wow cool! i like it
good work!! Thanks!
Thats some serious vibrato Marcus, congratulations for such a refined technique
Great lesson, and a really excellent piece of music to practice to - thanks Marcus!
Dude I always love how your stuff sounds!
Great lesson,This will really help me get those sounds i have been trying on your previous lesson's
Awesome, will get on it ASAP. As always grade A stuff. Love the backing.
Exellent! i love your music, and i aslo really like the visual quality of your vids
Thanks a lot Marcus! This is exactly what I wanted!
That is so much of a bad ass solo i want to cry! seriously... so much emotion...
great work but dont get too emo about it...
nice nice nice
That actually gives me chills every time I listen to it.
I've been waiting a long time for a sweet technique lesson like this. Keep 'em coming
The bend on video 2 on 21st fret is giving me a hrad time.I dont have a problem hearing what i need to do but rather getting that bend to pitch.I use a 21fret strat and it's everything i can do just to get in close to E but it's not quite there and sounds wrong.Any advice, i feel like if i try and push the bend any farther i will bust the string.Your lessons have been great practice for me.I havent played something that cuts my finger's and tears themup in a long time.It's the way you make your bends sound that is takingmy finger's time to get used to.You put so much intensity into them and that makes it sound so much better.Please dont stop putting out leson's,it would be great if you could keep adding them at the pace you have been.I think i speak for everyone else when i say your lessons are some of the best on here right now.
Thanks for your kind comments. I use a 21 fret strat myself, and I know that the bend you refer to is very difficult. So I tried to make it a little easier by not adding any vibrato to it, but still... it is difficult. Though, the fact that you are able to hear the right pitch "in your head", means you've come a long way and I'd say you're half way there!
Anyways, my best guess is that you need to be stronger in your left hand fingers because the way you describe it, it seems like you put in a real effort doing this bend, and it shouldn't be.
Is it possible for you to make me a video? That way It would be easier to see/hear exactly what's wrong.
Btw, I have never broken a string while doing this type of bend.
Beautiful, Great Composition, And A Fantastic Lesson
Great stuff Marcus - tasteful!
Where's the smoke? There's no smoke!!
my pestering finally got a vibrato lesson
Awsome job Marcus
this was what i was looking for...
hi' Marcus!! tell me what kind the sound Effect you use,, I love you're sound, my email email@example.com
how the hell is your wide vibrato so fast on those big bends? Mine sounds like crap when I try to do it like that.
How do i get a good vibrato on the light E-string? Can't do it very fast if i have to push the string =P
So Marcus...just how many babes do you rake in each night you play this
hehe... well, I would like to say: "at least one", but my girlfriend hates this stuff, so... the answer would be: none :/
At any rate..I love your style...its clean and looks like fun
I can't really explain it, but it's heavenly
Your guitar sounds UNREAL !!!!! AMAZING TONE
marcus, i was wondering what you use to create those epic sounding backing tracks? thnx
and great sound!!!
Marcus, you are the reason I signed up on this site (Besides the fact trying to teach myself was proving rather futile).
Your music is absolutely beautiful. Another great lesson. Thanks.
Thank you very much, Plaidman! I appreciate it, and I'm glad you joined GMC.
Don't be afraid to ask if there's anything I can help you with!
I know this might be the stupidest question ever..
But how do you download the backing tracks so I can make a recording and post it on the forums?
I'd really like to hear your recording, but I'm afraid you can't download the mp3 file. I know some guys just play along to the backing track and record it all with a webcam.
Wish I owned a camera...
So basically, i should just bend the strings as far as i feel i need to, without worrying they might break? Coz I always feel like they are gonna bust any second when i try to make the bend with a bit more power, and that gives me the creeps...
Amazing solo apart form that!
Very learnfull lesson, thanks a lot for this. I feel like my vibrato and bends sound twice as good now! ( and thats an understatement )
WUNDERBAR --I'll NEVER CAN MAKE THIS

Nice to hear you started playing guitar again

Got to be the best vibrato i've seen in a... well, i'll just say ever...
Thank very much Gwazi
yngwie kan slänga sig i väggen! Sjukt bra Marcus
fantastic advice and much overlooked by many!
nice lesson Marcus!!!!!!
I LOve IT.... simply as that
WOW, this just improved my vibrato significantly in about 15 minutes
Wonderful..Marcus is the man
Thanks all for your kind comments!
i dont get it i try to find a scale and made something that sounds that good and mine turns out crap haha very sick
I cant grab the 21. I can only make it reach Eb. What could I be doing wrong?
I cant reach 24 bend from 21. Its painful to my fingers. Is it because im using a light guage like .10?
Yes, you need to be very strong in your fingers if you use .10 guage. I use .09 and it works fine, so try that next time you change strings.
This is just what I need. My vibrato stinks like a wet dog that just got sprayed by a skunk.
*My strings break*
It sounds epic as well as wonderfull lesson. Thanks.
that solo is amazing it sounds great and realy gives you a good vibrato workout.
but i was missing some things. like in a couple of places you write b(for bend) and its actually a pbr. another thing is that you dont write which tone i should hit with my bend and you dont write any of the slides.
and finally maybe if someone can tell me what key it is and what scales is he using because i want to try and do some improv on this solo.
and last but not least congrats to marcus on the new baby that i heard he had.
great lesson,,love your jam track...ive had loadsa fun jammin over it...thanks
Wow ! Your playing is really passionate ! Amazing vibrato !
thank you for this great lesson.
Does it possible to have a more longer playback or a loop ? Thank you !!!!
This is 100% feeling... Hands down!
You've got one of the best tones and emotion with a guitar I've ever heard, Marcus!
Marcus, awesome guitar tone and technic. You're guitar must be posessed.lol. Everytime I try that bend at the 21st fret, it rips the string out of my bridge, (floyd rose). Do you mind if I cheat a bit and use my other 3 frets, I got 24.
Still think this is awesome and my vibrato is improving. Soon panties will be falling off when I play this. LOL
Vibrato is such a great technique that differentiates guitar from other instruments! and this lesson sounds awesome!
