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 Hajduk! Good playing on this one!

You've learnt the whole thing really well! The main thing to improve on this one is your timing. There are many parts that are not totally tight, for example at 00:04, 00:09, etc. I feel that you tend to go a bit before the beat so please focus on fixing this issue.

Besides the timing, I think that there are some unwanted noises here and there, but I'm not totally sure because the audio of your video is not very clear. It would be also a good improvement in your videos if you start recording audio in your computer and then add it to the video. Check out this tutorial:

That's all, keep on the good job!

Hey there! AS Gabriel said - you did a lot of good with this lesson but some things as timming and tone need a fix. I also remember we were talking about your right hand position and shaping. I have to admit your right hand looks a bit unusual. I can't see this clearly on this particular video but I guess you hold the pick on the print side of your right index finger and you need to support the grip with other finger but I all looks too tensed. I think You could spend some more time to fix your right hand.

Also...a tip for recording. Always try to place amp and speakers in the same direction and place the camera not near to, but away from and straight to the speakers. This way You can get best possible tone from the camera audio recording. Otherwise you'll have phase issues and those will remove some frequencies and make your audio sound boxy.

Hey Hajduk, great to see you still working on this one. This take is an improvement to the previous one. I think that you should keep practicing this lesson as it exposes quite a few things that you could work on to take your playing to the next level. First thing I'm noticing in this take and the previous one is that there seems to be an issue with the staccato playing technique. This is the technique where you stop the string from vibrating to cut the note short. What I'm noticing is that you seem to lift your finger off the note or loose too much pressure of the string which creates noise. The trick is to play the note and then just slightly loosen the force of the fretting hand finger to cut the note short. You also need to add some palm muting here to really make those notes stop (and sound staccato). This technique is used throughout the lesson so working on it will help you clean up your playing in terms of unwanted noises. Second detail I'm noticing is that the tempo of this lesson seems a bit too fast for you to play comfortably so transitions between notes for example 0:00-0:11 don't always feel smooth. It might be that there is a small sync issue between your fretting and picking hand here (due to lesson tempo). There are some details in the 00:00-00-13 section of the lesson such as adding more palm muting and pinch harmonics on certain notes. It is hard to tell from your video but it might be that you didn't play those?

This lesson is very tricky timing overall so don't feel bad about it as not only the phrasing in terms of rhythm is tricky but also the instructor tries to play behind the beat (check 0:13-0:22) for a clear example. Notice how he intentionally leaves the drums and hi hat to play and then play just slightly behind it. This gives the lesson a laid back, swingy groove. Good thing is that you played that laid back feel nicely and since you can play it well when there are single strings in play, my guess would be that your fretting hand dexterity and sync with the picking hand is holding you back here. My overall impression is that you focused too much on the fast legato lick which you nailed in the video and that distracted you from previous sections which might appear easier.

Overall - I think that it is good you are practicing this lesson and I'd like to encourage you to keep going as progress from your first take to this one is evident. It is a difficult lesson to play and it involves quite a few tricks which when you master will definitely mean a lot to your playing. I really hope that I didn't discourage you or something with my detailed feedback, I just wanted to be as constructive as possible smile.gif Please feel free to PM me or post in my board if you have any follow up questions or need any help with this one, I'd be glad to offer advice.
