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: Metal Metrics 4 by Cosmin Lupu

Hi guys, finally got some thicker strings to record this cool lesson! I used Reaper, GR4 and my Oakland guitar to record this. Christian

This is a rocking take Christian.. this type of playing really suits you. cool.gif

One point to work on definitely would be the riff starting at 0:31.. be careful not to hit more than one note because the note on the A string should be played cleanly. It should sound like a clean, 3 note phrase.

Your timing is great, good palm muting and if I'm not mistaken, your tone has improved ? smile.gif

Good going Christian! I see that you have improved on the stuff we discussed on tongue.gif there's still some work to do on polishing the phrases, but overall the take is good. Follow Ben's advice, to get things rolling cleaner wink.gif

The subtle nuances of the microtonal bends and the combination of natural and artificial harmonics would be the things to linger a bit on smile.gif I like the slide and bend with vibrato at the end, although you could make it even more aggressive biggrin.gif

Well played, with all the elements added, but I think your timing needs to be more tighter on this one. It sounded a bit shaky on the bends as well. All in all, very good, but needs to be more tighter in every sense.

Very good take! I would agree with my colleagues that your basic technique (timing and p.muting ) are very good!
Of course this would be perfectly still needs a bit more exercise, but generally sounds good!

Very RAWKING take smile.gif Your palm muting is very good here. Getting articulate picking motion while muting takes practice and it's clear you've put some in. In our video chats, we tend to palm mute almost everything, I think it's rubbing off on you! smile.gif Sounds very cool. Also, I can hear/feel the vibe. Which is very important, there is a groove here that comes from you digging what your playing and knowing the piece well enough to enjoy it. This is a great thing to see. Getting beyond being able to play a part and actually heading to performing/enjoying the part is important step. If the player doesn't put something of himself in to what's played it just sounds like a recital, not RAWK!

The guys are right dead on where the tips are concerned. It could be a bit tighter and cleaner in spots and those things are the polish that is well worth the effort. Combine that with the groove beast that you put in to the playing and BINGO!

everything said already, rocking take christian, check ben's advice for most of the points, but i want to talk about your palm muting technique.

when you play the power chords your tone sounds very nice, open, sparkly and powerful, but when you go to palm mute, even with a strong groove going on, the TONE is getting muddy.

i know the palm mute is made to get that feel to the music, but, in order to give a bit of spark back, work on your right hand, it needs to touch less of the string in my opinion, there are two ways of achieving a brighter tone during palm mute:

1. Move your right hand away from the bridge and into the joint of the strings with the saddle itself
2. Don't push so hard the strings, just touch em.

good take!

Good playing man! One of the things that I appreciated of your playing is your vibrato. The overall is just perfect however when you reach the middle of the lesson you have some very little timing issues. It's an 8 for me! Good job.
