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 mate!

Great to see this Lian's lesson at REC! smile.gif

I think that you'll get this one soon but there are two elements to pay attention and work:

- Vibrato: The melodic section requires more vibrato work to get the right feel.

- Timing: I notice timing issues when playing the fast pal muting riffs, and well as when playing the galloping. The tempo is really fast so it's tricky to play the overall tight. I think that you'll have to practice a bit at a slower tempo.

Your tone is good and your dynamics suitable for the lesson. Work on those things and share a new take.

Hey there!

After watching a few times and comparing to original lesson video, I have similar observations to Gabriel's.
General issue here is the timing - it tends to go off quite often.

As for vibrato, it's not much visible in the melodic part, while Lian has a wide and agressive vibrato in his version.

About the speed part - I'm not sure is it more the tone you use or hand sync thing, but definitely it could have been a little clearer. Things get blurry and those fast picking runs sound not as tight as they could. It's definitely worth to recheck this smile.gif

Cool -

I would like to add that since you do nail the fast rhythm on some parts, this is likely an endurance problem. So solve this - spend time on slower speeds and try to be as relaxed as possible!

You get a 5 from me - because I think this kind of rhythm needs to be heard as a steady flow in order to be enjoyable to the listener. However I do not think you are that far from nailing it - provided you follow the advice and don't tense up /push speed.
