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 For Rockers! by Adrian Figallo

My first Rec. When I uploaded it to youtube, I got a message saying it was "detected as being shaky". I hope that's not a comment on my timing. I ended at the same time as the backing track, so I take that as a good sign :).

Hi there, not a bad effort at all. Your timing is pretty good. The areas that could be improved the most would be your right hand as it misses out quite a few of the notes, and your chord shifting.

Just one thing that will make the riffs sound cooler as well would be to make sure you get the slide of the chord, like at 0:28. You want to play the chord and then shift it up a semitone, that's how you get the sound of 2 different chords even though you only picked one. So if you just tidy up the little details like that then it'll sound a lot tighter and full cool.gif

Hey man! Congrats on being a hard working man of the GMC family and for a nice take! biggrin.gif As I told you and as Ben observed too, the details are the things that you have to focus on, just like with the Alter Bridge lesson. Patience and a bit more work to get things going smoother is what you have to go for.

Keep on rocking!

You did good! The problem here is that your left and right hands are not connected! If you will spend some time practicing picking exercises this problem will go away very fast!

Well, you are not too far but it still needs more practice to sound perfect. Your right hand can't reach the speed in some of the riffs and sometimes both hands sound out of sync. Besides that I think that you should pick stronger and check the pick angle when you pick because the notes aren't sounding full most of the times.
