next days of practice. The first one is timing. Try to focus on going tighter with the backing track when changing chords and combining power chords with single note riffs.

Besides timing, I think that both the chords and riff can sound more consistent and cleaner. Put some focus on the sound of each chord and note. Notice the use of dynamics (different intensities) as an expression tool and polish that riff at 00:43 to make it sound cleaner.

Finally, I recommend you to using other fingers to help the one that is doing vibrato. For example, if you are pressing and doing vibrato with finger 3, you can use 2 and maybe 1 to have more strength. Check out some guitarists doing vibrato and you'll see what I mean.

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