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 Petr, this is a good effort with this lesson. It requires a lot of control.

At the moment I think your take suffers from not having enough vibrato. I don't mean wide and heavy vibrato but just some subtle vibrato, especially on the bends.

To add vibrato to bends, what I do is slightly let the bend down and then push it back up to full pitch again. Do this a few times to get the vibrato effect. I find this works better than pushing the string beyond he full pitch.

So to recap. Bend up to full pitch. Release it slightly and push back up to pitch again. Do this a few times. That's how you get that wobbling vibrato effect on a bend and pushing it back to pitch after each release helps it stay 'in tune'.

Hope that helps.

Hey there!

Ben's pointed lack of vibrato is most visible issue through all the take. At the same time it's the hardest thing to be done in this lesson, because most of it happens on bends. I'm sure it's just another step you'll make to add even more flavor to your playing

I'll start from most ear catching from author's perspective - 0:12 to 0:15 needs to be fixed. You play a slightly different rhythm than in the original lesson. Review the tabs and try to practise with original lesson in teh background, you'll easily notice what's wrong.

At 0:49 you should try to keep notes ringing as long as they can. You tend to cut their sustain to early, to make yourself more space to shift the position or change the fretting fingers of your left hand. That's a kind of skill itself - the ability to make quick and precise position shifts.

As for the bends, you have a tendency to bend a little too low. In the first part we can hear you correcting the pitch while note rings out. That's makes us feel, or pitch "detector" works fine. You need to work out your "detector" speed with your muscle sync so the quickly execute what your ears tell to fix.

From the good things you can play quite clean - muting unwanted noises and with quite consisten picking hand mechanics. You're on teh good path smile.gif
