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.

Original lesson: Bend 'Em All - Bending Technique Lesson by Lale Nikic

Hi Guys, Time for some technique work. My vibrato on my bent notes has greatly improved through this lesson. But there's still more work to do!

Hi Timmy!

This lesson is a hidden treasure! I didn't remember it and I have to say that it's a killer workout for bending, vibrato and aggressive picking. I can say that you are on the right track with this lesson. You have a good sense of timing on this one, your bending technique is polishing and most of the bends reach the correct pitch.

Your vibrato is on the way, but it needs more work. I notice that your vibrato is there but most of the times is a bit shier and weaker than it's on the original lesson. Another thing to have in mind during the next days of practice is the attitude and energy of your playing which could slowly start to increase to reach the intensity that Lale gives to his playing.

So please keep on practicing this one and try to make both vibrato and picking in general more aggressive.

Gab.-

Hey Tim,

We have discussed this one long and hard, so aside that little hesitation at 0:12, I don't have anything else to add. Indeed, the vibrato and bends can have more intention behind them, but as Gabi said, playing more and more articulation based pieces will only polish and refine your technique.

Keep up the good work!

Yo duder... I'm giving you a 9 here because I think your bending pitch control was great.. even better than Lale's, if I can say that ?

For example, check out your unison bends at 0:22 compared to the original.. yours sound better. smile.gif

The only thing that wasn't as good as the original was the picking on the bend at 1:19. There's nothing wrong with what you did but if you do upstrokes like the original then you get that really nice, clipped sound that's almost the same as chicken picking. That staccato sound.

Other than that, great job !
