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: Pop Rock Solo - Beginner by Stephane Lucarelli

Hi - This is take #2. As directed, I've worked on the bend accuracy and changing the vibrato style to use the rock/blues style, not just the classical approach. On that subject - apart from doing this take more like Stephane's original - why is this important? If they sound the same, what difference does the technique make? In some cases, high E-string for example, it is just easier to use classical vibrato - side to side, not up and down etc. Anyway, I've tried to do this take like Stephane's original and use side to side vibrato where he is using it, (although I notice he does throw in some classical stuff too along the way...). So - here it is! Hope it's a pass! Thanks for watching! :) Z.

Hey mate smile.gif

Much better! I think it'll be a 9 from me, simply because you need a little bit more flow and consistency in your playing to get the 10 - in other word, it is technically correct but a bit rigid in terms of interpretation.

You asked, why it is important to manage to mimic Steph's moves as close as possible? Simple - this is the goal of the REC zone, that by being able to mimic the lessons to the smallest detail, you will develop your own technique to THAT level in this context. Developing further tho, is your responsibility and it will be based only on your ambition to pursue a certain technique further and further.

PM me if you would like to develop the subject smile.gif

Hi Zoot! I think that you have really improved man. Both bending and vibrato technique are better now, there is still room to make them more consistent but now most of your bends reach the correct pitch and vibrato sounds natural. If you continue improving this techniques and adjust a it more your timing you'll have a 10 soon. Keep on the good job!

Like guys mentioned. Now it's better.smile.gif Now answering Your question. Wrist vibrato when mastered has a wider possible range than classical (believe me - I was playing classical too for years). And yes - it's a huge difference. You'll probably notice when You switch more to the wrist because now it's still a bit too much from the fingers smile.gif))

Just a funny thought smile.gif Imagine Your words reversed by the blues musician playing classical guitar and asking why do the classical vibarto if blues vibrato is the same smile.gif
