David's Tip of the Day: Different Types of Tremolo and Vibrato - Part 4, Vibrato

David Barrett Admin's picture

The 3' sounds great with a vibrato, but for most players the 3" swings too much in pitch and is not a very pleasing sound. When performing the 3" try moving your jaw up and down to produce the vibrato. The more you move your jaw the larger the change in pitch. The speed of the jaw movements depends on how fast you want the vibrato. This is commonly known as the "Chewing Vibrato."
