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.

Original lesson: Basic Rock Guitar: 16th Rhythm by Guido Bungenstock

This was quite demanding for my right hand! I'm sure I will get cramps tomorrow :)

Hehehe this one is a monster!

Great job here! This one is very demanding and I can say that you are playing tight most of the parts. I just hear details regarding timing is some parts, mostly when playing the fast 16th notes on 6th string. That's where I notice that you don't keep timing totally tight.

As this is a fast lesson, some parts are played a bit hurried and there is some room to polish them (for example at 00:12, or the last lick).

By the way, you did a killer job, congrats.

Impressive work!!!! Especially on the open string bits! You have good form and technique going here. I can see you have put in some good practice on this. You do a good job on not tensing up which is great since a bit too much tension can cause serious problems with your technique and ability to play over all.

The looser you can keep your hands, while maintaining synch, the longer you can play without burning out your arms/hands. One thing to watch is making sure you are keeping a solid mute with your picking hand. I see you are using the left hand to mute the high strings when you are playing the low strings. This can bite you sometimes on open licks that traverse through all the higher strings. IF possible, see if you can cover the entire bridge with your pick hand. You are playing "side saddle' which changes the angle of the hand and makes a full mute a bit harder but not impossible.

Solid work and an 8 from me!!!

Todd

Hey there again!

Well you are really hard working smile.gif Difficult lesson but you managed to get really good result.
In general there is nothing much to call an issue besides some ornament licks inbetween final 16th notes runs, where the hand sync is off

I also like the tone. I think it's just right. In other takes of your Kris mentioned about missing some highs. I had similar impression but then I realised that tehre was one more guitar recored with backing track and the layer of mids in the mix was just slightly hard to cut through, that's why i left that feeling but soon after intro I had thefeelign that everything is just fine.

I will again mention your right hand because it look very tensed. I can't feel form your perspective but in most cases it's rather uncomfortable an tensed playing taking a little bit of the pleasure away. You are loosing much of wrist rotation possibilities. These medium tempo runs could be played easily with the wrist rotation while it is visible you do it with your forearm (wrist is fully tensed). The problem is...you've learned to play with your hand angled this way and to be able to use the wrist, you would need to revers your hand resting point to unlock the wrist.

Cool lesson!

As pointed out you are very tight on the open string licks.

However you are not there yet in the sections that require more intricate left hand work.

To clarify, you are not that far away. However the arrangement emphasises the fast 8th notes: listen to the backing you will hear either the synth or the bass are doing them. And if you don't constantly hit em where they should be - the backing track will work against you, and it will clearly not sound tight.

Also - if the climax at the end requires a fast run - you need to make sure you nail it. Otherwise all your other efforts will be dragged down.

You get a 7 from me. I think you have probably got this down, but you need to record a take where you get all the rhythmic details down, as they will make or break your take for this lesson.

Keep up the hard work!
