Nice! This is not an easy lesson.

Your technique looks very relaxed and promising!

* Guido plays this one with much more swing than you. This has a major impact on groove. Ie compare the slides at 00:09

* Your guitar is mixed way louder than the backing - which means you are missing out on all that lovely juice coming from the arrangement. This does not necessarily impact your playing but it has a big impact on listening experience.

Maybe it would also be easier for you to play with more groove - if you backing were louder in your room as well.

Overall this is very good - if you can add more precision to your timing you will be rocking with the best. You get a 7 from me, keep it up!

Nicely done! I like your sense of dynamics on this one. How you are leaning in to strong power chords then you back off the power of the pick strikes during the single note work. It keeps things from being monotone and gives it a much more sonically varied feel. As kris mentioned, it could use a bit more swing/mojo, but part of that is done by playing as part of the backing instead of playing over top of the backing. The louder you are in the mix, the harder it is to be part of the song itself. It's important to hear what your playing, but the guitar is just one part of the entire song. So for next time play inside the mix a bit more rather than on top of it and you'll notice that you can't help but groove along with it a bit more. Still, a fine performance and solid 7 from me!!!

Hi Steve!

This is a consistent take! As Kris said, it would be cool to hear this one with a more balanced mix but I can say that your playing is very good here. I just hear some small details here and there, mostly when you play the faster passages but nothing really serious.

There is also some room to improve groove and dynamics here but you are very close, it's an 8!

Hey there!

Your take sounds very promissing since the very first few notes but there are some details that you could fix to make it even more professional.

When you play powerchords it is definitely audioable that the pitch relation between notes is not 100% fine. I couldn't notice (at least not remotely) andy cause in your fretting hand so I can assume it is more a tuning process problem. Try to recheck a few powerchords on your tuner - not open strings only. Sometimes you need to match/compromise the tuning. For example tune the E6 string a few cents lower so it will sound in tune on frets and when hit hard with your right hand.

There is a little flaw in the second sixteenth notes runs. Probably more a hand sync issue.

I like the tone. I like your vibrato.

I don;t like your mess between notes. Try to get some discipline at this field as well. avoid unnecessary movements inbetween strums. It will make you sound like a real pro.

At the part of 0:32 here's the real issue becasue it is visible that you don't did the shuffle groove yet. Your picking direction is wrong. It should be based on the delayed second eight note. Not on the rregualr triplet alternate picking. That's the main thing about how you feel and how you body "dances" to shuffle. Each strong beat in the bar should have a downstroke on it. Take a detailed analysis of your take and Guido's original take - you will surely notice. In this part there are also some uncontrolled open string ringing (some spots, not all the time...of course)


You have a really nice potential.Great work!
