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?

Hey there!

First of all - that's a very cool choice of lesson. Lot's of great stuff that is reasonably easy but still gives some joy and demands some attention and time.

Answering your question - it is usually better to avoid using additional guitar tracks because they cover your main guitar part and makes it a little harder to capture all the details for rec purpose. Sometimes it's cool if you can add the additional guitars for your own youtube channel and promotion but you can make not public video embed in rec, that will have different audio mix(no additional guitars besides the ones from original backing...if there are any).

1st tip.....do you have a piece of cheap guitar cable/ damaged cable or cable you are not afraid to waste? If yes you can cut the pieces and put them inside the springs of your tremolo system. You will get rid of that nasty noise you get at each break/pause.

2nd tip - your vibrato mechanics are on a good path. You did your homework and it looks like you know what to focsu at. There is one single thing you need to improve. Use all the fingers behind the fretting one. This way you will use more than one finger to bend the string and the strength will split making things much easier smile.gif Of course it doesn't apply for index finger.

When you get to the first riff (after open powerchords) you are slightly off with the timing. Fisrt you mute the powerchord too late than you start next lick a little too late as well. I don't need to get into details becasue once you repeat the riff things get on their place wink.gif
