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 Petr,

Great to find a take from you here. I think that the overall is sounding good but there are two main elements to work:

- Main riff: The main riff is not sounding clear. The riff is based on a double string melody and the notes are not sounding clear when you play it. Sometimes there is only one string sounding, while others you play both but not strong enough so the melody can't be heard clearly.

- Timing: There are some parts where your timing is not tight, for example at 1:05 and at 01:45, identify this and other areas and work on them.

Besides this, there are many other parts where your rhythm playing is very precise, so congrats on your great job!

Hi Petr, this is a cool riff section to learn. You've still got some things to improve yet. Here are the most important elements to work on:

-Clarity. As Gabriel said, you're not quite getting the chords to ring our properly. Sometimes we can hear you pick only one note distinctly, sometimes we hear two but the overall sound of the chords is not consistent enough. Have a bit more confidence with hitting the chords, all of which only use two notes.

-Palm muting. Your palm muting is ok but sometimes you accidentally palm mute the chords which you don't need to. So make sure that you correctly switch between muted and non muted sections of the track.

-Wrong chord in the 2nd riff. On the riff starting at 1:18 you are inserting a B5 power chord when it should go to an E5 power chord. If you're not sure, just look at the chords you play during the breakdown starting at 0:48. The sequence is A5, E5, C5 - C5, E5, A5. Well, when the drums come back in at 1:18 you play those same chords but with the added F5 chord in between. I hope that helps smile.gif

-Timing. Timing is not too bad throughout the lesson but you're very hesitant with that E5 chord during the breakdown at 0:48 and beyond.

Hey Petr! You did a good draft of the lesson - you know where to place your finger, you know what kind of articulation to use. Now you need to work on precission. Your palm muting seems to have proper proportion between percussive sound and the root tone of palm muted note. From the other side we hear that your are not that precise with the timing and sometimes some unwanted noise of open string gets involved. Also....notice a chord fix suggested by Ben. Thsoe are things to be fixed but you're on the very good path. Well done smile.gif
