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,

I've checked this one many times before commenting to find relevant issues and I've just think that your timing needs some adjustment on this one. The overall sounds good, but there is room to play the parts tighter. You tend to play a bit after the beat, and the problem becomes more important in the last section (starting at 00:52).

Besides this, I would put some attention to your right hand and see the possibility of adding some forearm movement starting from your elbow when strumming. I think that it will give you more dynamics control (in this case more power) and more groove. Check out some of my rhythm lessons that show the whole arm (in this one it's not completely on screen) and also check some other instructors to get inspiration.

Keep on the hard work.

Hey there!

Average quality of your performance is good...not perfect, but without anything to be ashamed of. I would agree with Gabriel about your right hand. For this kind of playing you can get some inspiration from regular strumming motion (just like playing chords on acoustic guitar). You right hand looks sort of frozen above the wrist. It's not a good thing. Forearm is one of tools to boost the impact of accents for example. That has an affect on timing as well. Timing is not so bad at all - there are minor issues here, nothing serious.
Try to recheck your tune on the frets being used in this lesson. There are minor intonation issues.

Hi Guillaume, this is really good take of this lesson.

I think the tone, timing and execution of this track are excellent and cannot find fault in it at all.

The guys have mentioned your hand position and I both agree and disagree about this. Let me explain;

- I think your hand position is very good. It's very relaxed and allows you to do what you need to do. As an overall hand position I would say do not change it - it' great.

- For this type of energetic rhythm playing, I can understand what they mean about using a bit more motion overall to give a more aggressive sound to the strumming. So for energetic rhythm parts, I'd say it's ok to add a bit more motion but don't change your hand position for other stuff that is more intricate and requires accuracy smile.gif
