Original lesson: Blues Vibrato - SRV Style 2 by Denes Nagy

Short but sweet lesson. Self assessment: left hand a little bit too stiff; not the smooth motions seen on the original. Obviously a lot more practice would be required to achieve that, but I guess this is a good start. Hope you like it. Cheers, -Val

Hi mate,

Good job with this lesson! If you'd like to get even more from this one I would dedicate some extra time to adjust your vibrato technique. How? Comparing your left hand movement with Denes one in order to find out why your vibrato sounds "more nervous". This is related to a combination of "speed", "width" and also to the way you move your hand to do it (for example, he started the movement more from his wrist).

The idea is not to copy but I think that your vibrato can feel better and more connected with the backing and style. I've just seen your question at the mentoring program so check my answer there in a moment too.

Keep on the hard work!

Hey there!

First all it's a very good choice of lesson with a blues essentialls smile.gif My feedback won't be long because there is one critical problem to work on - vibrato. Your vibrato has a very common mistake at it's execution - you pull the string (bend a few cents up) and you vibrate the note that becaomes out of pitch. I happens veeery often - most of us had this issue at the beginner stage. It's important to always fully release the bend to a "100% flat" position. Other-wise it will sound out of tune. Vibrato is liek a series of pulses. Vibrated note is not on the "bent-mode" thorugh all it's length.

Aside from this I like how you take care of noises - your right hand works fine and the tone is descent. Keep up the good work smile.gif

Hi Val, well done on your take.

The guys (and yourself) have already mentioned your vibrato needing improvement. One thing I would like to say is that the vibrato you currently play is still ok. You can still use this kind of vibrato as well BUT it's good to be able to do it from the wrist and to be able to make it nice and wide! smile.gif

Darius gave a you a great hint as well. When performing vibrato, be careful that you don't pull the string out of pitch and keep it out of pitch before adding vibrato. My video below may help you with this:

Your tone is very nice... but one thing I want to see and hear is more physical motion from your pick attack. Watch the original. It includes big motions and pick raking. Raking is where you sweep the pick through the muted strings to get an aggressive scraping sound before you launch into the note. So be a bit more passionate with your pick attack and don't worry about being too meticulous with the phrasing. This is the blues - let the feel come out!
