Does anyone else have a problem with vibrato on the high E string? My string always slides off the fret board making a very unpleasant noise. Any suggestions other then stop sucking?
You're doing the vibrato wrong. Check the Doug Fearman video lesson on the page. It shows how to play vibratos.
You have to vibrato towards the other end of the fretboard. Takes a while to get good at.
Else than stopping sucking ? Do what you'd do normally but this time LOOK AT WHAT YOU'RE DOING, and figure out what's havin' those sh!tty sounds bleep out of your guitar and work at getting yourself your own technique about it, way more efficient than listening to someone else telling you what to do, think about Eddie, who showed him to tap ? Or Malmsteen to shred like crazy ? Man those days...
I vibrato to the center of the fret board. Just takes lots of practice.
