I've recently been watching Steve on a few videos. I noticed his vibrato in all of them is wierd (to me). It looks like he's doing the kind of vibrato that you normally see a violinist doing. I remember reading it somewhere on Vai.com, but I looked back at this the other day and I still can't seem to get the same technique to work for me.
I did a few searches in the forum, but I can't really find any mention of it. I'm still stuck in the (kind of) Malmsteen finger waggle - pivot from the knuckle and twisting your wrist to bend the string up and down.
Basically do any of you use Vai's flavour of vibrato? Any tips as to how to get it off, and why you like it(or don't)??
(I'd guess that Steve likes it....)
Thanks in advance,
