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 Sack!

This one is a great choice! Vibrato and bending as essential techniques for rock guitarist and should always be part of our daily practice.

You are one the right track here, but there is still some more work to do. I like that fact that you are adding wide vibrato as the lesson requires it, and also as Yngwie does. The next step is to be able to control even more the movement to make it sound more regular, and natural. Try to make it start more gradually, and to connect more with the backing's groove.

I also notice that there are some little moments in which you have pitch issues. This will be also fixed once you have more technique control, but pay attention to it too.

Your bends obviously need more practice since that's where the vibrato is less regular, so isolating and repeating them can be a good idea.

Ok mate, that's all by now, keep on the hard work!!

Yeah!! This is extremely promising -

You have the foundation for a killer vibrato here, you just need to get comfy with it as Gab said. Please promise me for all future playing that you think as consciously about your vibrato as you did here.

There are some small quirks here and the like slight hand syn issues at the end and some bad pitches when bending.

But overall you totally nailed the vibrato part. Well done - you get an 8 from me.

Well Done!! Your vibrato is off to a very good start. It is quite similar to how Yngwie would do it, which is always a good thing IMHO as he is a master of vibrato. You seem to understand about starting at a still point and then slowly increasing the vibrato and decreasing so it sounds dynamic. Also, it's not tepid or timid vibrato or side to side vibrato. There are a couple of pitch issues as mentioned, one at 20 seconds for example, but getting pitch nailed during a bend with vibrato on top of it is something that takes time and repetition. I'm sure you'll nail it! If you want to try some speedy bits in SHRED BOOTCAMP btw just shoot me a personal message. Solid 8 from me!

Hey there!

You're doing some necessary and essential workout on basic techniqes. It is a good way to develope faster.

As mentioned - great that you went for a wider vibrato, as in original lesson. It is still lackign some consistency - in depth and speed of vibration but you focus on the pitch and that's something important as well. Keep in mind (as you probably already noticed) these are one of most diffuclut techniques to perform clean. IT requires some time before you'll feel natural and the will get that smoothned we expect.

I'm observing your left hand and I have a good feeling because seems liek the proper muscles are doign the job. Just keep up this way and you'll get to the point smile.gif
