I have a lot of people ask if I am ruining my guitar when I play live because of this technique. For me It is also a great addition to add life to sustained chords that everybody should be aware of.
I have never had issues with the neck of my guitars and I have also never heard of anybody having issues, and since it is such a nice chorus effect to add to the music when you feel like it then I thought I’d make a video on it.
This is not a technique that I invented. I picked it up from Bill Frisell and Scofield, but you’ll also see Ted Greene do it often.
For this topic there isn’t much point in making a long article describing how to do this. You are better of just checking out the video!
I hope you can use the lesson to get started using this vibrato technique. It’s a very lush effect that works so well to add some life to the sustained chords in a chord melody like I do in the intro of the video.
If you have any questions, comments or suggestions for topics or how I can make the lessons better then please let me know. Leave a comment on the video or send me an e-mail. That is the best way for me to improve my lessons and make them fit what you are searching for.
