Corey Harris Aug 29, 2013 usual your playing here is nice.  I think it is good that you added something of your own to the song.  Your slide playing is clear and it sounds nice.  I would only suggest that you loosen your wrist, and try to use a lighter touch on the strings.  As for the vibrato on the third and fifth fret, second string I will leave that up to you.  It sounds good to me.  Do what comes natural.

As for your request that sounds like a good idea.  When I think that would help you I will definitely suggest it.  There are a lot of other students who could benefit from this approach as well.  Thanks.

Alex Barbera Aug 24, 2013's my feedback. I have a request if possible. I thought that could be usefull if you for example ask me to do a video of a part that I should work more on.for example a request of a video  only doin alternating base line without doin the melody or something else...just like we have a lesson in person...we students, I thought, have this tendence to play the whole song without focusing our attention on the things we should work more on....what do you think about it? If you ask me, you would make me only a favour..;)

I throw in some little variations on the b section that I feel fit well in the song...about the melody lines...Should I add more vibrato on the 3rd and 5th fret od the 2nd string?!?!?!
