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 Tom, this was some good stuff. Your barre chord technique looks very strong.

There were a couple of moments where the notes were slightly obscured, most obviously at 0:58.. so try to practise these shapes as much as you can and pay attention to how the finger presses onto the strings.. are the notes coming through clearly? Are some notes sounding but others not? If you focus on these little things it will all come together gradually. Well done !

Hey there! Overall effect is quite good but there are a few tiny things to fix. I see nothing truly wrong in the way You play it aside from a few spots like 0:47(major instead of minor at the very beginning of that chord change) and 0:58. Hands lok good - position and angles. I suppose it's only a matter of time to get used to those chord changes. There is no other particular reason for them in your take - just a bit more "get used to" factor smile.gif

Hi Tom! We've been working on this one at Gab's Army and it's really cool to see how your playing is evolving. The chord changes are smooth and your right hand keeps timing during the whole take.

Besides those details to adjust that the other instructors commented there is nothing else to mark, just keep on the great job!

See you at the Army smile.gif
