I thought I’d post this I think I’m doing it right but not sure! Maybe someone can tell me please ? I didn’t think I’d like the knuckle dropping feeling ( I know that’s weird) but it feels ok.

Looks like you are doing It right for me, Hard to tell but I think it sounds like you are pressing way to hard. I myself am trying to learn arm vibrato, what you are doing Is wrist, with wrist you keep the same movement in the lower position as well, I found arm easier than wrist, but its a matter of personal preference. The only thing I can teĺl you that may be helpful is that your fingers must be completely relaxed, its very difficult to do but from my point of view unless my hand and arm is completely relaxed it makes itt very hard indeed.. A lot of people who do the kind of vibrato you are practicing, is that once they use it in the first position they tend to move their wrist backwards and forwards rather than their hand, this gives the feeling of  vibrato but is incorrect. All I can tell you though is my own opinion and remember I am still learning this very hard technique as well. Once you get it, the struggle is then perfecting and enhancing it.

Thank you Stringy! I actually cut my finger after the making of that video! Maybe it’s a sign and I’m not supposed to be learning vibrato yet!! I’m staying in third positing for the time being I’m in no hurry to go down to first. I’m just trying to get the motion!  I’ll address how hard I’m pressing !

Nooooo, not a sign that you are not supposed to learn vibrato yet..... 🤣

This was a while ago right? You posted other videos where your progress was very evident. I think I'm just seeing these posts out of order.
