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 - https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/creating_an_atmosphere/

Fender Fat Strat Texas Special (Joan)
Line 6 Guitar Port
Sony Vegas Video - Video pre-mix processing
Garageband
Guitar Rig 3 - Marcus Siepen's Lead Preset
Logitech Pro 9000
iMovie - Video post-mix processing
I threw the oven mitts in the fire!

Reason for choosing lesson: I wanted to work on vibrato and bending in pitch without stumbling on a really fast run that caused me anxiety and sucked the mood out of my playing. This lesson has great feel and elements that allow the addition of some emotion without me getting in my own way. Previous discussions with instructors has identified vibrato as an area to work on.

Vibrato is not really consistent. You should work on that. Bends and slides are not precise either. You need to play them faster and with more confidence. The sound has a lot of noise but it has a nice definition. Use some noise gate for that and less gain.

I would agree with Emir. Your biggest problem is your left hand position. Try to place your thumb a bit lower on the neck, your hand is laying too flat on the neck...

I agree with previous comments, just work more around bending and vibrato and your overall playing will be better.
