death grip on the Violin
Just some Videos that helped me with trying to crush the violin while i tried to play it and with vibrato I shook the violin so hard while doing vibrato it was causing issues with my hand moving causing me to go out of tune.

Thanks for the links @Mark - really interesting - especially the second item.  I usually end up actually going all the way to the fingerboard (although my finger-pressure is pretty light - I mean I'm not actually "stabbing into the strings"), but sometimes I will do as he suggests - and when it works for me (LOL) I get a nice tone from the instrument.  I suspect the quality of the sound (and the actual ability to do it) probably depends to a fair extent on the strings and indeed the instrument itself.

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

Good stuff. I was quite surprised to find I could get a clear note without going all the way to the fingerboard. I had thought that would give me harmonics.

It will take some practice to play that much more lightly, but I can see how it would improve speed.

I also like Karpinski's exercize with the middle knuckle, to keep the fingertip loose. I'm still a good ways from being able to do a vibrato, but even now I can tell that will help a lot.
