As you are all now aware, we have implemented a new keywords feature at GMC:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=37664

But, we need your help ... we have added a starter set of words but many are missing all we want you to do is every time you spot a missing keyword that you would like added, just post a response to this thread!

Every now and again I will go through it and update the keywords file. Easy huh?

Thanks in advance for your assistance!

I didn't find these keywords here.

From wikipedia:
Vibrato is a musical effect consisting of a regular pulsating change of pitch. It is used to add expression to vocal and instrumental music. Vibrato is typically characterised in terms of two factors: the amount of pitch variation ("extent of vibrato") and speed with which the pitch is varied ("rate of vibrato").

Lick is a short phrase, or series of notes, often improvised by a musician.

Riff is a repeated chord progression, pattern, refrain or melodic figure, often played by the rhythm section instruments or solo instrument, that forms the basis or accompaniment of a musical composition.

Sweep picking is a technique used on the guitar in which a 'sweeping' motion of the pick is combined with a matching fret hand technique in order to produce a specific series of notes which are fast and fluid in sound. Despite being commonly known as sweep picking, both hands essentially perform an integral motion in unison to achieve the desired effect.

PICKUP
A pickup device acts as a transducer that captures mechanical vibrations, usually from suitably-equipped stringed instruments such as the electric guitar, electric bass guitar, Chapman Stick or electric violin, and converts them to an electrical signal which can then be amplified, recorded and broadcast.

hahah LO it was already added!!! XD

TAB
Tab (short for tablature), is a notation for stringed instruments, with six lines, representing guitar strings and numbers representing fret positions
