Hey everyone. I just wanted to share something.

Before I was a GMC'er, I didn't know importance of vibrato. And I was thinking that my vibrato is good enough. Then I became a GMC member and everyone said the same thing: VIBRATO AND BENDING SEPARATES GOOD AND BAD GUITAR PLAYER. And one day I saw Ben's vibrato lessons and I liked Classical Vibrato so much. I said 'OK. That's it. I have to try this' Then I tried to do it and I couldn't at first place. I realised that my fingers don't have enough strength to do it. I practiced Ben's legato series to get that strength for one week and after this I tried Classical vibrato again. And only after 2 days practice I was able to do it. I was so excited. I recorded a video and posted to forum. Ben's comments were so positive.
And now I'm trying to apply this technique to my playing. If I continue to practice it for 2 or 3 weeks, Classical Vibrato will be a part of my playing. So Thanks Ben, Thanks GMC



Sorry for my bad English by the way tongue.gif

Excellent thread - thanks Velci! We can't stress this enough: vibrato is the best and fastest way to sounding like a pro. Period

That is awesome man, glad you found your way, and Ben's lessons on this are really well made, explained and helpful! smile.gif

Importance of vibrato is indeed something that is mentioned most often on the forums, I must confirm.

Congratz to Big Ben Higgins for his awesome lessons, to Volkan for his hard work and to GMC for being such a cool place - just as Gabe said, if I had GMC when I was 16 years old, I would've probably played like a hurricane by now tongue.gif
