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.

Very nice!

Here you clearly get to reap the benefits of your relaxed posture and practicing.

We can hear less sustain in the high frets because you need a little more time to prepare for the chord changes up there.

All in all very good - you get an 8 from me.

There is nothing easy about this type of playing IMHO. It takes serious effort and very good timing to pull this stuff off. There is no high gain to hide behind, it's just you and the guitar. If you are doing it badly it sticks out like a sore thumb. With all these complex chord shapes, it's tempting to let the arms/hands get TENSE. I see you are in control and playing with comfort, ease and style. You've got this sorted and it's impressive.

Hi Nico!

Good job here! These triads are very useful.

The main objetive of this lesson is to learn those shapes to be able to use them for improvising and arranging your own music. Technically this sounds very well, nothing to fix. Try to get used to this shapes, play in different keys and apply them over backing tracks.

Hey there!

This is pretty straight-forward lesson so there are not many elements to rate but still some improvements can be done.

Your guitar intonation seems to have some headroom for adjustments. It's worth spending some extra hours on finding best compromise. Usually we have a 3 cent acceptable tolarance. This means you should be able to set your guitar so some notes will show -3 cent, some will show zero and some will show 3 cents above the perfect pitch. This way overall impression is that the guitar sounds in tune. Sometimes you can have 5 frets set to 0 cent but then another 5 are like 9 cents too high. no matter on these few correct ones, the 9 cents will stand out, creating a feeling of detuned guitar. Setting intonation is not a rocket sience and can be redone on a regular basis (old string loose intonation!). It's really worh to collect this skill as well as any other.

Second thing is cutting the triads too early. Every note has two most important parameters - moment it starts and moment it should end. You did not respect the time assigned for each triad. You can't release notes earlier just because you need more time for position shifting. That's the whole point in this lesson - at least from the technical point of view.
