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: Ben's Vibrato Odyssey 5 by Ben Higgins

Here's my first attempt.
Vibrato is a big weakness of mine.
This lesson has been a great workout these last days.

Hi that was a very good effort. You've got the basics of a strong vibrato now smile.gif

Just keep up with this, the technique will need some refining. When you do the very first slow bends, they are slightly out of pitch. I know that the point of the lesson is ultimately to help vibrato but getting the pitch more accurate will also help you with bending smile.gif

Hey there mate smile.gif

Ben has pointed out the fact that your vibrato has greatly evolved, which is very true and I also think you did a fine job with this lesson.

I would slow down a bit and as Ben stated, work on the pitches of the bends and on the faster vibrato examples occurring after minute 0:26 - everything goes pretty fast there and you tend to lose a bit of control when executing those parts.

My opinion is that if you gain control over the pitches, you are good to go with this lesson. You could also record over Ben's original take so that you may have a means to compare the correctness of the pitches.

Keep rocking!
