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: Beginner's Corner 3: Open Chords by Bear Rose

Hi team, here my second praticing lesson. I choose this one cause my wife love it ;) . I try to get more quality recording on this and it's not so easy with latency. I hope to have worked well and you 'll love to listen. See you, thanks, Oliver

Both of your hands look quite good - relaxed, well shaped fingers (left hand) motion is smooth but you tend to go out of timming. I like how you took care of proper intonation and chord changes in last possible moment. Just a tip here - not much of players use bridge position for playing this kind of cleans. It's a bit "country" sounding. With proper eq setting, neck position would be more recommended smile.gif

Hi Farine, good playing!

Besides Darius comments about tone, I would like to add that there are some very little timing issues, for example at 00:11, 00:18, 00:22 where you are not going tight with the rhythm in some cases, while in others you are not playing the rhythm exactly as it is. This is easy to note if you pay attention to the acoustic guitar in the backing. Most of the time you go tight with it but the moments that I marked and a few more show this problem.

Other than that, your chord changes is smooth and you right hand moves fluently. Keep on the good job!

Hi, this is some good sounding stuff. As the guys say, there's just a couple of things to work on:

- Timing: It's not that bad but in some cases you're going in front of the beat a little bit, otherwise known as rushing. As I said, it's not massively bad but to anybody listening closely they'll notice it. So just try to hang back a little bit and sit right on the drums.

- Strumming patterns: I don't rate this as important as timing because strumming is a personal ting but REC rules are that we follow the lesson closely so I have to bring this up as well. See if you can nail the same strumming patterns as the original. Get these two things down and you'll be throwing us a 10 performance smile.gif
