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.

Hello GMC

I picked this lesson to work on my bendings and vibrato. Hope the pitch is a little better now.

hey Nico! smile.gif you are improving but still have to work on the pitch. This lesson is very good as it makes you concentrate on keeping a steady rhythm when executing vibrato and sustaining long notes. Try and listen to the flow of the melody and its notes, more than focusing on the actual vibrato - this is achieved by a lot of practice.

Vibrato is a shifty and cunning thing to master, but once you got a clear picture about how to 'flow' with the groove, pitch and feel you'll nail everything.

Keep it up!

A good reference for incredibly smooth vibrato and bending is the following song:

Andy is among my favorites! wink.gif

Hi man! First of all! I love that guitar! biggrin.gif hahah As Cosmin said you have to work more on your bending, you are not reaching the correct pitch most of the times. Your Vibrato also should be stronger. Your timing is good and I like your tone!
Andy Timmons playing will be very inspiring for you because his vibrato and bending is awesome.
