killer playing there Jeff!
Love yer tempo change at about the 3 min. mark.
First, I’m no vibrato pro by any sense of the word. I’m getting much from Justin’s lessons on this skill, that I don’t have yet.
But from what I see in yer vid. You are using your wrist to make your bends. From the lessons (from my memory), I think this is correct.
Agreed. Your using your finger for the vibrato.
I’m thinking that bending and vibrato are similar. Just that the vibrato is making them bends rapid and repetitive. Therefor, you seem to already have the technique, it just needs to be applied to the vibrato.
I may be thinking incorrect, but that’s how I’m looking at vibrato. Myself, I need to become better at it myself.
Also, keep in mind, from my memory of Jusitn’s lessons, there are at least 3 different ways to do vibrato (again, from my memory of the lesson).
1, like a violinist. Kinda moving your finger up and down the neck rapidly.
2, using the wrist as the lever
3, I can’t remember three. Shrug. Maybe it’s pushing the string down hard and then light. You can adj. pitch by pushing the string down hard for #, then return to proper pitch by lessening pressure on the string to just fret the note. Don’t know if that’s 3 or not, but doing that does change pitch, just not very much.
Myself, I do best at 1, but I don’t think it’s the best way (it seems like too mild of vibrato to me). 2, if I remember from Justin’s lesson is the way to go. Both of us got the idea, we just need to practice it more perhaps. I know I’m working on it, but I aint there yet.
Your playing is great man, I enjoyed your rendition of that song.
Lucky for us. Looks like @Lisa_S has posted up the lesson. That should refresh ‘my’ memory anyways. I’ve not looked at it yet for ‘my’ refresher, but I’ll be interested in finding out what #3 is for method…
