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.

Hi Ricky! I can notice an improvement in this lesson. You are starting to play it with more dynamics and the feeling is less nervous and more connected with the lessons groove. However, I think that most of your vibratos should be wider, as are played in the original lessons (compare your vibrato at 00:07 with the lesson) and your bending should be more consistent. Sometimes you don't reach the pitch correctly, you are very close, but not perfect.

That's all, keep on practicing, and focus on those things. Cheers!

There is a visible improvement but unfortunately vibrato technique is not something You can improve within days. We speak about some time period spent on really focused exercises until it became natural. Now I can see You try to involve the wrist of left hand but it's still not the way it should work. Give yourself some time. You can try also other lessons for vibrato. Remember- it's for Your good smile.gif If You spend some time on it now, You will never ever need to work on this again smile.gif

Hey mate!

I agree with the guys and aside the great advices given by them, I'd suggest you to take a look on Ben's Vibrato Odyssey series: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Bens-Vibrato-Odyssey/

They will help out with a lot of forms of vibrato smile.gif

Keep rocking!
