When I try to bend a note or do some vibrato, the sound ends up sounding like I'm using a whammy bar instead of really adding emotion to it. What could be the problem?

Definitely a possibility, but I don't think that's quite it...then again...it might be.

u might be giving too much vibrato. it doesn't have to be that big of a bend/unbend.

Hmm, I usually don't bend it too much, but the results are the same either way. Do you think it could be my strings/guitar? I have a floyd rose tremolo and yes, it's one of the ****ty ones. My one friend who's pretty good can't get the right sound either. And yes, it's in tune.

Try experimenting with the speed at which you bend the string. Start slow and gradually speed it up. I found that this helped me out a lot.

It does sound a bit better if I slow it down a bit, but it's still doesn't sound quite right. I'll have to keep working on it. I'm thinking about getting new strings. I plan on playing metal, any suggestions?

Whatever floats your boat. I don't think there is such a thing as "Metal" strings. Its all personal preference imo. Try elixers, i like those.

strengthen up your fingers for a starter then try bending it to pitch then shake her
