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 George!

This one is going well! There are some details to polish but the overall is very good.

The main thing to adjust in the whole take is timing. Your timing is not bad but you tend to go before the beat, mostly with the down picking with palm muting, but it also happens with chord changes. The original lesson goes tighter with the beat so I recommend you to play along with the instructor and try to emulate his approach to timing.

Besides this please check out the connection between the last chord and the last riff / phrase where there isn't a silence like in your take.

Keep on the hard work!

I can tell you have put in the work soldier! I fear your eagerness for battle is leading you to rush just slightly when playing. You are sometimes just a pinch ahead of the beat instead of playing on top of it. I did like your muting variation. The open strummed parts contrast nicely with the palm muted parts. This is a KEY skill to be able to get your hands around. Being able to switch between muted and un muted gives your playing a lot more dynamics.

I'd say you have a good handle on this one and are ready for the next one. In the next one, focus on playing a bit less ahead of the beat so that you are not rushing, but also don't play behind the beat or you will be lagging. it's a matter of milliseconds so it's often a challenge. Try to play along with the instructor in the vid and be right on top of him in terms of pick strike.

I'd say you have this one in the bag and are ready to move one!! The changes needed can be done in the next one.

Todd

At 00:16 is one example of where an open chord strike is rushed ahead of the beat.

Btw the solution could be to just rase the backing track volume - to make sure your own guitar volume is not interfering with your ability to follow and hear the beat.

Although this is pretty good - timing is crucial for this kind of tight riffing to be truly enjoyable to the listener. You get a 6 from me - keep up the great work!

Hey again George smile.gif

Somehow I think that you're not ready for a head-banging yet biggrin.gif It make definitely too much affect on your playing precision. There are things I belive you could do better with just a little more focus adn maybe as little better playback conditions...louder backing or "in face" position in front of pc speakers or your monitors. There are some little flaus like missing sustain of 6th string at the end or a finger slip on of opf powerchords that made a not disappear. I would also suggest a little wider and more relaxed wrist motion. We adjust the range of wrist motion to a strummign speed...so the wrist neven stops. This guarantee a perfect timing and consisent tone/dynamics of each strum. That how I see things. I know you can do better on this one smile.gif
