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 Rock Guitar: Advanced Power Chords by Guido Bungenstock

Awesome lessons and great practise in muting chords with a lot of gain. I`d also love feedback on tone and what can be done EQ-wise. Wanting to get a bit more in to that area (Seems like the video clips a lot on youtube - not sure if that is due to new camera/phone or just that it is not finished processing. Let me know)

Cool!

Playing wise your timing sticks out as something that needs more work. It is not super obvious, but to me it is a bit fluctuating and most obvious when you are ahead of the beat.

This kind of touch sensitive sound is great for rock rhythm - but it poses a new challenge: You need good control of your picking hand dynamics to keep it somewhat even sounding.

The outside notes at 00:33 feel like they might be incorrect? I am not 100% sure but they sound very different from Guido's so you might want to look over that part.

Sound wise I would probably dial in a little less distortion and work on getting more bass and low midrange in there. You are def in the ballpark though!

All in all this feels like pretty solid work - you just need to polish some more to make it enjoyable to the listener. You get a 6 from me!

Hi mate! This lesson is a good choice!

You have a good energy on this one and I think that you are close to master the lesson. The main issue that I note is related to timing. There is room to make everything sound tighter with the backing track, you tend to go a bit after the beat. I think that the combination of palm muting with open chords, and the rhythm variations are the two things that make it more complex. I would put more focus on this elements during the next days of practice.

Besides timing, the second thing that needs adjustement is your work on dynamics. This should be improved after you master timing, but it's important to have it in mind. Check out the way Guido uses dynamics to give the right accent to each riff and part.

I agree with Kris about tone and other things too.

That's all mate, let's continue talking at the mentoring thread!

Around 33/34 seconds in, as Kris Mentioned, you miss just a bit of the notes. You have very good energy here!! And great overall vibe! But you may need to focus a bit more on your dynamics as was mentioned (just being able to strike harder/softer in different parts to give the song a more dynamic feel) if you always use the same intensity of pick strike, it can flatten out the feeling of a song. You are very close on this but just needs a bit more polish! Solid 6 from me smile.gif
