I've been playing guitar for quite a while now and Im currently doing a grade 4 by the board RGT. I've realised that i've been doing my vibrato wrong. Instead of using my wrist i've been using my fingers and when I try to use my wrist I find it barely possible to do and if I do suceed its really really slow.

I think I know how to do vibrato but how long should it take before I can do it properly?

Are there anyways to practise vibrato? How?

Cheers

Sometimes I will play notes to see is tight or loose I can get my vibrato. I've seen pros use their fingers before, sometimes it's just a preference thing.

Try playing in Half a step down.... I find it easier to get vibrato and bends that way.

The vibrato sounds nice on the A Minor scale.

I like using my whole arm to shake out a vibrato. It takes practice, but keep a guitar in your lap when you're watching tv or something. When you play notes, keep practicing your vibrato technique and really dig in with your whole arm. After a few weeks of daily practice it will feel natural.

To be honest there is no right or wrong way to vibrato as long as you're getting the desired sound - I don't really use my wrist as much as I should but I still get a sound I'm happy with. Some people use a classical side-side technique, some use an up down motion, some have a kind of circular thing going on but most people end up doing somthing that has little bits of them all.

+1. Do whatever sounds and feels the most "emoted" to you. I started with the "slide" style vibrato and then moved to a more finger controlled way. I'll work on wrist vibrato but I'd use it only where I feel its appropriate (john mayer's stuff uses it alot from what I can tell).
this is a post. there are many like it but this one is mine
