Hey there!

I can't vibrato a note when I've bent to it, it sounds disgusting and really not pleasant in the slightest, but I don't know where to start with it. My vibrato's pretty sound when I'm playing a note normally, however.

Can anyone give me some tips?

Personally, when o do it, I won't vibrato any higher than the bend I'm doing. I'll release lower and go back to the pitch, repeat. But quickly.

just do ur vibrato, UP to the bending note.
So shift between the note you want, and the original note IN TIME with the music, and all should be well
- Ibanez S470 (2004)
- late 70's vintage Fender Stratocaster (USA)
- VOX VT100 Amp
- Digitech Whammy Pedal
- Weeping Demon Wah Pedal
- Visual Sound Volume Pedal
- MXR Micro Amp

i usually go with what Koshman32 said for normal use.

maybe for a bend like this, it would actually help if you use "bad" technique and get your forearm involved

Are you bending with your fingers or your wrist? You should really do it with a wrist motion. It gives you better control, it's easier on your hand, and it makes vibrato easier.
