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 Chris!

This is a good take of this metal rhythm lesson. You are very close to master this one, now it's time to focus more on timing to play each part totally tight. Your timing is not bad, but there is still room to make your palm muting parts sound tighter, since you tend to play a bit before the beat.

This is something that usually happens at first and the best way to work on it is practicing palm muting patterns over a metronome. In this case, the problem appears with triplets so practicing a repetitive triplets idea over the backing or metronome can help. Record yourself while you do it and then check timing.

Once again, this is a very good take, but there is still room to make it sound better. Keep on the good job.

Hey man, this is loads better than your previous take. The first half is a lot stronger but the timing gremlins return during the 2nd half, especially during that descending run where you have to swap finger positions quickly.

Isolate that lick because it's one of your trouble spots in this lesson. Everything else is sounding a lot more solid. Just watch out for the other single note lines too... you were mostly in control but it teetered on the verge of being just slightly rushed a few times, ok?

Gab is right on this one - You try to kep good timming so much, that you even play a little before the beat. There are no hand position isues to fix here. Your pick grip looks tight and I like pick angle you keep while pal muted riffs. 0:25 is probably the most tweaking need. Review what's happening in your right hand at that point. experiment with wrist angle to get that moment done. It's a bit sloppy now but i belive you can do it better smile.gif
