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 again! This one is sounding good but I think that it need more practice to see you playing it more comfortable. The rhythm is a bit rigid, needs to be groovier, and the palm muted open 6 string patterns tighter. The solo section need some improvements: your vibrato and the pitch of that bend.

Keep on the hard work!

Hej Marcin! Your right hand looks very tensed. I think You play a bit too soft as well. You could try to increase the strenght and angle Your wrist. You can make wider movements to get goo timming. Also essential thing in this kind of twisted rhythm playing is a regular righ hand work. Take a look at original lesson. Joe's hand works similar to playing regular chords on acoustic guitar - it doesn't stop on those 16th notes - it just makes and empty movement when there tend to be no note. Remember about the details. When trying to master this kind of rhythm lesson You need to focus on very small details. Picking direction is one of those.

Hey there mate! So glad to see that you are so active in the REC zone smile.gif

I think that you did a good job and if you follow the suggestions given by the guys, you will get this one in a better shape. As we discussed, you need to focus more on the lead lines, as rhythm is stronger within you at this point and it only needs some more practice to become relaxed and groovy.

Keep rocking!
