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 Renan! After watching your take I want to go to the beach...
You learnt the lesson correctly and now you have to continue playing it to feel more comfortable with your acoustic guitar, and to play it tighter. It has little timing issues in the whole take, you are most of the time before the beat so concentrate on playing it a bit delayed and see what happens.
Also, it would be cool if you turn on a light there! laugh.gif
Keep on rocking!

Hello mate smile.gif

Gabe is right - playing more relaxed and with more balance/groove, is the next step you need to take to breathe life into this lesson. It sounds really 'sunny' as Gabe said smile.gif

Try to play it while tapping your foot to the ground at a slower tempo in order to get the right feel for the balance, deal?

There are no visible issue different than the one pointed by Gabriel. Indeed You have timming problems...You're a bit too early before each beat smile.gif I like how You right hand works with acoustic. This is very good path smile.gif Well done smile.gif
