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.

Same feedback as for the "Chords in B".

This time your guitar sounds slightly out of tune...just a bit but still. Guitar is a nasty instrument when we speak of tuning. Even with most perfect guitars we are always getting a compromise so it's worth to recheck some fretted notes on your tuner because string surrender to your fingers pressure and fretted notes are usually a few cents higher in the pitch, the open strings.

One additional tip is to touch all the string with your help hand to mute the chord, once you want to make a pause. We do not want any of low, open strings from previous chord, to ring over another one - that's what happened with your Em and D chords.

Hi mate, I'm here just for grading since my comments on the other lessons are applicable to all these chords lessons.

Same feedback applies here too. The pauses between chord changes will reduce with time.
