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

I spent some quality time with the slow version of the backing track this week, paying particular attention to: - Synchronizing left and right hands - Letting the chords ring as long as possible before moving my hand and minimizing the movement of my left hand - Emphasizing the palm muting, and making sure all the strings of the chord ring on the non-muted chords P.S. I notice I got a couple of comments on take 1 after I posted take 2. Gabriel even posted to take 1 a couple of days after he posted to take 2 :). I'd lock or delete the old takes if I could, but I can't post to this forum.

Not a bad take, but you still have to pay attention to your right hand work, you are missing a couple of notes and sometimes you are struggling to make it, specially with the faster parts. Give it a couple of more rounds at a lower tempo and only speed up whe you can really make it at that speed, otherwise you train yourself to play sloppy, and we don't want that.

Hey Rammikin. This is an improvement over your other takes. Your right/left hand co ordination could still be improved and Marcus is right about missing out some notes. What's happening is that you're still trying to use a combination of muscle memory and brain power to work through the take so it's taking too much concentration and it can make your hands stiffen up and completely miss certain notes. It's happened to me and I know the feeling well. It just means you need to take more time to get your hands really knowing the patterns, to the point where you don't even have to use brain power to think about them smile.gif

Hey mate! We have discussed these things in other lessons, in your thread wink.gif Pay a little bit more attention on making all the notes sound clear and finishing all the phrases in a relaxed manner- exactly what Marcus and Ben pointed out!

Keep on rocking!
