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!

This lead has many sustained notes which inevitably puts focus on the quality of your vibrato. Your vibrato is already promising, but here are some pointers:

* We can see the whole guitar is moving. This is good because it clearly shows you are attempting using your whole arm while generating the vibrato movement - and this is the only way to get a nice wide vibrato. It also shows that you are wasting some energy shaking the guitar instead of the string!

* Listen to Muris' vibrato and see if you can spot that there is actually a brief moment where he lets the note ring - before vibrato starts. It allows the listener to clearly hear the pitch of the note. This is crucial to get a pro sounding vibrato - try to emulate it!

Keep up the greta work - you get an 8 from me!

Hi Nico,

This lesson is GREAT to train your vibrato. I notice that it is not consistent yet and that guitar movement tip (that Kris gave) is a very important observation.

I would also practice this one with a more gain (closer to Muris tone) so you have more sustain and get use to control a more distorted sound. The current tone tend to release very quickly. The easier way to have more sustain would be to add a compressor or overdrive before your amp.

That's all for this one, cheers!

Coming along nicely! As was mentioned, when you land on a note that is about to get vibrato, a quick pause as you increase vibrato and then decrease it before moving on is a good way to add a dynamic vibe to your playing. I like how your vibrato is deep and wide and not shallow. Shallow vibrato is a dead giveaway of not enough practice! Your timing is good here and your hand synch is solid as well! Solid take!!!

Hey there!

This is happening on a daily basis so I'm not sure if you already got that tip form me but in this takes it is very visible and easy to confirm why. Look at your left hand when vibrating. Notice that it is easier to keep the pitch when you pull the string instead of pushing. Most of the notes you pull, get back to their pitch zero point and it sounds in tune. When you look and some notes (0:11 for example) you can hear it is not as accurate as expected. Inconsistency and random hand behaviors are mot important cause of any technical issues (to clarify...we do not speak of randomness in music...we speak only of hand mechanics). Try to pull vibrated string as long, as it's not E1 (this case we have no choice, and notes on E1 often sounds little high with their pith)
