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 MisterM!

This lesson keep on improving on the things that we've been talking at the mentoring program. However, these elements still have room for development. I'm talking about dynamics and swing.

About dynamics, I feel that you are playing everything soft, I would pick louder and manage dynamics to give more expression to your playing.

Regarding timing, you are playing everything even with the beat, check out the original lesson, how Muris plays a bit after the beat to get a cooler rhythm feel to this style.

That's all by now, you are on the right track, just keep the hard work!

I agree with Gabriel on the little more of picking control needed. Some parts tend to almost disappear in the mix. Same as with previous take of different lesson - play a little after the beat rather than straight and square, As for my personal preferenes a think there is too much of "line out" high frequencies in your tone - shows when you hit a little harder than most of notes played here.

Hi there, Darius made a good observation about tone. There's a little too much of a 'Strat sound' when you pick harder. That metallic ringing sort of sound? I know it is a Strat so they're going to have that single coil snap to them but you need a more rounded tone.

One thing that may help you get closer to Muris's sound will be to use only downstrokes during the sections of 0:23-0:25 and 0:33-0:37. Using alternate picking is very accurate but it's maybe too accurate. The timing is too even. I know this might sound strange to say but part of the swing sound that Muris achieves is because he uses the same stroke direction which makes each note sound even more separated from each other.

Or, just try using the thumb like the original lesson. See if it makes any difference and, if it does, either stick with the thumb or try to apply the same feel to using the pick.
