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.

Hey there again!

Working hard...you say ?smile.gif Similar observations to a take for other lesson you've uploaded currently. Your timing is almost perfect - just several points where in the pro studio you would have to rerecord to clarify some doubts. Aside from that it's clean, well intonated with very good, even control of tone from your hands.

There is one additional "but" for this particular take - the part that starts around 0:58. You have problems with unwanted strings noise. You need to get yourself a few muting habits for your left hand. Don't take your fingers away from the strings (the ones that you've played before). Use them, to softly touch unwanted strings. Your left index should be the main "noise gate". Make it flat and keep in touch with all strings below. That would help to avoid situations like this one. Aside from that it's a really good take.

Hi Rated,

Again, your playing is precise and clean in most of the take. I think that your tone fits really well with this backing, and that you look comfortable with the different parts of the lesson.

The first thing that comes to mind while watching this take is that you need to be more connected with the rhythm of the song. I think that there is something lacking regarding groove and that requires not only guitar practice, it requires that your head and body connected more with the rhythm of the backing. I'd like to see you "dancing", "headbanging" or at least moving any part of your body (head, foot) with the rhythm in order to internalise more the overall groove. The main goal of this is that we will see it reflected in your playing, that is not bad regarding timing, but it's a bit "rigid", it's not groovy.

Now that I write it and think it, I think that this can be related to some of the other takes that I've seen from you. So please try it and let me know (at the mentoring thread), how it feels.

Hi Filipe, this is another really good take.

The tone is just right, a vintage amount of gain which responds well to a hard pick attack.

The power chord sections are totally fine - the only place where I don't feel the right sound is going on is after the 1:00 area, when you're playing those micro bends on the single note riff. They sound out of tune for some reason I think you need to be a bit more subtle with them. Bend them and let them reach the zenith of the bend right before you go to play the next note.

Other than that, great stuff!
