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 nice to see Your take over my lesson smile.gif This is workout #2 while You wrote #1 in the title of the post smile.gif

Back to the playing. Your right hand mechnics look very good. I also like the picking strength. Aside from the missing chord You mentioned I found some little flaws in the middle section. I think You could focus on 2 things:
1. Left Hand 1st finger muting all the string below the one You play at the moment
2. Better separation / contrast between open notes and palm muted sections.

One more thing - 3rd part i play starting from the upstroke while You did the down strokes same, as at first two parts of the lesson.

I think You are very close and You got really huge potential but You need to take care of details so all Your take would sound absoluitely professional. Got a a deal ?smile.gif

Hi mate! Great to find that you've already had feedback from the creator of this lesson. I think that Darius pointed the things that you should improve on this lesson. By the way you're also on the right way with this one, and I'm sure that we will be ready to start a new alt picking lesson soon. Keep on the great job!

Hello again matey! smile.gif

Darius said it all, so just a take a little time to internalize the changes, practice slowly till you incorporate them and presto.. You should have the improved take!

Keep rocking!
