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.

My very first rec laugh.gif
Lost count on how many takes it took before I got this take which I think is atleast decent, but with a few mistakes (started playing for about 3 months ago). I am usually a metalhead, but I decided to try some classical music for once. Anyway, here you have it!

Great take!. You must work a lil bit on your cleannes and the posture of your fingers. Sometimes, it seems like you do a lot of effort to reach the frets. But in general terms, is a very nice take.

Rhythm Placement: 4.5 (some displacemnt when playing Pedal in D stuff and you are missing a lot of damping). The bass lengt is longer on some parts but if you are aware of this and just play it in a way that allows you to reach the notes is ok.

Cleaness: 3.5 you seem to be struggling with some left hand shifts. May be the guitar neck is too low and makes your thumb placement unconvenient.

Feel: 4 Feels very nice, try to add the bass lengt and some of the missing rest and damping.

Posture: 3.5 I think some improvements are possible for the posture, but I can barely see your right hand, it seems that the wrist is almos flat against the string and that is not good idea, if possible send me another vid with both hands as you ussually play and I will answer with another vid., we should do this several times or what ever it takes to help you. That is what instructors are anyway.

Sound: 4 Some times strings seems to be hook under your nails (the string travels along your flesh and make all the turn aroung hook underneath the short nails) and you "pop" the sting what produce a not so nice sound. Again, some more vids between you and me will be needed.
Thanks for playing any of my lessons!!

Everything has been already said. I would only suggest that you have more light on your video. I could hardly see your right hand. Good job overall
