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,

This is my first REC ever.
I have been working on this lesson together with Gab for about 5 weeks.
It is not totally perfect but I am quite happy with this take.

Thanks for your feedback smile.gif

Awesome to see your first REC take mate - and welcome to the club 😁

To me this take feels spot on - you work the groove in a relaxed way with your whole body. Chord changes feel smooth. This is a great foundation.

I did sense some fluctuations in tempo at times. However you definitely nailed the content and essence of this lesson.

Hey there!

Congrats on your very first rec take. It's always worth the challenge and demands some braveness.

Same as with your take over #3, things sound quite solid with minor details to review and tweak.

I wonder how it happened but it looks like for down-strumming you use your middle finger as main "tool" while index is straight and out of use, which is quite weird but you managed to make is sound reasonably fine so hard to tell is it actually a mistake. Be aware that this may come out as problem once you skip to higher levels of playing and things "designed" for guitar will not feel as natural for you as for other players.

With this lesson you had some problems with timing and you even manages to apply time signature change at some point (playing G for too long - probably 2/4 more). Looks like applying additional ornaments in chords (Dsus4 in here) brings you additional trouble.


Here's a little general advice. Try to point you right hand more towards higher strings. Your hand will still" capture" low strings on it's way, but they balance between low and high will be better. Very often notes of E1 disappear in your playing. Reasons may be two. One mentioned before (right hand point of strings hit) and second - fretting hand issues )occassional muting of "neighjbour string", while you fret on other one)

This all sounds very promissing. Please remember that fixing mistakes at the very beginning takes much less time than fixing bad habits, created through years wink.gif Wll done and keep up the good work
