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 friend,

This lesson is getting VERY close! I can say that the rhythm section is sounding very tight regarding tempo but also regarding the sound of your chords and palm muting technique.

The solo section is also getting close but there are some little timing issues, mostly in the trills passage, as well as some pitch issues in some of the final bends. I recommend you to isolate the trickier parts of the solo which are the only sections that are giving problems on this lesson. Practice them as exercises, create variations of them and record a new take in around 7 days.

I can see that you'll be mastering this one very soon. Congrats mate!!

Hey there!

I wish you wouldn't remove the previous take so we could compare. I've reviewed our feedback from previous take and I have to admit I can honestly say it is no more just a draft of the lesson but a nice take with just a few things to fix. Rhythm section has a most visible improvement though...you have to tweak the run between 1st and 2nd riff - it's not in perfect sync of left and right hand.

Your vibrato is obviously something pretty fresh for you and I can notice you don't feel totally relaxed and in control of it. At the same time your motion has a good perspective - you know the mechanics and you try to execture it the good way. Someday it will work just fine if you keep walking the path you do now.

At around 1:12 you have a part where you play on first string only. I can notice some unwanted strings noise leaking between notes you play. You need to make sure your right palm is resting on the low string, while you play on 1st string. Try to move it a little more towards the neck and use opposite, soft part of the palm (oposite to the one we use to pal mute).

My overall observation is that your playing is improving and your work does not go for waste. Playing instrument is a tricky skill, that demands some time to have night to day improvements, Keep your patience and the work you put just like you do now, and you'll see how things will get easier and easier smile.gif

Hello man, you're almost there with this take. Just some minor issues to work on.

First is hand coordination. It's mostly good but a few little bits indicate that your fretting hand and picking hand are not in sync, like at 0:11 and that descending run at 0:16.

You also have a tendency to rush things a bit, especially with your picking hand.

So, hand coordination and timing are the two areas that need attention for things to sound more solid, ok? cool.gif
