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.

This is much better Andres.. you've got the palm muting happening properly now !

There's a couple of areas where some of the arpeggios are a bit rough: 0:07 and 0:35. Picking arpeggios can be tough.. you did well but as always things can be improved smile.gif

Good work.. it's nice to see you took our advice and worked on it !

Awesome improvement man!! Your palm muting work is very good know, very precise. Well done!! smile.gif

There is still room to improve timing in some little sections but you are very close to master this one.

Ha! You took it seriously and it worked out! smile.gif Very glad to see Your progress.Nothing to add ...just a piece of well prepared lesson with only few tiny flaws.

Just curious... According to the music You like to play, haven't You consider bridge pickup replacement? Mini humbucker instead of single coil? There are a few "choosen ones" within rock players who use Single coil in bridge position...but probably 90% of rock/metal players uses humbucking pickups. You could go donw with the amp gain and have less noise (Singles are pretty noisy). Also Single Coil in bridge position can be very harsh.

It's not that I'm an enemy of Single Coils (though I love them!) but watching You play I see You are going straight through the humbucker tone. I've noticed a lot of hum/buzz in some previous lessons takes - mainly solo lessons. Maybe it's time to rethink some positives of having humbucker in the bridge position?

1. Mote output
2. Better signal to noise ratio
3. Warmer sound (more solid mids, less treble)
