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.

Original lesson: Spanish Romance by Kosei Kubota

I played both Spanish Romance and Spanish Romance 2 since it's the same song. I played it a little faster to kind of liven it up a bit.

Hey man! It's a beautiful and one of most popular compositions for classic guitar. You did a really good job on this one. The melody is on top - You didn't make a very common mistake of overlaying background notes over the main melody. That's a huge plus of Your take.
Somewhere around 0:23 (end of first song part) You need to play it a few more times until it get's nailed - it's not correct yet (right hand fingers got twisted smile.gif 0:37 - similar situation. I don't see any obvious mistake in hands positions and movements so it's just a matter of practice smile.gif Well done on this one smile.gif

Hi mate, this is a very nice take of this beautiful composition! As Darius said, there are not important problems on this take. Keep on practicing the piece every day to make it sound even more precise and avoid those wrong notes that Darius marked.

Hey mate smile.gif

I think that the guys have said it all and the only thing I would add is the fact that, the more you practice this the better it will flow. It is technically ok, but it sounds a bit rigid at this point. Flow will come with more playing smile.gif

Keep up the good work!
