What guitarist do you think has the coolest sounding vibrato, or the best at doing it?

Friedman and SRV for me. Holy Wars and Hangar 18 show a good Friedman. Texas Flood has awesome vibrato in it.

I know its cliche but I think Jimi hendrix, or maybe David Gilmour's bar vibrato

Yeah, for sure. Zakk's harm. vibratos are incredible, especially considering he doesn't use a tremelo arm.

Wasn't Gilmour pretty much the first guitarist to really implement it into his style?

Malmsteen can do some bigger, faster vibrato's but doesn't always sound good. As for sounding good I'd say Zakk.
Bleh.

Most of those guys mentioned have great vibrato

i like (in no certain order): zakk wylde, malmsteen, vai, satriani, dime, friedman, skolnick (testament), hendrix, clapton, gary moore (how has no-one mentioned him?), mark knopfler, nuno bettencourt, john sykes, brian may, richie kotzen, ok, i got sick typing, but there's lots of them

well i don't think so, cos he said he liked friedman, who (to the best of my knowledge) has never used a whammy bar (in megadeth at least)

For blus B.B. King but for everything else its Steve Vai. This guy has so many different types of vibrato and he just practices for hours playing one note with the different styles of vibrato, but it sure pays off.

Steve Vai Rocks!!!
---
Anyways... For the best vibrato? Um... Steve Vai... I think I may be forgetting one of my other favourites... Hm...

Yngwie is odd... Does anyone have the G3: Live in Denver DVD?
Well, lets just say that on "Rockin' In The Free World" he switches guitars three times because he broke a string on the first, the second went out of tune because he was -trying- to solo throughout the WHOLE BLOODY SONG!!! and the third I think something happened after the threw the guitar around himself.... He doesn't even play the song right, all he does it solo throughout the whole song... spotlight hog... Pfft....

The woman in the music store told me "If you turn the amp up past 3 it will BREAK!". I was on 10 within a week. It didn't break.

Gilbert.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.
