    Thanks Paul! When did vibrato become a natural thing for you; in other words, was it gradual or did you plug in one day and you just felt confident with it? Also, what would you say is the “typical” BPM for a nice wide vibrato?

    B-t-w, I can already tell this exercise is going to be just what the Doctor ordered!

      Yes, I woke up one day and my vibrato was really the way I wanted it to be. But, it was after hundreds of days waking up and practicing it with the exercise I described. I also jammed along with my drum machine or jam tracks focusing on vibrato in perfectly even slow rhythmic groupings. Practice it slow, 8th notes around 110-120 BPM is okay if you feel like you have control, if not go slower.
