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.

Hey man! Very good job in case of timming smile.gif

Let's point out some issues

1. Your pinky finger get's flat while playing B power chord for example. It's not good. Look at Gab's lesson - he does a regular fingering for this chords. Looks like You replace 3rd finger and make a baree with Your pinky at some chords

2. At the part around 0:25 those muted breaks are not clean enough - we can here some noises coming out while You hit those muted strings. Try to experiment with You left hand pressure. Maybe You hold it too tight.

One common advice for all Your playing - try to change positions in the last possible moment. You break the shape at the end, before You go to another. The whole trick is to play it till very end and make an ultra quick skip to another chord. This is partly a reason of Your noise issue. For example 0:29 You moved Your hand while there should be 2 more of eight notes muted and than fast skip. You just passed the chord too early smile.gif

Hey man, that's pretty good. Darius is right in his observations. You do have a habit of changing chords too early, thus robbing the riffs of their overall effect. To me, that's me biggest criticism.

The breaks could be a little quieter too, yes.. but I think if you can work on your chord changes you'll make the biggest leap in improving. It was very nearly an 8 from me, but I think you can nail this lesson better. smile.gif

Hi mate! That's a nice take. Darius already marked the things that I think you should improve to get closer to master this lesson. By the way t I would like to mark that you keep a very solid rhythm during the whole lesson so the work must be focused on your right hand.
