Being able to hear vibrato is the first step in playing it well yourself. Who has a vibrato sound that you like?

I like Eric Johnson’s vibrato (kind of in the Eric Clapton vein): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0AmTSkPEd2I. Doesn’t translate super well to the ʻukulele, but it’s something I would aspire to when I was first getting my vibrato down.

Brad, Thanks for that clip of Eric Johnson’s vibrato technique. You are right about it not translating exactly to 'ukulele. :_ukulele:At least not to that extent, but it gives a good idea of what we try to accomplish or convey.
