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.

Original lesson: Judas Priest 2018 Style by Gabriel Leopardi

So continuing on my way to metal rhythm, I chose this awesome thrash track, which has some serious downpicking, which got me some time to getting used to it! Also, I had not played lead guitar for a long time, so this solo served well as an introduction to lead playing too!

Cool!

You def have some sweet spots in this take.

However my overall impression is that this one is a tad too fast for you - and you are struggling to keep up the tempo. This is generally not a good thing to do, as it tends to give you a tense technique with bad habits hard to get rid off.

The good news is that you are not that far away from nailing it. So I would guess this is just a one time 'bite' you took, that was a bit too large for you.

But please promise us to stay below your comfort speed when practicing, otherwise there is a major risk your progress will stagnate and you won't really understand why. This is often a case for people who reach a 'plateau' in their playing.

I will give you a 5 for this take, but I think that with one more week of slow practicing you will easily nail this one. Go for it mate!! 👊

I like your enthusiasm on this performance. You are feeling the burn and it shows which always makes a better listening experience. The bad news is I am hearing the same lag, just a fraction behind the beat, that I heard on the previous REC that I just listened to from you. I know you can play this. I've seen you play faster than this in bootcamp. I think maybe it just needs a bit more isolation practice on each section and repetition.

Hi again George!

This one is much more advanced compared to the previous that I've commented in REC. Here I note that you are still not comfortable with this fast down picking technique. I see that your hand gets tired and that you need more training in order to play the whole thing at tempo tight and clean.

I recommend you to work at slower tempos, or maybe choose some other down picking lessons to train it. I remember using Master of Puppets album to train my down picking when I was a teenager.. oh nice years! smile.gif

Keep on the hard work!

I have to agree with Kris on this one. I believe it is slightly too fast for you at this point.

This lesson has exposed something I think I would classify as an issue but first let me explain how things are in general. There are several ways of right hand rest and angle adjustment. All of them have some cons and pros. You actual hand angle for this lesson is not ok. It would be great for high strings soloing (palm resting on low strings and muting unwanted noises).

I would highly advice to switch and rotate your right hand so the side of the palm would rather rest on high strings. Your palm contact with strings should be slightly loosen so you can still use your wrist rotation for that fast downnpicking licks. You are having problems because you block the most effiecent source of move of your right hand. Also try to make sort of accents os you hand would have harder and softer strokes for exchange. This will help it to have some relax during fast downpicking, while still creating a sound experience of heavy picking.
