Why do you think it is unique ?

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

I must warn that this is a very bad vibrato description and technique. Your fingers are not made to move side to side as she describes not to mention that it is extremely difficult to get an even vibrato this way. Also, the intonation will never be accurate with this type of vibrato. Your finger must come down on the pitch, then you pull back allowing the finger tip to roll back and forth (not side to side).

You can fluctuate your type of vibrato with arm, wrist, hand, finger and combinations of all and even different parts of the finger itself such as the tip vs the flat fat part. More erect or less erect but never side to side. Many bass and cello players play side to side because the neck is too thick to come around as we can. There are some with exceptional vibrato that manage to play back and forth vibrato. Please do not begin learning vibrato with the wrong technique.

Lol! I was just watching videos of Bach's double concerto on youtube to figure out what kind of vibrato was used for baroque music!

Because it's my first time seeing a vibrato like that haha, but kuya Pierre said that's the wrong way of vibrato.

That's why I posted that video here, thanks Pierre but I'll study vibrato maybe after a few months?because my bowing is not that good.

Hey! I tried to play lately the "To Zanarkand from Final Fantasy" and I'm trying to vibrato my notes, what kind of vibrato is more easy to learn? the wrist/hand or arm vibrato?

Probably wrist or arm. Concentrate on wrist vibrato first and be patient, it takes time. Keep flexible fingers and more weight on the left side of your fingers. Curve your fingers enough so that you have room to pull back.
