hi Ivan

this is my take on your wonderfull blues lesson. Beginner version. I recorded it without the backing so the licks are more clearly. Please let me know that you think and don't be afraid to criticise

It is great man. You really nailed the rhythm part, and being able to play without backing shows that you have a talent for the rhythm.
I would say your biggest concern should be bends. You must be able to bend the note exactly to pitch and keep it there. ANd I mean exactly. Bending is practiced like anything else, slow and with a metronome up to desired speed. Other than that it is great!

Especially in the first video it looks like your vibrato consists of finger bending up and down as well as wrist movement. When I try to do it I find myself using just my wrist.. or just my fingers.. is there something I can do to improve on this? Thanks unsure.gif

I would say use just the wrist for starters. The wrist movement is there as a foundation - without it it is very difficult to have a bend/vibrato control. When you master it, you can fine tune the wrist movements to acomodate your style of playing mate.
If you wanna improve bend/vibrato, just do it slowly with a metronome. Here's a useful tip on how to practice them, it's Toroso's video response I did a while ago.
