> 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.

Alright mate! I'm on it wink.gif

Hey, Cosmin. Just checking in. I'm still working on the vibrato lesson. It's slow going,and pretty odd, but I'll probably record something for your opinion in a few days.

Well, mainly that I can't hear any vibrato when doing the classical style. I switched to lighter strings (9s), and can really only hear it on the wound strings. I can hear a difference with the typical up-down vibrato, so using a wide circle makes a uniform vibrato sound, but I don't think its totally what the lesson is trying to accomplish.

Also, on the e string, I occasionally pull it off the side of the fretboard. I push the string towards the center of the fretboard, but sometimes during the release, I go a little too far.

I think I'll get it. It may just take lomger than the other lessons.

Hey man, it's only a matter of control smile.gif Nothing more nothing less - when doing the classical style, you must exaggerate a bit in order to see the effects of your actions and then dose the effort in such a way that you will obtain a fluid sound. Same with the E string - execute the motion slow and see where you have to stop in order not to go 'overboard' biggrin.gif

Let me know if there's something more and...use your ears when vibrating, mate smile.gif They NEVER lie to you!

Thanks. You're right. It's all in the control. I took it one note at a time and tonight was a LOT better. So, hopefully I'll be able to put it all together soon!

wink.gif That's the spirit! In the mean time, remember to work on dynamics as well - I mean, when vibrating, try to be more or less aggressive in order to observe the results. It will prove very useful later on when you will want to apply various dynamics to your vibrato in phrasing smile.gif
