hey, you're starting to get the feel for it... just takes a lot of practice and proper positioning. Don't expect it to happen overnight... better plan on weeks of effort.clap

I think you're starting to get it.  Very cool!

Just myself, I tend to think of vibrato and trills as "ornamentation" and so I haven't worked much on them yet.  But I note that a lot of folks think of them as an absolute part of the sound of violin and want to work on them sooner.  It's cool however you decide to do it.

thumbs-up

Was kinda hard for me to distinguish the difference. Some vibrato sounded like a weak trill and vice versa.

Keep working on it, it'll come sooner or later.

BTW, how long have you been playing ?    dunno

I am not working on vibrato much either.  I try it a little maybe every couple of days, but I don't worry about it.  I have this idea that it will naturally grow out of the practice of rolling the fingertip on the string to adjust pitch.  I think of vibrato as a technique to adjust pitch quickly or to cover (hide) imprecise fingering or both.

Exactly! If you're good at it, it's a seemless coverup... thumbs-up

I've seen some player on youtube, where the vibrato motion always starts even before the bow touches the string for their first note.  So it is just a constant wobble in their playing.  To my way of thinking, if I wanted that sort of sound I'd just use my electric and plug it into a phaser or phase shifter or flanger box. 

Not bad, or anything, if it is what you like.  It can work, musically.  It just isn't what I want in my own playing.  To me, vibrato is like sliding up to or down from a note, something one does at specific spots where one feels it sounds good.

you are so right on Daniel. Makes you wonder if those folks ever stop shaking! lol. Perhaps they make martinis for a living, shaken of course, not stirred.
