His vibrato at the beginning is just painful to listen to. His whammy-vibrato is somewhat better, but not by much.
As it stands, his vibrato stands out in a not so good way, and quite frankly it sounds like a chicken being choked
NONONONO Malmsteen has an awful vibrato...
Why does having a vibrato like Malmsteen's sound bad? Bending the pitch of the note beyond one semitone makes it sound like a mutated, floppy trill.
Essentially, this means that if Malmsteen is going to be playing classical music, his style should not be proclaimed through the use of a a wailing, banshee vibrato that sounds like a bird being butchered.
I said if he chooses to employ a wider vibrato, then he should slow it down or he'll end up sounding like Malmsteen which would make him sound like
2) a player with a crappy vibrato
Malmsteen's wide vibrato wasn't possible back in the 18th century because they didn't have scalloped fretboard Strats or Marshalls back then, so it shouldn't start now... That's what jazz / rock / blues is for!
Malmsteen's vibrato is revered because it can only be achieved on a scalloped fretboard.
Don't confuse YOUR OPINION with FACTS! All of the above is your opinion, with is fine, but they are no facts..
In the opinion of thousands and thousands of guitarists, Yngwie DOES have a great vibrato. I never heard anyone say Yngwie has a bad vibrato.
It would be just a stupid to say Steve Vai has no technique...
Obviously, you don't know jack about this. Perhaps you do know a lot about classical music, but Yngwie is a ROCK GUITARIST! NOT a classical musician.
Please think before you post what is a fact and what is your opinion..
