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.

Hey buddy!

Looks like you got those shapes in your mind, but still, after second 0:14 your timing is slightly off - so, I'd ask you to practice this one a little bit more while focusing on getting the shapes as clean as possible, especially those towards the end of the take and changing them as dead on time as you can.

Keep rocking!

I would like to add something aside from what Cosmin wrote.

Take a close look at the original lesson. Playing with right hands fingers is a technique itself, same as any other. Of of the basic things in this kind of playing is to use the thumb to play on the low strings. It gives better control and warmer tone. You seem to use only fingers and Your hand angle is more like to using pick. Try to play with rounded wrist. Observe some of classical players cause whole this fingerpicking style isbased on claccical guitar playing basics. You need to "unglue" Your right hand from the bridge and play more "from the air" using only the edge of the guitar body as a resting point. Cheers!

As Cosmin said, you did a good job learning the chords but there are timing issues in the second half. Try to follow the rhythm with your head or foot to help you to make the chord changes tighter with the tempo.
