How to get a good vibrato
« on: August 06, 2019, 11:14:25 AM »
I've been playing guitar for quite awhile now, but i haven't put too much thought about learning vibratos, dahil sa genre na tinutugtog ko, doesn't require that much vibrato, but when i tried learning different songs esp with longer solos, saw those videos na may mga vibrato na when i try to
imitate, ang hirap gawin, then i decided na dpat makuha ko yun or atleast matutunan ko yun,

(please bear with me on the terms i know based on my understanding)

especially yung prang "full bend tapos vibrato", when i try doing it, hirap sumunod daliri ko, yung index finger ko pag nka full bend na yung string,
prang yun na yun, yung pwersa nsa pagka bend na, when i try to vibrato it, wla as in stuck ayaw gumalaw..

i know you had your ways and it took time bago fully na develop yun, if you can provide tips and suggestions how to have one, by all means,
gusting gusto ko syang matutunan if possible mai apply ko sa lahat ng daliri ko..

TIA

Based on your description above, IMO, you would need to develop finger strength more plus more vibrato and bending practice. To gain more finger strength, you can try using higher gauge strings. Hope that would be effective for you.  :)

play blues it'll come naturally. or practice ka sa acoustic guitar with med-heavy guage string.
isa to sa mga tinitignan ko sa gitarista, I don't care about the speed, accuracy or kung gano ka awesome or cool yung licks mo.
madali malaman kung pilit or natural ang skills ng gitarista pag tinignan/hear mo silang mag vibrato at bending  :-D phrasing it is

IMO

eto lang siguro tip ko sa pag practice.
don't feel the string. feel the board

my bends came naturally after studying Pentatonic Blues :)

subscribing cause you know. same kind of problem but ego is blocking the learning. hate to admit it but yeah. I'm lacking in phrasing and finger strength.
Sa pinipig, bukod sa pwede mo singhutin, pwede mo rin tikman.

sa phrasing, kinig ng bago, tapos gaya. yun yung naging sistema ko. over time, maiincorporate mo siya in your playing.

Kagagaya ko kay Cantrell kaya ako natuto magvibrato. Listen/watch someone play who'll inspire you to play.

Kelangan check mo rin yung action ng gitara mo. Para sa akin, mas ok mag "full bend and shake that freakin' note" sa mga gitara na hindi sobrang baba ang action...or kung sa higher frets, yung may scallop.  Meron akong gitara na hindi ako ma vibrato ng maayos kasi nag ffret-out. Patay na yung tunog sa bend pa lng.  :lol:

Kung hirap ka talaga sa "full bend and vibrato"...try mo yung vibrato na ginagawa ng mga naka fretless instruments (violin, cello, fretless bass etc.). Hindi sila nag bend..more on finger slides.  :)


Its not the kill, Its the thrill of the chase...

nag kunwari pa ko na pentatonic blues. ang totoo niyan, naadik ako kay John Mayer hahahaha
spattan mo muna yung mga simple licks niya then slowly gravitate towards the more complex stuff.

recommended listening:

City Love - John Mayer
Gravty - John Mayer
Come Back to Bed John Mayer
Covered in Rain - John Mayer (Any Given Thursday)

then watch the live albums, Where The Light Is.
ganda ring basehan ng magandang over driven and clean tones si mayer.


if it also helps, I studied a lot of Andy James' Lick Library 6 weeks of shred, weeks 1-3. di ko na naituloy yung 4-6 for shred.
yung 1-3, teaches you the pentatonic blues scales, bending and vibrato. sobrang helpful neto. first 2 weeks pa lang mejo rinig mo na yung difference in playing agad in terms of "patunog". yung speed and accuracy of course, will come naturally as you practice.

nkaka tuwa nman kasi talaga pag aralan, kung hindi mo man makita yung improvement mo. for sure mapapansin ng ka banda mo or nakikinig sayo

I'm not sure with others but I rely with the "feel" while playing. Sa vibrato ko kasi nailalabas yung "landi" at "pilantik" nun phrasing, depende sa kung ano ang bagsakan (debel-debel ika nga ni Kevs, o mapa bluesy stuff man).

Not sure though with the technical aspect of how to develop that.

And speaking of vibrato, recently ko lang napagtanto na hindi ko gusto vibrato ni Slash. Napapangitan ako. No offense sa mga fanboy dyan ha. Mas trip ko yung gaya ng kay Cantrell at Andy James, at syempre si Andy Timmons. Nagwewet ako sa vibrato nila. (Well, that doesn't sound right but it is what it is hahaha)

You don't need strings if all your tone is in your fingers.  :roll: :)
