> Rules

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 mate,

Great to find REC takes from your! This take sounds very good. You can play the different chords tight with the backing and all the strings are sounding clear.

I recommend you to try to make the fingers changes faster and let the previous chord sound the more possible before your change the position to the following chord. This can sound like irrelevant at this point but it will be helpful when playing different right hand rhythms which is how songs are played.

Other than that this is very good. Keep going!

I just here to grade - I guess everything that should have been noticed, has been noticed in other rec takes of yours. Essentially you have nothing to fix in your left hand shape and position. Just give some more time on tuning your guitar, focus on timing and let the chords sound longer smile.gif

Good work on this one too. Your strumming is quite relaxed here - you're doing everything correctly. It's just a case of becoming more and more comfortable over time and the chord changes will get easier.
