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 Mister M, good to see another take from you

This is a challenging lesson and I would say that you have a better time with the lead guitar than with the rhythm.

The rhythm is good from a timing point of view but the issue is with clarity. The hard part here is nailing all those little single note lines that link the chords together. Your picking is good but it doesn't quite manage to keep an even note velocity so that all the single note licks can stand out clearly. That's my main critic with the performance.

Tone - I like the tones you've chosen, both the clean and the gain. My issue is that I think you have some sort of 'double' effect on it, to give the impression of double tracking. To me, this detracts from the playing and makes it hard to focus on your main track. It also adds a different ambience to the backing track and has a strange reverb quality.

The lead guitar section is very good, though. I like your playing here. Well done smile.gif

Hi MisterM!

Another great take from you! I could follow how much you've been working lately in your funk rhythm technique and I have to say that this new take show really impressive results. Your playing is much tighter than the previous takes that I could see of this and the other lesson you've worked. There is more room to make it sound tighter, and also with more dynamics (talking about the rhythm parts) but this is quite close!

The solo section sounds great. I like the tone, and your phrasing is flawless there.

Congrats mate!

Hey there!

There's a lot opf good things to be said about your take but...I know you're here to get familiar with what's to be fixed smile.gif

First thing I've noticed is what Ben mentioned - a kind of double tracking, or very short reverb (ping pong type) that makes it sound like one guitar playing over another. At some point it also causes phase issues. As long as I dig both - your rhythm and lead tones, I believe this "multi-guitar" sound does no good for overall take of yours.

I had a feeling like your right hand could be strumming a little wider. Unfortunately I'm not sure if the lack od solid strum for each chord is a execution thing or a tone side effect.

As for the lead part there a slight lack of consistency in your picking. You have a good sense of timing and most of runs start in the proper moment, but inebetween those 16th note groups the rhythm starts to flow a little too much. Also notes that are first after string skipping, tend to loose some of the impact.

Aside from above I have nothing serious to complain. Well done
