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: Time To Gallop by Ben Higgins

I just barely passed this one some time back. Trying for a better take. :-)

Hi J,

This lesson is getting close but it still has timing issues. The galloping is not consistent yet and there are two main things to work on:

- timing
- dynamics

About timing, it's the gallop pattern which isn't sounding clear yet. You tend to play the pattern a bit "hurried", "faster". A good practice would be to play galloping over a drum loop on one open string, just to focus on the rhythm. This is also a good exercise to train the other element to improve here that it's dynamics. If you check your right hand movement and compare it with Ben's you'll notice that he accentuates the upstrokes played on the beat. This will give the gallop a clearer accent and overall sound.

That's all by now, keep on the hard work!

Hi Jon, wow this lesson is a golden oldie.

Your main hiccups lie in areas where you've got to do more than just gallop. For example, the single note line at 0:19. This is unclear. I think you're fretting the 2nd note of the lick before the 1st one. You want to make sure you get al 4 notes happening clear and on time.

Other than that, just focus on making sure that:

full chords are being played when they need to be, not just root notes.
Palm muting when it needs to be there and no muting when it shouldn't be

Those little details above are probably the most recurring ones and are just little fixes really.

Hey there! You managed to make the essential things from the lesson quite well but still there are spots where your left hand looses contact with higher strings and lets them ring, creatin unwanted noises. Another thing to improve is you right hand resting point - palm muting is not consistent yet. Some notes sound more muted than others. Of course it's not like everything is messed up but at some points it's really visible and creates sort of distraction while listening to whole take.

Timming - that's the main issue - you still seems to be tensed and the gallop sound a little "square". I'm sure some more practice will a litlle more relx should do the job (it's all fun right? smile.gif )
