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.

Original lesson: Muse Goes Stoner by Gabriel Leopardi

Gabi, on the explanation you wrote that the tuning is standard , but I guess it's Drop D. Nice lesson to come back. Haven't found the way to use those LePoin plugins in Reaper so I used one from Pod farm.

The only thing yo can do, is what you love!

Hey duder! Good to see you back again!

Ok, you've got good timing and the tone is appropriate for this sort of sound.

There's only 2 areas where it could be better, in my opinion.

-Right hand... it's very rigid. For a slow riff like this you should be able to let your wrist move more independently from your forearm. Obviously your forearm will move too to some extant but your hand is barely moving at all, creating more tension because you're using your whole arm to move your pick position.

-The higher pitched motif in the main riff is not always clear... the first note of it sometimes gets lost in the string buzz. It could be that you're not picking it cleanly enough so it's being buried.

Good stuff!

Hi mate! Great to see you rocking this one! smile.gif

I agree with Ben's comments about your playing and I can say that the first thing he marked is the main reason why I was going to mark that one of the things you should improve on this one is timing/groove. Your riffing is rigid, lacks groove and sometimes has little timing issues, and the reason why is the fact that you are not adding wrist movement on this one. Relax your hand and let it dance freely with the backing.

Thanks for notifying about the tuning issue, we'll fix it. Your tone is good on this one but feel free to contact me if you want help to set the poulin amps.

Keep on rocking.

Hey there coffe! smile.gif From my observations it's mostly the right hand issue - your timming is close to perfect but your hand looks very tensed. Your wrist is almost frozen and main strumming source is your forearm. Look at Gabriel's original lesson. Even if he's playing one directional strumming, he still uses his wrist - take a close look and see those little movements. Your tone is in fact proper for the style even if slightly different than Gabriels proposition smile.gif
