I was listening to one of Eric Clapton's music video on "Wonderful Tonight", for the intro solo electric, what effect is he using? I'm sorry for this newbie question, I just got my first new electric and I want to play the song for my wife :P, with just the guitar, it didn't soound like it. Its like a screaming effect, which I likey likey . Thanks.

What I meant was that there are sting bends not vibrato but there is a lot of vibrato in that song.

vibrato does involve bending the string but it is not called a bend,

a bend is when you bend a string to a higher note....thus creating a new note (1/4 step bends the only exception)

vibrato is rapidly the moving the string to stop the note from decaying, it`s the movement of the string that creates the note in the 1st place.

Exactly. And there is plenty of vibrato used in that intro, along with some bends - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NaMuBX4aMmw&feature=related watch around :27 seconds
