im learning this piece and it requires you to pick each note and vibrate them with the whammy bar

my question is what is the best way to grab the whammy bar? to have alot of control and speed

sing your whammy bar, pick notes and vibrate them gently, but very quickly. You've
be light on the whammy bar otherwise it'll just sound out of tune.

I'd hold the pick normally and place the bar between my index and middle fingers. The bar will rest on the hand, and should be "above" the pick area, so to speak. It's largely a matter of personal comfort though.

Yeah, just whats comfortable for you. Personally, when I play with trems, I hold them between my pinky and ring fingers, and pick normally, and then I just divebomb or pull up when I need to.

Ah, Knights Of Cydonia...

As proven by Matt Bellamy hold the tip of the bar in your hand between you middle finger and pinky and use your index finger and thumb for the pick. Easy.

When you get to Hysteria you'll have fun with this technique, and New Born isn't bad for it either.

I put the whammy bar under my hand and let friction hold it in place as I hold my pick with my thumb and index.
