Cool biggrin.gif It's always a blast to hear my lessons tried out! smile.gif

I think you did ok for the most part. The timing goes a bit off at times and you would really benefit from adding more vibrato since long held notes can quickly sound dry and dull without it. But the bends were good and usually in tune.

All in all, I think you did a good job smile.gif

I must compliment your tone , you really recorded this well..You played it very good too, I would also suggest adding vibrato to those long sounding notes to make them more "musical' smile.gif Keep up the good work! smile.gif

This is pretty cool - nicely done! This lesson was the first one I completed but I am still working on it trying to improve some of the bends and adding more vibrato. You will likely notice that a number of Trond's lessons are incredibly useful for improving your bending but I think you will also find that many of the lessons are paced just right for us beginner-intermediate players to find time to develop our own particular vibrato.

You may want to try Trond's Slow solo exercise for this type of thing (another one is his Am solo or the beginning of his Canon in D - speedy rendition). At first, I didn't really like that lesson too much as I just couldn't seem to time the bends or get the sound I liked out of it that it didn't do it for me musically. However, last weekend (after taking a hiatus of a month to heal up a bout of tendinitis), I worked on it and suddenly, like magic, I could feel the music rather than simply play it - I now consider it one of the most important advances in my playing.

Sounds great man, bends are nice and precise, I like it. Tone is little thin, but that has to do with the preset, other than that it's pretty cool mate. Keep rockin smile.gif

hi pedja, thank you very much, for you comment, it took me 4 tries to record it the way you hear it now, i screwed up the timing the first 3 tries, and even now i,m not perfect on the timing, but it was alot of fun learning something new, cause it,s been a long time for me to learn a new piece of music, and i really love the sound trond uses, i must get around to asking him what kind of effects he uses....thanks again

You welcome!
Taking in consideration you haven't learned new piece of music recently , 4 takes overall is not bad at all.
Keep recording and playing I look forward hearing more things from you.

I like your attitude really - stay with the current one until you perfect it and then move to the next one.

Ask any questions , don't hesitate to ask !
