Does anyone know how I can develop a good vibrato? Everytime, I try to do it, it sounds like a fly in my ear.

part of it is not trying/thinking so hard, and just let it flow naturally if you can

1. learn your bending
2. Make sure you press down hard enough so the string keeps ringing
3. bend really fast up and down (this will take some training, it will get faster)

if this is what you have already done, then just keep practicing, it will get better...

There are some excellent lessons on UG. Just go to the homepage, change the search bar from "Song Names" to "Lessons", and then enter "Vibrato". There are some good lessons there. Good luck.

listen to david gilmour from pink floyd. his vibratos are perfect.

i read an interview by him once, he described how he was trying to match the vibrato of a person singing (in this case a female). He described how she would sing a note, and right near the end as she was running out of breath, you would hear that small little vibrato shake in her voice. he then spent 300 years practicing that in his basement to create some of the worlds best vibrato.

I agree with the David Gilmour thing, but also check out Mark Knophler's and Derek Trucks vibrato.

Just listen to theirs and try to emulate it. Eventually, your own preferences will begin to emerge.
There may be times when it is impossible to prevent injustice, but there should never be a time when we fail to protest it.
