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 To, your rhythm playing is getting loads better now. It's a massive difference from when we first saw you in the REC Zone which just goes to show the effectiveness of practise!

Your timing is solid and your strumming is accurate and becoming more relaxed.

The only thing which lets it down is the middle section. You're not quite a confident with the fingerings of the chords here and I would definitely check what you're doing against the tab, especially at:



Apart from that, very good job - well done!

Just wanted to say that you can be proud of yourself. You do great job over this lesson, trying to be as precise as possible. Chord changes became smoother even if you've been caught on being a little uncofident wink.gif There is not much to tweak here aside from getting to the level where you no lonegr have to think about where to put the fingers. It will surely come someday smile.gif
