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.

I think your technique is really good, nothing too add there!

I didn't want to give a 10 because the tone could more appropiate to the style, more soothing and soft, it has a bit of sharpness to it,

try removing a bit of high frecuencies from it.

9 from me as well mate! Both tone and the same idea with the dynamics - the one I was talking about when grading your take on Open Chords Strumming, should be taken into consideration! Keep up the good work!

Very good timing and decent tone. Good fretting of the chords. You should be more careful with strumming, so you get more dynamics as Cosmin said, and try to avoid such harsh tones on the treble strings (strum more faster, the sound should be more as one string, instead of 6 if you know what I mean).

Very great job! I have the same advice as the others. Pay attention to the tone (you want a smoother sound) and make sure your strums are tight (so they have 1 complete sound instead of 6 individual string sounds, like Ivan said).

Other than that, if I close my eyes, it sounds like I'm playing it! biggrin.gif

hey man! this is a good take! Your fretting hand looks comfortable with the chord positions. You timing is good and you do the chord changes fluently. Concentrate on the things that the other instructors said and you will take your playing to the next level! wink.gif
