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 man, I'm pleased to see that you applied our advice and have made some progress with this.

Your timing is much closer to the lesson now. The rhythm playing is in the right area but when the patterns get more complex then you find it harder to stick closely to the correct timing. But for the first part of the lesson, you're much better smile.gif

I see that you're also applying palm muting now - good work!

One main issue for you is your fretting hand. It can't keep up with some of the runs in this lesson. If you're fretting hand is not comfortable with certain runs then it will make your job difficult in trying to keep good timing, because you'll always be limited by how quickly and smoothly your fretting hand can move.

So, to recap, I would say that your picking / strumming hand is getting closer to what the level demands but your fretting hand still has some developing to do. At the moment, this lesson is simply too fast for you overall. You don't have enough time to get all the correct movements in. Make use of the slower backing tracks and / or play it along with a metronome at slower tempos to lock your hand coordination together.

Hey there!

In deed this take is a visible progress comparing to the previous one. There are still things to fix. Still there are wrong notes happening around 40-42 second. It's also visible you will need much more time to master the fastest runs from this lesson. They are almost like from a different level of lesson so it's quite natural. at the moment you tend to loose the syncs between hand and it's more like "to start and end with the notes that starts and ends the lick" rather then having a proper placement for single notes inbetween. Please do not misunderstand me (don't want this to sound rude, rather a good advice" -I think it's temporary a lesson on a too hight level for your current skills. I think being in your shoes I would go for a few lessons on a lower level to prepare myself to challenge this one. But of course you're the one to decide here smile.gif If you choose to work on this one wi will help you as much as we can smile.gif

Hi friend!

Great to find a new take from you, and even greater to find that it sounds a lot better technically (big audio/mix improvement), and that your playing is also getting better!

I notice improvements regarding your playing on each of the elements that I've commented in my previous comment (for the previous take) so this means that you are in the right track. There is still a lot to do in order to polish each riff, to adjust timing and to make the changes smoother but this will happen with more practice.

I'm not sure how you practice this one, but I recommend you to alternate between playing the whole thing along with the backing and working on small blocks to be able to focus on each riff and detail.

This is a very promising second take, keep on the hard work.
