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.

Original lesson: String Bending by Stephane Lucarelli

Hello to all! I'm back again :D here i attempt to improve my bending skills, as all the instructors on my other video said. so that what i did, i have learned and cover this lesson. in my past video, im having trouble syncing my DAW and my Video software. thats why timing is an issue there. so i hope i did good this time. all the best! -James

Hi James, well done. I'm pleased to see that you're making the effort to work on string bending. It's such an important aspect of guitar playing.

Generally speaking, you hit most of those bends really well. You also did good on the pre-bends too, which a lot of people struggle with. Now all it needs is just more and more and more of this.... and then a little bit more ! So you did a very good take but don't stop there. Keep working on bending and improving things so they sound smoother. At the moment it's still a bit rigid and sometimes awkward but this is to be expected. These things will just improve naturally as you do more of this smile.gif

You did a good job! You still need to work on this lesson tho! Some bends were fine but some were off also your timing wasn't perfect and you are rushing a little bit!
I think if you will keep practicing this lesson at a slower tempo you will get it to sound perfect in no time!

Hey James! I will go with the guys and underline the fact that slow practicing will only develop your skills more and more. Bending should be regarded as a craft which needs time to be refined so keep working hard!

Hi man! I have to agree with the other instructors about your bending in this lesson. It seems that the problem is not your ear, the problem is that you still need to gain more strength with your left hand. Keep on working! wink.gif
