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.

This is really good, you've improved a lot.

Your strumming is so much more confident and the chords are ringing out much cleaner.

My only criticism is that the tuning isn't quite right which is noticeable when you go for the D chord. But in terms of technique, that's spot on smile.gif

Strumming timing is the most important in this lesson and you did a good job there. You should check the guitar tuning as the D chord sounds out of tune. If the tuning is was good then it might be a technique issue where you are pressing down too hard on the frets when holding the D shape. I'm noticing that you are having a bit of trouble switching to D chord in general. Please check out how Bear in the original lesson goes from G to D for example. He is keeping his ring finger constantly fretted and just moves index and middle finger to form a D shape. You are loosing a bit of time when forming this chord which might also add on to the "out of tune feeling" we get when listening to the recording as first strum doesn't happen on fully formed (Fretted) chord. Overall - this is very good, please keep practicing changes from different chords to D.
