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 Beat! Good take! There are only two things that I would like to comment about this lesson. The first one is that sometimes you loose a bit the rhythm and have very little timing issues. This happens mostly when you have fast chord changes, for example at 00:19 & 00:34. The other thing that I wanted to comment is that you could be playing more relaxed, try to avoid the tension in both hands and arms. It's not a bad take, but with some these timing adjustments it could be a perfect take.

Keep on working!

Nice, clean and with timing matched to the tolerance level. No special flaws. Overall nice take And I hope You'll pass it. I have no claims on You right hand...I understand You made it to get more clean and contrasted performance between strokes and the breaks. I think I also would sacrifice some of "looking relaxed" hand movements to get get it as clean as possible smile.gif

Nothing else to add aside from what the guys have pointed out - then again, with time, you will have that 'dead on' approach while managing to stay relaxed smile.gif Keep practicing man, it's just a matter of time! Well spent practicing time, of course!
