> IS THAT YOUR MAMA?

Nope didn't think so either. We all know parents don't get this.

I can show you how to be the virtuoso your folks could only dream about, but I first need your help:

* Pm me and I will show you where to start. I am online every day and I will help you out directly!

* Join my mentoring program. I will customize your learning experience in a way you haven't experienced before. We will have regular contact so that you can remain inspired every day and eventually reach a new level.

* Join my next video chat! GMC startpage holds a video chat schedule. We always cover a lot of ground and have fun. Remember that you don't need any previous knowledge, and you can be passive in the chat.

* Jam with me - you will find active collabs here.

* Post a topic on this board, guitar related or not - doesn't matter! You will find that chatting with instructors boosts your motivation to practice.

* You haven't missed my latest video lessons, have you?

* Oh and did you know that to become a killer guitarist you just need to focus on one thing? Everything
else is secondary. Pm me and I will explain.

Hey Andy! I would like to suggest some work on the bending and vibrato in lead, working a bit with this lesson which is easy and doable but focuses on the task at hand wink.gif

what say you? If you don't like it we can try another one smile.gif

Hey Cosmin

I've posted my take in the REC section, although looking at it I don't think I've really got much vibrato. I was more concerned with getting the notes right smile.gif

Alrightie! My friend, you have to slow things down, to start with smile.gif

What do you say if you would send me separate takes with each part, at 50 % of the speed smile.gif focus on timing, tightness and articulation, k?

It seems a bit tedious but I guarantee results wink.gif

Hey mate!

You are on the right track smile.gif but you need to get rid of the bending and vibrato done with the fingers. Try using your wrist for a change and the results will be far better. Also, at about 0.52 there's a not sounding a bit loose.

All in all your left hand should be more confident when playing - the timing was good but the notes sounded a bit week somehow.

Let's try the same take having in mind the things above. Practice them before recording and of course, let me know if you have problems with working from the wrist smile.gif

Hi Cosmin

I do have problems doing vibrato with the wrist. Do you have any tips or help you can give me ?

Hey mate, sure!

The whole deal is to lock your fingers on the note you are vibrating and produce a vertical motion or elipsoidal one!

Here are some very good tips and ideas from our dear Mr. Higgins - take a look and let me know what your thoughts on this would be wink.gif

I'm really struggling here Cosmin sad.gif I can't seem to do what Ben is doing, and in the original video by Emir (the one that I'm trying to do) he is clearly moving the strings up and down to get the vibrato, whereas Ben seems to be moving his wrist from side to side but the string is staying still.

It's driving me a bit crazy now blink.gif

Mate, there are different kinds of vibrato, Ben's is elipsoidal as I have described in my last post while Emir's is vertical as you have noticed.

If you want Emir's you have to go with fixing your thumb on the upper side of the neck (the anchor you need to pivot your wrist) then fret the not which you want to vibrate with your ring finger, while the middle and index are supporting by fretting right behind the middle finger on the same string.

The index can be held in such a way that it only touches the strings - it will mute unwanted noise.

Now with this position move your wrist up and down describing a vertical motion smile.gif

This is how I see it - does it work for you ?

Cosmin

Hey Cosmin

Thanks for doing this. Unfortunately I hurt my back a week ago and haven't been able to practise. I should be ok soon and will carry on with trying to nail it.
