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.

Very good job my friend! I was watching a few times carefully to spot some issues but aside of just a little timming problems and maybe one or two moments of unwanted string ringing under, I haven't found anything truly wrong smile.gif You have additional points of keeping 3rd part strted with and upstroke (that happens to be forgotten in many takes). I like You clean playing. You picking looks accurate. Muting is clean and tight and there is a good proportion between palm muted and not muted notes. As for the timming at some points it sounds like You move whole phrases in time for just a miliseconds before or after the beat. Maybe it worth trying to increase backing track volume when recording. What's most important - Your picking is consistent and there are no uneven breakes between notes. At 0:31 we can hear that mentioned noise from unwanted strings - yopu need to flatten your left index finger just liek with barre chords (but do not pressure) to get rid of it.

If You want to get even more profit from this lesson I advice to try different type od distortion. You has to have a lot of sharpness due to ability to sound that "crunchy" on neck pickup (especially humbucker" and with a medium picking strength.
Things will get harder if You use different (more muddy, less gainy kind of distortion). It will make you have to play much harder to get wanted amount of sharpness (even on the bridge pickup position) and this will affect relaxed picking hand state you have at the moment. It's not a must - it's an offer for a challenge with yourself smile.gif Overall - great job! smile.gif

Very good, man. Your alternate picking is very consistent and your tonal control is sufficient as well.

As Darius mentioned, there are a few moments where the timing goes a little bit in front of the beat but nothing too outrageous! wink.gif

Just keep going with developing your alternate picking. I'd say you were ready to tackle something else which will challenge you even more.

Hi Petr! Good to see this one at REC!

I've been following the progress of this lesson at our mentoring program and you already know what I think about how much your improved your timing on this one. There is still work to do to make it sound even tighter but based on what I've heard in the part I only want to say congrats and keep on the great job!
