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 7.5 or higher.

Yeah I agree with Ben really good!

Now that you've shown that you have the abillity I think you should focus on your own vibrato style now, what I mean by that is do vibrato the way it feels natural to you:

Very good take and i must also agree with Daniel! What would you say if you would start exploring away regarding your own voice? Let's say starting from the way a sax player would bend and vibrate those notes smile.gif can you imagine that and try to emulate? In my opinion, it could be a very interesting start! biggrin.gif

Very well done, you are really focusing and trying to control those bends. Not all are precisely in pitch, but it's clear that you are on the right track with them. In the future when practicing bends, play the bended note first (higher on the neck), and then bend the note in order to raise it to that reference pitch. It will be more precise.
