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 mate! Great to find a new take from you here.

We've been discussing about the main elements that you need to adjust on your playing and specifically on this lesson. Each of these things show improvements but there is still room to make this sound better. You told me that you were starting to get tired of practicing this lesson so I think that the best would be to work on a new one and keep playing this one once or twice each day to keep on polishing details:

- Timing
- Articulation
- Dynamics
- Definition and cleanness of some parts of the riffs

Keep on the hard work!

Hi man, good effort.

You need to gain some more control over your picking hand. At the moment, you're picking every note the same but you need to develop palm muting, which Gabriel uses in the lesson from 0:26 onwards. It will help get that punchy sound he has during that section.

You also need to work on coordination between both hands. Your fretting hand is still developing but you will want to make those 3 notes at 0:30 be heard properly. This means you need to pick every note and make sure the pick hits the string when your finger frets each new note.

Keep up the good work!

Fisrt - the good news - most of feedback from previous take, has been taken seriously and you made us hear a huge difference between take 1 and this take. AS has been mentioned - there is still room for making things sound better. First of all - guitar is an instrument witch amazing range of available articulation and dynamics that shapes the tone. It is necessary to copy all articulation notation from the gp5 file or PDF tabs..supported by main lesson video. Next step for you is to add articulation tool called palm muting. Try to focus on one thing and give it a try as long as it will not sound properly. Proper palm muting will decrease voluime of "note height information" and increase percussive noise and low boost. It should be clearly a contrast for an open notes in listeners ears smile.gif
