Oh so it's a kinda slow trill on the nut? I cannot really vibrato yet but this is a good tip for open strings and I will try it.

Thanks Jim,

The only problem with that kind of open string vibrato is that the pitch will be slightly high. Not by much since you are only doing a little but still. This is fine if you vibrate above the pitch on all the other notes as well but not if you have the highest point of the vibrato as the defined pitch.

Another way to vibrate open strings is to vibrate the fourth finger on the string below while playing the open string. It actually gives you a vibrato on that open string. It is commonly done.

Thank You, WorldFiddler! Very interesting way to vibrate the open strings surprisedsmile

I've found another way to do it accidentally: it will vibrate if vibrato is made on the next string on the same note: for example open D will vibrate if make vibrato on D on A string (3rd finger).../hope i'm understandable LOL/.

I was so impressed with this discovery... asked my teacher about this and she said: "Yep! You didn't know?" facepalm...

So thank You very much for the lesson... Hope i will not invent "the bicycle" anymore...
