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.

This is one of the best versions of this lesson I've ever seen - excellent work !! smile.gif

You've got the correct technique.. you're getting an effective vibrato sound and you moved well.

If you can, try to see if you can replicate the faster vibrato that I do as that will give you even more range to express yourself with, you will be able to go from subtle to violent ! smile.gif

Hey mate!

I'm just here to grade, as we have discussed this in your mentoring program, but I am glad that Ben also agrees with what I told you, as it's his creation and it's clear that he has the best vision over the lesson!

Good work here! Keep it up!

Hi mate! As the guys said, you are doing an awesome job with this lesson. However I think that you should keep this lesson in your diary routine to make this vibrato technique sound more regular and wider, as Ben does. From time to time, play again Ben's version and practice the lesson over his playing to try to emulate his way of applying this technique. It will be very helpful.

If you compare your left hand movement with Ben's movement you will notice a difference, his movement is much more controlled and it's based on his wrist. Your movement also start from the writs but your hand is doing some extra movements that make it look less controlled, and this affects your vibrato.

Ok mate, you have more news at Gab's Army thread. Keep on the great job! wink.gif
