I was wondering if there's a certain technique for bar type power chord vibratos. I can't seem to accomplish this.

DAD. He's in drop D.

If you fingered each individual string as opposed to flat-out barring it you'd have a much easier time vibratoing it, I'd assume.

well, if you had looked, you would've seen it was indeed in drop d.

threadstarter: no clue. you could do it in regular tuning like this:
D|--8
A|--8
E|--6


and just do the vibrato like you would normally. either that or get a trem.

Hmm, I guess there's no certain technique... I could always use the tremolo on the strat, but I like keeping them tuned standard. Jason Hale is an amazing guitarist, underrated, I think. I'll just keep trying different techniques until I get it to work.

Thanks a lot for y'alls help!

barre those notes with your index finger and instead of moving the finger move the rest of the hand, that will give you a nice vibrato (bb king style baby)

or if you have jumbo frets, you can try pressing down harder and get a vibrato effect...
