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 again mate,

Here is the same than with C chords. Everything sounds good but I recommend to let the chords sound more to minimize silences between chord changes.

I would also like to add that you could put some attention to timing and how the strum is doing in the original lesson. You'll notice that the strum is going more connected with the backing both regarding speed (how fast the sweep is done) and timing. Your strums are irregular. This is not the main purpose of the lesson but be sure that it's really helpful to polish your playing!

Keep going!

Hey again smile.gif

Seems like Gab, same as me thinks that extending chords ringing length will be a great tweak to help you improve, what's most important -fast an clean chord changes ability.

In this take I would also give a few more minutes to recheck the tune smile.gif

Great work. As the guys have said, the thing about changing chords is that you'll eventually reduce the time it takes to switch from one position to another which means that you can hang onto a chord for longer before changing. Well done smile.gif
