Observation made tonight: Using the Pentatonic without your pinky. The angle of your left hand when your using your middle and ring for the bends makes it much easier to use this kind of wide vibrato. I'm thinking this may play a big role. What do you guys think??

Yes, you definitely need a left hand angle in order get that type of vibrato, otherwise the tendency is to just use the strength of the finger. I still use my pinky a lot for any scales, including pentatonic, but I make sure I can go from whatever I'm playing to a nice, offset angle smile.gif
