Hi mate! This is a lot better! All the things that I've marked in the previous list are improved, except by the parts at 00:03, 00:25 and 00:29 that still need to sound tighter.

You can also work a bit more on those final bends in order to polish pitch and to make them sound smoother. Also, be sure to use the other fingers to help your third finger when doing vibrato.

Your progress is impressive make, congrats!

Hi Gabriel thanks,

the fast lick at 00:25 I was actually playing something different than the one in this lesson (taken from a tab, so I finish at the 8/8/8 on the E/B/G string), but I can try to play the same as in this lesson, slightly different sound, should not be an issue just need to get use to it

on the Vibrato and bends, i get it too your point, especially the 3 bend in a row i do not get them always perfect.

I have a question on the 00:03 and 00:29 (which is the same lick), any advice on what I'm doing wrong there or what I can do to make it sound tighter? it is pretty close when i listen to it, but I can hear there is something small missing, but not sure what actually.

cheers

Hi Claudio! The parts at 00:03, and 00:29 have two differences:

- The timing is not precise. I think that you can find it easier if you practice adding a 8th note metronome to be sure that you are playing the notes tight. Even the first note is imprecise.

One exercise that can help is to count 8th notes over the original lesson to see how the notes go with the tempo. Check this audio: Attached File  santana_count.mp3 ( 599.1K ) Number of downloads: 9


- The duration of notes is slightly different.

Hi Gabriel,

I have changed a couple of things. The last 3 notes before the vibrato on that fist lick are actually 16th notes which I was ignoring...What do you think?

Excellent! Now you are playing the phrase well. Nice to know that the feedback helped to understand it. Well done my friend!

You can not continue playing this one to add more feeling and to make those last part bends smoother, but you are very close. Congrats!

Great! You just need to polish a bit that lick at 00:25, and when playing vibrato, try to focus the movement from your wrist. Also, when using your 3rd fingers, you can use 2 and maybe 1 pressing the frets too to help the one that is doing vibrato.

Your timing issues are now fixed. This take could also be shared at REC so you get some extra feedback from other instructors.

Great! The cool side of REC is that you receive many points of view so I always incentive students to share takes there frequently.

thanks,
absolutely, feedbacks are always good. Came a long way since the first attmept, thanks again for your help!

I am now starting to get the Vibrato point that also Kris mentioned in his feedback, so i think i can definitively improve that by adding the 2nd finger and 1st and also moving the wrist/arm. Just need to focus on it, which so far i didn't. I have noticed it adds stability/controll, so will defiy add that and post a new attempt to get your thoughts at some point.

alongside practicing this one, I'm starting to think about the next lesson, got a few ideas i'll pass by you later

cheers

Great Claudio! Yes, that's how you can fix your vibrato issues. Use those fingers and practice.

I'll wait for your suggestions. wink.gif

Hi,

there are so my nice lessons in here that is so difficult to choose!!!
ok so was thinking looking at these 4:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Pop-Rock-Solo-Beginner/
a nice one, good mix of techniques

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/BB-King-Blues/
a bluesy one, with quite bit of vibrato, a good one to give my vibrato a boost, + love BBking

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/neocla...loforbeginners/
this one is different, really like I and think it might be a good one to give my vibrato a boost

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...in-rock-lesson/
this one i really like, santana style, do you know the author? wink.gif (some parts are quite quick but i can probably get there with some practice on the guitarpro), i think probably this is the hardest for me now

what do you think would be the best for me to work on?

Best,
Claudio

Hi Claudio! I think that these 4 lessons are excellent choices for you and that you should work on each of them. I can only suggest an order to work them, but you can start with the one that you want.

1. Neoclassical
2. Pop Rock
3. Latin
4. BB Blues
