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.

I think this take is better that the one of the previous lesson. You should work more on the second part, starting from 0:40. Bends on this section are out of tune.

Good to see you're working on these vibrato lessons. Key here is to take it slowly. That way you'll have more space to concentrate on the vibrato itself (and bending etc).

Nice take.

After you've corrected the bendings, try to experiment with the vibrato and try to change it the way it suits you. Widen it, shorten it etc, just experiment till you have the vibrato you like the most, that will be your own.

Better wink.gif Much improvement. One thing I see you doing is letting your thumb ride up over the top of the neck. While this is perfectly valid if it suits your style, relying on the thumb to provide leverage for you bend can mask weakness in the fingers themselves. As a practice idea, try this same thing but keep your thumb planted in the middle of the neck and rely on finger strength for the bends. It will give you a really good idea of where you fingers are in terms of strength and control.
