This is from Vai's 'Giant Balls Of Gold'. How do you play stuff like this? I've tried using all fingers, but it gets awkward, and quickly moving the hand up the neck is also hard. Please tell me the best technique to help play this, and I'll practise it, promise!
Oh **** I gotta do vibrato

Haven't tried it but it looks like the E (2 on the D string) with your first finger and the first C# (4 on the E string) with your second finger, then the second C# with your first finger and the first G# (6 on the D) with the second and so on.
