Hey Roger, thanks for the kind and encouraging words, truthfully they really do help smile.gif
Now I know I said i would have this up last week, but I got delayed for the week, so here is my take on the jumping around lesson. I think this one is 15 times better than the last one. Over the past month of inactivity on the site, I didn't really have much time at all to pick up the guitar, but for the few minutes I could play here and there I would give a few quick attempts at this lesson, and somehow it paid off lol.
Now that the weekend has passed, my girlfriend is back on her feet and went back to work today, and I feel a lot better after a few stressful weeks, so I am 100% committed to guitar once again smile.gif
Here is my take, hope its a lot better than before

Hey Luey,

Great to hear from you! Sometimes some rest is as important as continuously practicing indeed smile.gif

Your playing sounds much more confident in this take, so great job done there! Bend is much better, your rhythmic placement is good. In the beginning when you play the hammer-on from 12th to 13th fret on the B string, try to do that a bit quicker (fluently) as it is a ghost note, and make sure that the 13th fret sounds exactly on beat 4 of that measure.

Your vibrato still needs some work as it is still quite shaky at times, but don't worry too much for now.

I would suggest that you continue with the 2nd part of this lesson, which gives you some 16th note rhythm (start slowly and gradually speed up) - Pedja will be pleased by that wink.gif .

Besides that, try to work also a bit on the monthly group assignment which is an extension of the previous one. Also feel free to upload some work for the Dorian collab of David you signed-up for.

Ask any questions, as that's why I am here for smile.gif

Cheers
Roger

thanks for the speedy reply smile.gif
Indeed I did notice what you are talking about with the ghost note on the 12th to 13th fret, I can't believe I didn't notice it when I recorded, but its something that I can fix easily now that I am aware of it. smile.gif
What would you suggest I try to do in order to improve my vibrato? I mean, besides practicing it, because I know that is the only way it'll improve, I mean more along the lines of something i should listen to and analyze a bit more. Maybe any tips or advice that helped you back when you first started with your vibrato. But besides that, I will keep watching Muris' lesson and keep practicing it.
I have moved on to the second part of the lesson today as well. the 16th notes are manageable for me at this tempo, I just need another day or so of practice to get it. At this point though, it seems like trying 16th notes at anything faster would be impossible for me laugh.gif But I know speed will come with time and practice. So yes, I'll get back to practice now!

Thanks again

The whole thing with developing a good vibrato is that it's a solid motion originated from the whrist. In other words: it has to be nicely synced with the rhythm of the solo you are playing with an amplitude which should be consistent throughout the vibrato. You can see vibrato as a series of small bends and releases which are all of the same pitch basically.

The thing that finally best worked for me was to really practice very, very slow and wide vibrato movements while I was improvising a bit on a backing track. I kept doing that for a while and I noticed that my vibrato changed from completely shaky/nervous to more consistent and synced vibrato. Following that I worked also on more intense vibrato (higher frequency) etc.. Actually, together with the improvements I made on my vibrato I also started to realize that my left hand was often too tensed while playing, and after I got rid of that in most of my playing ... much more things fell into place basically (and my vibrato became again quite a bit better).

Hopefully this helps a bit smile.gif
