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.

Hi mate! This is a very tricky lesson for beginners! You dd a great effort learning the whole piece and I think that you will be mastering this one soon if you continue working hard. The most important things to work on are timing, there are many sections (mostly the faster ones but also some of the slower ones like the lick at 00:18). Your bending technique also need some more practice, because you don't reach exactly to the pitch that you should get (don't miss this lesson for bending: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Beginn...String-Bending/ ). And finally you also have to work on Sweep Picking picking technique (that lick at: 00:48). You will find many lessons at the site.

Working on exercises diary will really help so I also suggest to check my intensive technique course and let me know if you need help with the lessons.

So well, it's not a bad take! you are really on the right track, just keep on the hard work!

Hey man! I think that since timing and articulation are the main things to focus on, in this situation you should slow everything down and focus on these. Aside from Gabe's great advices, I would suggest that one you are comfy with all the parts at full speed, you should play against the original recording, and why not even record against it and then listen to see if you are in perfect synch with it smile.gif

Hi there, nice effort !! Like the BC Rich too, rockin' the pointy look there ! cool.gif

You generally do a good job, just need to polish some details is all. Nothing massive.

Gabriel's already highlighted the same things I would pick up on which is timing and bending. There are a few places where you go in front of the beat. This is characterised by sounding as if you are rushing. If you ever hear this in your own or other people's playing, that's what's happening there, just playing in front of the beat. Once you recognise that effect you can make a conscious effort to avoid it smile.gif

String bending just needs some more work as well. Just to get them notes up to pitch. At the moment they're falling just a little bit short, so they just need pushing up a tiny bit more so they're sounding right.

Sweep picking. I have an issue with sweep picking being in a beginner lesson at all. It shouldn't be in there, in my opinion and then you wouldn't have to worry about tackling it. So I'm not going to criticise your sweeping here because in my opinion it's not your fault. You're still getting a handle on bending and timing and it's way to early to introduce confusing techniques like that. smile.gif

So just those 2 things to polish up and you'll be getting there !
