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: Iron Maiden Style Lesson 2 by Gabriel Leopardi

hi. i took a long break from this lesson, i think this may be take 5. started a new you tube and deleted everything off my old account. i did this cause my personal info was on old one and i signed up new with none of that info. im wierd like that. never liked social media, i have all my old takes on my hard drive. im about to post alot of old rec takes, should i put them in the forum for a way to compare new takes to old?

Very good work Dave! I hear some tiny things to take a close look at...like the 0:15 this vibrato with the first finger. Maybe try to make it with the wrist - You can see on the Gabe's lesson - He does it with the wrist. You will then add the fulness and smoothness to this one smile.gif Now it's a bit distracting. I would also foucs more on th trills in the 17th and 18th bar (according to the tabs). I mean the moment You hit the string after changing each position should be more synchronized to the drum beats smile.gif

In my opinion those are just a few details and aside from them it's an excellent take smile.gif

Hey mate! Darius spotted the exact things that I noticed - the only ones that require your attention, for this take to be perfect!

Congrats for being such a consistent dude!


PS: Never told you this, but that Gibson looks extremely nice!

Ok mate! To summarize what Cosmin y Darius said, the main point to fix are bending (you don't reach the correct pitch always, and for any reason you lose a bit the tempo when it's moment for a bend) and timing in some phrases. You are getting very closer. Keep on the good job!
