> 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, congrats on a new REC take!

From what I can hear it seems that you are playing the lesson well. However there are two technical issues that I would like to mark in order to make your future takes more suitable for this program.

The first one is about the mix. Please try to make your guitar sound louder since there are some parts in which I can't even hear your playing. Always put your guitar audible in the mix. Find the right balance.

The other detail is that it's important to show both hands clearly on screen. That's essential to let us check your movement and see if we can add any feedback about it.

I suspect that you are playing a bit soft with your left hand, but I'm not sure it this is because of the mix. Please fix it on the next one.

Keep on the hard work.

I agree with Gab.

From what we can tell here this is probably a decent take - but we cannot really give you a high grade without fully hearing you.

I too have to agree with Gabe and Kris here. It's a far more simple thing to make a another vid with a better angle and have you louder in the mix than it was to put in all the practice on this rec to be sure. It seems worth going through production again.

You have obviously worked hard on this piece and I think you are nailing it but I can't hear/see all of it. If you give it one more vid I"m thinking you'll kill it!

Unfortunately it's hard to grade this take at all. As guys mentioned - guitar has to be clearly heard in the mix and both hands should be visible. This particular audio sounds pleasant but it's not a good reference for us to judge your playing sad.gif
