First coat tape pealing

My first attempt to drywall finish following YouTube video tutorial. I thought I did an excellent job, until this morning came in room and the tape did not stick well in some of the edges. Do I have to remove it all or can I cut it where it peals? Also what did I do wrong to cause this? Pressing too hard when I went across?

It sounds like there wasn't enough mud under the tape. Some like to wet the tape first to promote better adhesion although I have never seen the need to do so. You should be able to cut the loose places and slide some mud under/over it to lock it down.
