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. You have to review your right hand movement and the sound that you are getting when you do palm muting. At first, I note that you are moving a bit your right hand fingers, and that's not the correct motion. You should start your movement from your wrist (as you do) but there should be finger's movement. It seems that this movement makes you pick with a weird angle or intention and that generates that noise every time you play palm muting during the gallop. Try to reach the string with less pick inclination and stronger. Also check your palm muting technique, check the strength and the position of your palm to get the correct sound.

This is a good lesson with information to improve your palm muting: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/A_Meta...urney_Lesson_1/

Ok, keep on working on these things and please contact me if you need some more assistance.

Hey mate! As Gabe said, the wrist should do all the work and the angle which your pick sits at is very important. Notice that slashing sound that can be heard each time you hit the strings? Well, that's a sign that your pick is too angled. I will definitely recommend you to take a look at this video right here: http://youtu.be/RhJx5vfZLxo

Darius explained the concept very well, so I think you will have a lot to benefit from watching this.

Please focus on being as tight and play as clean as possible in the new take that you will record, deal?

Yep...those notes get a little out of control. Fingers movement is great for very fast notes "out of nowhere" but it only support the main strength source which is the wrist. If You concentrate to hit each accent on th 8th note from the wrist and than add those two 16th notes from the fingers then it all should work as a one, solid machine for gallope smile.gif Still need to practise but You're pretty close. If it's possible please consider doing another take with less gain so we could hear the strokes better and have a more objective point od judgement.

Some right hand concepts work only on high gain. It's always good to practise on crunch - this will give you more information about what Your playing sounds like. If You can master some technique on just a tiny distortion it will work on the higher too....not nescesarry in the oposite. And...organize Your strength. Give more for the 8th accents and a bit less for the fills (16th). Cheers!
