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.

Hi mate! Great to see you working on this lesson! smile.gif

There are many strong points here, and just a few details to fix in order to make this one sound flawless.

The intro riff is played correctly with only down strokes and palm muting. The problem is that you are not playing the riff tight, I notice timing issues. You tend to rush a bit tempo. I think that your right hand is not moving naturally with the tune's groove. Even when using only downstrokes, there must be an up and down motion that helps to keep the groove flowing.

The following part also needs some timing adjustment. (The open string patterns starting at 00:28).

From 00:40 to the end, I don't notice important issues. It's sounding good!

Keep on rocking!!

Wow very cool,

Even though I agree that there are some timing issues here - this is an energetic take that instantly inspired be to play metal on a LP. I can tell you are feeling it!!

I would also like to add that you should work on your posture - having a bent neck like that when you practice will def hinder your performance . You will suffer from fatigue much more easily. This can be prevented with physical exercise - but absolute best is if you also fix your posture. I am working on this issue myself as well.

Keep it up you get a 7 from me!

Nice REC!!! I can tell you are clearly getting in to the tune which always is a good thing. When you are feeling the music, it always comes through in the performance. You have good energy and a good vibe on this which is very important. It's a good performance here overall. I can see you playing this on stage and having a good time doing it. As has been mentioned, you are just a pinch off tempo about 30 seconds in when you start doing the open string bit. This could use a bit of tightening up. Try to isolate just this part and slow it down a bit to find where the accents fit in just right and then speed it back up and you'll have it. I don't think it's enough to stop you from moving on to the next challenge. Good job and solid 7 from me!

Hey there!

Powerfull lesson! Your tone seems to be just right for the purpose. I also think that your essentiall hand mechanics doesn't leave much to complain. Your main problem is timing. You rush a bit....especially in the parts where there is no constant drum beat (beginning for example)

Your performacne is very nice. I don't find much to expose. Just try to think of one thing. Whne you double track your guitars, you need to establish exact ending of notes and the way you mute them. your doubletrackign is descent besides that little detail. Focus on each break and you'll easily notice that a kind of "tail" appers in L o R channels differently for each one. That detail should be clarified.

In general for double tracking you need to know your riff for 200% becasue every single difference will be exposed.
