3 Killer Blues Licks To Hone Your Vibrato

Have you ever wondered what makes guitar legends such as B.B King, Eric Clapton, and David Gilmour sound so unique and flavourful? A big part of each of their individual sounds comes from their personal takes on the technique we’re going to be covering today – vibrato!

Vibrato comes in all shapes and sizes, from slow and wide to quick and narrow with room for variation all in between. It’s such a personalized sound that often guitarists can be identified just by the sound that they bring to one note. In this lesson we’ll lay the groundwork for you to discover several common types of vibrato and licks in which they were used, and from there you’ll be able to start your journey of discovering your own personal vibrato.

Watch as Mike B takes you through a detailed instruction on how to get vibrato into your fingers, and then practice what you’ve learned on some killer licks from B.B. King, Eric Clapton, and Pink Floyd. Make sure you get the free PDF downloaded, and I hope you enjoy this lesson!
