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: Palm Muting 16th Notes by Krisztian Lovrek

Hey, I've done this one again after some comments from Ben. Thank you Ben for your advices.
I hope my tone is not too "unusual" here biggrin.gif (that's the word Ben uses when he means your tone sucks!)

I just saw that bit about tone you wrote.. biggrin.gif

Man, this is just brilliant. Major improvement over your first take which was already good. If anything your muting could be a bit harder to get more chunk but it could be the low distortion setting you've got maybe.. the playing though is top notch !

Well done for also nailing that big E inversion smile.gif

Hi friend! This is a good take and the improvement is very nototious! But let me say taht those 16th notes still could sound even tighter! Sometimes sound a bit irregular (not only the tempo, also the intensity). This will be improved with some more practice at a slower tempo. Another thing that you could review is your palm muting technique, you could mute the strings a bit more and put your palm closer to the bridge, to get a tone more similar to the one that Lovrek get in the original lesson.

Howdy man! Indeed, I noticed that the muting should be more obvious - you have to find your sweet spot on the bridge in order to obtain the muting effect. Keep practicing and be more economic with your right hand movements when picking - the less you move the faster you will play smile.gif
