Vibrato

Pro Player Chapters  Looping  Slow-Mo 
Make Your Guitar Speak

Vibrato is an essential part of playing the blues soulfully. It has the power to make your guitar speak but it also has the power to distract. Underdeveloped vibrato can ruin what you’re trying to communicate with a song.

But how do you do vibrato? Shouldn’t it be natural? Nope. Good vibrato technique is absolutely not natural. Your muscles must learn to move in ways they’re not used to. Vibrato is a 100 minute lesson that teaches you how to slowly develop the muscle memory for doing several vibrato techniques.
