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.

Hey Tom!

That's a beautiful guitar you have there smile.gif In general it's a pleasant performance - well intonated, with descent timing (a little better in the first half, slightly off in the second half). Tone is pleasant as well. Of course humbuckers have different frequency response, than single coils, so there is a little of sparkling missing, but that's natural.

Second half not only has some little timming issues but also a visible hesitation in your playing. I guess you missed just a few days of playing this lesson to make your left fingers more "self-confident" - you tend to give not enough pressure or hold the chords for too short
There's one obvious mistake in the second half as well, but it's so clear that you had to feel something went wrong while playing smile.gif 0:43 - wrong chord.

At the descending runs - 0:54 don't be so "shy" smile.gif You can hit a little stronger. at this point some notes are getting lost in the mix, due to their low picking strength.

In the second half you need to listen carefully how Guido accents the notes. In your take the group of 4 strums per chord sounds flat. Guido does play 1st and 4th strum harder, and makes 2nd and 3rd a little hidden in the background.

There are some ghost notes missing in the overall take - those percussive strums through muted strings, that Guido does in his original take

Anyway keep up the good work, and once you'll fix those details, I'm sure, you'll get higher grades smile.gif

I am missing the intro notes: these kind of small embellishments are super important and can make a static strumming work come to life.

I also like to comment on groove/feeling: and I suggest you try to get a feel for how Guido really locks in with the rhythm. You can see both his foot and head feeling/moving to the up- and downbeats. It might be worth testing if supporting the rhythm with the rest of your body can help you find the pocket.

You get a 5 from me - but I think with just a little more work you can turn this into an enjoyable piece of music. Keep going!
