when i first began, i heard from somewhere that a vibrato was a shake of the wrist causing the finger to wobble a bit in the fret and creating a vibrato. but 10 mins a go i watch an amazing video of some guy giving a lesson on vibrato. he was bending the strings a little with a circular motion of his wrist. it looked and sounded awesome, but when i tried to do it, i couldn't. instead of moving my wrist, just my finger was wiggling up and down bending the string. so the way i taught myself originally is the only way for me to do it, since i have practised it so long. is this an incorrect technique, or just a variation?

when you bend a string, do you move your wrist at all. I do. It's an extension of that. You have to practice a bit to get it down. If you practice bends that way, it kinds works the same thing at the same time.
leave me alone, please.

It just a variation. Vibrato is just raising and lowering the pitch with little fast bends. You can actually bend the string quickly, or you can wiggle your finger/whole hand. Or you can use wide vibrato with slightly slower "bends", but they're more extreme. (higher)

^^yeah, i shake my wrist pretty fast from side to side. actually, i think i will use my technique, except for when i have to perform a vibrato on a bent note, but that seems more natural for me

justin, that was easily the most inspiring, helpful piece of advice anyone has ever given me in regards to my musical pursuits.

When you shake your wrist do you do it left and right or back and forth? I know stupid question, but i need help.

George Lynch uses an even more different form of vibrato, sometimes called the "whack off" vibrato. He actually slides up and down the string at a VERY fast rate, not venturing far from the note he wants to accent. This is a cool sound vibrato if mastered...it almost sounds like you're wiggling the whammy bar, but different.
