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.

Hi !

Bends are giving me a hard time for some time now and I failed a couple of lessons because of them so I decided to pick a really easy one (at least that is what the difficulty level says smile.gif )

This is the original: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Bend-A...lide-Exercises/

The truth is that I've been obsessed with the bends and vibrato and I haven't payed good attention to the slides in this lesson but it was a very convenient lesson to do for these two techniques.

So even if the slides are not so good (as I hear them) it would be very helpful for me if you could concentrate your feedback on the bending and vibrato parts biggrin.gif

My take:


Ibanez S 470 DXQM
EMU 0404 USB
Logitech quickcam C200 with another sound card for audio input.
I connected the headphones output of the EMU to the line in of the other sound card.

Hey Rhoads, I think your vibrato and bending are definitely getting better. You've got the makings of a strong vibrato, so if you continue on that track then all is good !

I thought the slides were fine, myself smile.gif

One point to look out for in future is muting unwanted string noise but it's 9 from me.

As Ben said I can also see a great improvement in your bending and even more in your vibrato! Most of the bends are reaching the correct pitch now and with some more practice I think that they will sound more natural. Your vibrato is very good now. Well done man! Keep on the great job. smile.gif

I think the guys said everything smile.gif vibrato and bending are like wine - the more time you spend exploring them, the better and more refined they become wink.gif Keep up the good work man!
