Sure! It can be a REC in order to receive feedback from other instructors as well.

Just letting you know that I posted a rec in the rec section. Let's hope that I'll pass so I can work on a new lesson :-)

Figured out a huge mistake, was really looking in to that part that i'm messing up everytime. I'm sliding from 9/11 to 8/10 instead of 8/10 to 7/9. Changed it and I'm holding rhythm now.
Can it be that one note above the original note can mess up my whole timing?

Working on a second rec btw. Need to pass as soon as possible ;-)

Still working on the part that I'm starting to hate now lol. But I'm progressing in every aspect now. So it works, doing something till it's perfect!

Anyway a question for you. What about anchoring? Some use it to pick fast others say floating hand is better. What do you think about anchoring? (Example: Pink holding pickup)

I always rest the palm of my right hand on the bridge. That's the way to have a more controlled picking for me and I think that for most of the guitar players. Regarding the pinky finger, there are no rules about it. I even change my hand from closed to opened depending on what I'm playing so that's up to you to experiment and see which way is more comfortable for you. Watching some great guitarists videos can be also very inspiring for this.

Yeah friend told me that to. I do have more control when picking like this but the strings are like a bit muted when resting slightly on the bridge. How can I prevent that?

The only strings that should be muted are the 5th and 6th which is great for riffing and also for soloing. If the strings are muted too much, you should move your hand more to your right to decreases the pressure (more over the bridge). And if you need to play these strings without muting, you can quit the palm in that movement doing some kind of vertical movement.

Check Hetfield's right hand in this video:



Notice how he does to alternate between palm muting and power chords doing moving the hand from his wrist.

Thanks that helped me alot again! Made another rec of our lesson. Worked on the comments and practiced it daily during two weeks. I'm able to play it with your take in your timing. It's like the backing track has another timing or just my thoughts?

Hi mate, I'll check the REC take. Do you mean that Metallica's lesson backing is at a different tempo than the main video?

Yeah indeed or am I wrong?
For our next lesson, I'm following your lead. I'll continue to work on Metallica for beginners. Not quiting it, quiters don't win! So I'll work on both.

Only did the metallica for beginners lesson. https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...mp;#entry737753
And practiced some clean playing tips mentioned in my first rec and the vibrato exercise.
If I have spare time when not practicing something from here, I'm playing blink/offspring covers cause I'm at the powerchord punk skill level right now lol ;-)

So I'm open to your suggestion, I trust your guidance!

Nice! I'm happy with that one, love muse! ;-)

Edit: Started with it and struggling with this /8 - 6 the rock slide. I have no idea, how to play it. Watched your fingers a few times.
You're using your middle finger to slide to 8 starting from fret 5? Than quickly pick 6 and add some vibrato? This almost sounds the same but I'm still bad at it ;-)

I start the slide from the 6 fret to the 8th with my third finger. Then, I use my first finger to press fret 6 and add vibrato.

I'm slacking on this lesson, it's okay to learn. I need to finetune it and post it.
Got myself a used bass guitar very cheap.. Instead of half an hour a day, I'm addicted to both instruments.. playing hours lately lol :-)
