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.

Herr Mad ! I'm over the moon (as we say in the UK) to see you've chosen to work on vibrato smile.gif

A great result too... at the start, the effect wasn't so obvious but you eventually got into the groove and the rest of the notes had some killer classical vibrato on them.

So, your mission for that style of vibrato, is the get the same kind of results when you use your little finger as well because it wasn't as effective as when you used your second finger. The same goes for your 3rd finger. Practice getting your 2nd, 3rd & 4th finger all capable of producing that effective vibrato. You might even want to ake your hand position more parallel to the fretboard.. even more 'classical'. I'm not sure, it might make that extra bit of difference to your grip smile.gif

Good work - I'm impressed !

Hi friend! You are on the right track with this technique. Ben's feedback is excellent since he created that lesson and is a master of this technique. I agree with his words, you have to work a bit more the vibrato with the finger 4 and make it sound more natural with every finger.
Keep on working hard! smile.gif
