Original lesson: Jamaica Rock by Jonathan Burgos

Hello I have been working on this lesson for about 70 days In a first time I worked the legato section which seemed to me inaccessible After a few weeks of metronome, I reached speed to work with the BT Nevertheless, this passage remains the biggest difficulty because it is difficult to reach the precision on the following notes. In my opinion, this is the best recording I’ve done in the past few weeks It’s not perfect, but I want to focus on my other lessons.

Hi MisterM!

This take reflects that you've been working really hard on this one. It seems easier than it is. Jonathan's playing is full of small details as always. His dynamics, articulation, and other elements like slide, vibrato, and groove are really inspiring here.

I think that you already learnt and mastered most of the parts and that this take obviously passes. Maybe you are a bit tired after 70 days of practice, but if you still want to keep in in your diary routine, I would continue polishing details. You can make even more focus on those details.

The only lick that can sound cleaner is that fast one at 1:10. This one is the most difficult and from my point of view is very cool! Why don't you keep it in your diary jam practices?

Also, do you usually dedicate some time to create your own variations and jams over this same backing? (You can answer this question at the mentoring thread).

Congrats on your hard work mate.

Cool!

What strikes me most here is that you seem to play the first part on autopilot - and then around 00:35 you start caring about all the subtle stuff (and then you do it really well btw!).

Jonathan is spot on with the subtle stuff even in the beginning, even though this part rhythmically is not very challenging.

Overall your playing is very convincing though - keep it up you get an 8 from me!

Hey there!

As usually it is a pleasure to listen to your take an at the same time a hard task to point any stuff to complain. Overall it is a nice piece of music that has it's own charm when it's played by you. But...let's compare some little differences with original lesson becasue I guess this is all about.

In the beginning rhythm section you tend to hit open string or open note in the spot where muting should be applied. When I listen caregully to original take, I notice he's very precise on the muted ghost notes. Sometimes you need to flatten the fingers and use more than one to mute the string - especially on the natural harmonics spots. You probably limit just to release the pressure on particular fret.

at 028 there is something unclear between these two notes - they overlap

In general original take is "half-muted" most of time. He uses wider range of palm muting intesity and that makes the dynamics range wider. It also make the open notes really come out to the "surface."

at 0:35 Johnathan starts with alternate picking while you make several downstrokes in row. To be honest this differ from original but I would do the same

at 0:45 the bend isn't accurate. In original tak it reaches a particular pitch. In youor take it sound more like quarter-tone ornament

at 0:47 there is a difficult lick because it has a slippery timing to it. Not sure if these licks are posibble to reproduce exactly the way author meant to. It related to our personal flow I guess. You sound with different flow because you try to put these notes to a measure. Try to make thaem a little more lazy. That's again a hard task

at 1:06 original differes because the ghost, percussive notes between are make with regular strumming motion, not just the noise of pick resting back on the string

In general there are some details worth capturing. You brought this lesson really far even without them. Well done
