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 again Marcin!

Clean and precise rhythm playing and the lead is smoother as well. Around 0:30 that bend is just a bit too sharp smile.gif Otherwise, I think it's just a matter of practicing and becoming more experienced to get things into super shape, with the lead playing.

Keep rocking,

Hi Marcin! Nice take! As Cosmin said, you are doing a good job with this lesson. The overall will sound groovier with some more time of practice because you still need to feel more comfortable / relaxed while playing it. And off course, that bend at 00:32 clearly needs to be improved.

Very nice! Tight rhythm and execution. I have no additional thoughts. It might be just me but Your hand looks like Your playing very soft and things are getting even harder when You try to be precise and squeeze all the tone directly from Your hand. I don't know if You have some stage experience but the more gain from the hand...the less gain needed from the amp. Also..being able to play very hard and precise at the same time makes You able to get descent metal tones even from the amps that are not as full of attack like Mesa or Peavey. Gain from the hand is a huge advantage. Gain is an enemy on stage - feedback issues on high volume. Maybe try to make Yourself sort of challenge and try to decrease gain -1 point every day You start to practice, then try to add right hand strength to compensate the loss of gain. The basic rule is "You get what You get on the amp abut You always try to do everything that's possible with Your hands to get the tone You like". This topic is much more complex but it's worth rethinking for the sake of future playing smile.gif Anyway...well done smile.gif Deserved pass smile.gif
