I've been playing guitar for about 3 years now and i started off learning quite a few Guns'n'Roses songs. I realised lately i use a little too much vibrato when playing things. I think i picked this up while playing slash riffs as he does a lot of wide vibrato. It can get quite annoying sometimes, but it does make my playing style a little more unique. i wouldnt call it a problem..just more if a habit.
I was just wondering if anybody else does this?
I always Vibrato with a Pinch Harmonic on the lower frets lately.
It's just getting a habit, same as using my Floyd to divebomb and full up pitch as fast as possible.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

I use vibrato on every note I ring for more than 1/10 of a second.

You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws
if you all use too much vibrato because of G'n'R, then your all the same, not unique at all
I don't use vibrato that much if I'm honest.
oh yer i forgot to mention the pinch harmonics aswel :P. I use use loadsa of vibrato on pinch harmonics as well but i think otherwise they sound a bit dull unless our doing a bend.
I'm rather in control of my vibrato. I spent plenty to time learning all of my favourite guitarist's vibrato techniques.

Sometimes I won't use any at all, sometimes I'll do the super-wide vibrato, sometimes I'll do my personal favourite - the over the top 80s bend - hold a note without vibrato, then pick it again with extreme vibrato.
hmm... vibrato... the only bad vibrato is when you consistently bend the note out of tune as you wiggle it. Otherwise, you use as much as you want... someone is bound to like it.

Almost as convenient as Wikipedia, but infinitely more hipster, Dover.
I play a lot of blues so I use vibrato a lot. Mostly I'll go for a subtle B.B King or David Gilmour type vibrato, but every once in a while I'll go for a big SRV shake-the-guitar type vibrato.

I don't do heavy vibrato, though. Sometimes it's not too noticeable.
It really depends though.

Blues uses alot.
Metal uses fast vibrato.
Whereas normal Rock doesn't really use it.

Slash uses wide vibrato. I hate it, especially in the lower frets. Can never do it right.

But I can do Zakk Wyldes pinches and vibratos easy :S
