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 don't know if there is any magic to getting my vibrato wider other than maybe making it wider tongue.gif. But I've got to work on that. I think One thing that messes me up is trying to figure out how many vibrato bends I have time for before moving into the next phrase. I guess it depends on the situation, but I seem to get stuck on that. Notice here that for the first note with vibrato, I just do a single bend/release and then play the next phrase. If I put more than that in, I seem to run out of time. Is there a way to know what works best timing wise? I guess as with any other technique, practice is the key. Mabye 8th note triplets for the vibrato is always the right "tempo" for them, or does it have to be in sync with the music? Anyway, this was a fun lesson. The slides are tricky at first but soon become second nature. You almost listen for where the note should go instead of how many frets to slide to.

Hey mate!

your take was very good! Very good indeed! About the vibrato - try to groove the notes when you vibrate them - by that, I mean don't rush in with the actual vibrato movement, just try and feel the tempo and swing of the song itself, then try to vibrate in its rhythm. Don't vibrate as soon as you bend - let the note breathe first, then use the vibrato to sustain it. it takes practice and a little "self abandonment" once you get there rhythmically - vibrato and bending are among the most personal things for a guitarist, so "explore yourself" as thoroughly as you can. smile.gif hope I am making sense and helping you in the same time biggrin.gif

best of luck

Very good take!
Your sound was very similar to the original lesson. Try to roll of a bit of treble to make it more mellow, less edgy.
Playing was good and you did well with slides (most important part of the lesson). You could maybe play the whole piece more connected though (legato sounding).

Cosmin gave you tips about vibrato - it just takes some (metronome) practice to get the feel of it and then it's about feeling the groove of the song.

Overall - strong take! smile.gif

I realy liked your take ! smile.gif In my opinion first focus only on the bends and if you are ready with the lesson, then try to play it with vibratos.
In the beginning at the C mixolydian there is a bit timing poblem, but overall this is a great record. smile.gif

Very very well played and well picked lesson.

The only thing I can advise you is to spend more time working on your vibrato, it seems the weakest of all techniques you do.

Some good advice here, so I won't repeat it again smile.gif A tiny thing I noticed which would be easy for people to overlook, is when you climb up through the scale to those notes on the high E string at 0:19 you play those last notes with the same dynamics.

If you listen closely to Lazslo, he picks them with a slightly more aggressive edge.. pick a note, then almost mute it before playing the next one. I'm a big fan of this technique and it helps to give more dimension and feel to phrases. It also sounds more deep and emotional, as if you're diggint into the notes and pulling them out. smile.gif I hope that all makes sense smile.gif

P.S. To my fellow instructors, don't forget to vote ! smile.gif
