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!

Come on man, 33 is not old! biggrin.gif

I would say you are good to go to play in a band in this style,

The chord changes are good.

but there's that little extra mojo missing, which makes you sound really pro.

Maybe try loosen your right hand's rist a bit more.

Very well played, sounds very nice, the tone is fine. Daniel is right, try to relax the strumming hand wrist a bit, and make those chord changes a bit more faster. It will be great! smile.gif

I agree with Daniel! You are playing correctly but you should deliver some dynamics to the piece, by paying a little more attentio nto your right hand, to get it perfect! Good work man!

Good job man! You have to add more dynamics and feeling to your right hand strumming to get a more expressive take. Keep on working! wink.gif
