I was just wondering whether you guys thought it was totally necessary to use your wrist with every type of vibrato that you do? I only use my wrist now and then usually on the higher frets when i'm using like 3 fingers to do bigger bends and stuff but other than that i mainly just use my finger muscles.

I noticed that people like Marcus use the wrist all the time. I had a look at how he was doing vibrato on the first lead of the nocturnal vision lesson and the first note on the G string he was using his wrist a lot. I also noticed that guys like Zakk Wylde do the same but i just can't seem to be able to do that. Or at least i can do it a bit but its hellishly slow, i can do it fine using my fingers but i just wondered if this is considered bad practice for whatever reason

yea, that's exactly what I mean. His vibrato has soul, it's controlled and it sounds great! but Janis... he just whizz his fingers around and hopes for the best... it sounds terrible in comparison.

I agree!
I haven't heard much of Jani before though, but he looks a little nervous in this vid. Maybe his vibrato usually is better? smile.gif

I sure hope so, but you can really see his motion. That won't change, just the amount of control. One thing I disslike about Syu is that his picking isn't perfect, I mean, it's clean and cool... but it's too bright and a tad too scratchy. Well, he's badass anyway, he can shred with soul and he's a good songwriter biggrin.gif But you can really tell the difference a good vibrato makes in that video. It's a lot more important than Jani playing 32 note triplets and syu going for 32 notes maximum or something like that.
