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.

That's very good, I like your timing, and your light overdriven tone is quite nice too. You are watching for making that strumming tight, but try to relax the wrist and move it as well, while you move the elbow. Elbow isn't crucial, it's the wrist, when it comes to strumming. Keep rocking, this is major improvement. Very good tone, for the tone I give 9, and for stiff wrist I give 6, so it's 8 for this one.

it's not too bad! biggrin.gif

In fact, it's really good! good left hand chord changes!

The right could be a bit less stiff. Try loosen the rist a bit more,

Good job!

Really good take !! I can just echo what my friends say and encourage to relax the strumming hand wrist more. I know we tense up when we concentrate but as you develop confidence in what you're doing you will relax more smile.gif
