  • Guitarists with awesome vibrato technique.

    Some guitarists have vibrato down so well that it seems superhuman. Carlos Santana and Prince can bend a note back and forth so well that the guitar sounds like a violin. Who else plays like this?

    Robin Trower, Gary Moore

    I don't think of Carlos as using much vibrato though. Quite the opposite. He's great with sustain, but he usually holds the note still.

      Warren Haynes has a great vibrato! Mind you imo he has mastered every technique he uses.

        Peter Green, Jeremy Spencer, Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Jimi.

            Guitar Hero = Guy Magnet
            You do the math.

                  Mick Ronson does some stuff on the Bowie albums (particularly Man Who Sold The World and the live Santa Monica '72 semi-bootleg) on a Les Paul which I would've sworn was impossible without a wiggle stick.

                    Yes, he gets hacked on a lot for whatever but his vibrato is incredible. His obvious ones are so obvious that the less intense go unnoticed.

                        Paul Kossoff is who you are thinking of. And yes, he had a vibrato style that was superb.
