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.

Cool lesson, I tried to get the tone as close as I could and practiced this one to work on changing chords in time. It's been a while since I made a video, so the REC nerves were back a bit. I have a bit more time these days, so hope to be recording a bit more. Thanks Darius for the lesson!

Hi Yoncopin!

Great to see a new take from you!! I think that your work here is very good. Considering what you said about REC nervous, I can imagine that you could do it even better!

I only note that some of the single note parts could sound cleaner, and that there is some small room to improve your timing and dynamics, but nothing really serious, this is a very consistent take.

Your tone is very close to Darius, but his guitar is louder and has a bit more presence in the mix. There is a "stereo" effect in his take that seems to be done later in the mix. That's what makes it sound bigger.

Ok mate, I hope to see more takes from you! It's an 8!

Nice!!! Your tone is killer and matches very well. The best part for me is your use of two finger vibrato on the chords. It's very controlled and deliberate as it should be. You keep a very good sense of groove through the entire thing. I enjoyed your entire performance. I don't give these out often but I'm calling it a 9 from me smile.gif

Hey there!

Awesome to see you take over this lesson. This kind of playing is actually what I feel most related to, these days smile.gif

Let's start from tone. I think your tone if had less gain, would be a perfect match for my vintage rock series. I's more fat and warm than the one I did in the lesson. Mine i more related to plexi through a bright input - more chunky. Your has more compression and muddy response which i genrally love while using single coils to overcome their natural sharpness and bite. Yours i more tube-dynamics-correct I would say. Keep in mind we speak of subjective things. Rather a brainstorming about the differences than pointing out a problem. This tone is definitely rock-correct and juciy smile.gif


From a technical point of view, main difference between our playing is a difference in picking method. Your wide strums doesn't give anough attack in my opinion. Your right hand looks like sort of "strum-sweep" through the strings. I relay my picking strength on the energy that a thin pick gives while being firmly pressed through the string so the pick literally hits and stops on a next string. This makes playing looks softer than it's real audiable impact is.

I have also noticed that playing on the distorted tones is radically harder than you would consider it is on a clean tone. I would definitely go for less saturation in this take to keep more crunchy sound of muted strings.

There are some spots wher it's not 100% correct with the lesson like additional note around 0:43-0:44 (while it also has a problem on unwanmted strings noise). At 0:47 dynamics boost(crescendo) is not audiable). at 1:00 G chord something weird is happening - maybe not exactly the notes that should be there even if all still are from G. There is also the end where we play open E6 string for exchange with open strummend E7 chord. You made it just a break or percussive accent.


Besides the little stuff mentioned above I think it is still a good and pleasant take becasue of you descent timing, descent tone, overall noise control (beasides mentioned moments), your care of tuning and pleasant vibrato.

Well done!
