  1. Natural vibrato is the product of a free flowing voice, it comes naturally
    when a singer loosens up and starts to become comfortable with his/her
    support and technique. This guy is a sham!!!!

  2. Maximiliano Macuer

    Well, considering that support is fundamental for a strong, healthy
    singing, and that this vibrato basically kills your diaphragm support…
    Yeah, it’s bad. Even worse if your body ends up memorizing the movement and
    using it in every sustained note (even if not desired).

  3. Lets make a list with other methods our friend JABBA The Hutt can give use
    to make vibrato : 1-Lock yourself in a freezer. 2-Ride a bull. 3-Go in a
    bike through a rocky mountain. 4-Masturbate while you sing. 5-Sit on the
    washing machine. 6-Eat live bees. 7-Fire an M-16. What other “wooffy”
    methods you think we can use to have vibrato in other ways rather than the
    natural one? (wich by the way is the only safe way to make a vibrato)

  4. Jonathan Wimbush (Jonny)

    You can have a strong vibrato and still have diaphragm support…but when
    you’re unable to sustain a note without it (like you said), in that case
    there’s a problem.

  5. hahahhahah omg that just made me fall out my chair.hahahahahhaha.but that
    was mean.i believe this is just for starters to get used to having
    vibrato.i dont think he meant that this technique should be used for
    singing.

  6. You’re a fucking dumbass, that creates tension you dumbass. God, no wonder
    there are so many bad singers in the world. People like you teach them
    shitty technique. Good job, asshole.

  7. Thanx! This is the first good teaching video I foud! This is breaf, and
    sticks to the point! Many bad lessons are just talk and talk and talk and
    talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and
    talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and
    talk and talk and talk and about many useless topic. Gratulations!

  8. OMG!!! Ive seen some shit in my time but expertvillage wins hands down!
    where excactly do u find ur experts? do u pay bums off of the streets to
    pretend they know stuff? every vid ive seen from know it all village is
    giving peeps pointless and wrong info! if u insist on continuing giving out
    expert info get some real experts to give real advise!

  9. True people. He did mention that this technique gives beginners the “feel”
    for vibrato. LOL… you don’t expect to find people singing with quivering
    hands on their bellies do ya?… well… there may be a few out
    there…hehe. Thanks loads for the post [from a frustrated vibrato-learner
    ;)]

  10. well he does say a truly fake vibrato. this is really not healthy for you
    voice! vibrato is something that comes natually but you gotta have some
    basic stuff down like correct breathing tecs and your diaphragm i had NO
    vibrato before i started my lessons AT ALL! and i would be faking it in
    different ways.. then i started lessons the first thing my teacher said
    was: you notice how you dont have anybrato. it is because your have no
    support and dont relax in the throath but now, i got it down

  11. well i can also hit a high note by screaming. that doesent make it right!
    it is so wrong it has nothing to do with that! and what ever feeling you
    get is not the correct way… this is something that happens when your
    throath is relaxed and you are using your breathing and diaphragm.

  12. lol i know people will disagree but…this is really NOT THE CORRECT way to
    achieve vibrato. By doing this you’re just getting your diaphragm used to
    inconsistent rhythms. In any instrument whether voice, piano, violin etc.
    vibrato is the oscillation between two notes, it is produced by the pitch
    your vocal chords create NOT the diaphragm or lungs. Yes his technique
    works but it also has severe implications to your range and pitch,
    experienced singers will tell you this!

  13. Lack of vibrato is usually a result of a flat tongue. The root of the
    tongue gets ‘stuck’ in the throat and the sound won’t resonate freely,
    giving you a squeezed and flat sound.

  14. Wilkinson Family Channel

    i thought vibrato was an involuntary throat vibration. Otherwise, why would
    you have to control it when the song doesn’t require it. I’ve heard a lot
    of older people, who can’t control their vibrato, ruin songs. What you are
    describing sounds like the onset of learning how to do a “run”. I’m not
    writing to be disrespectful, I just want a little clarification. If I knew
    the answers or had an training, I wouldn’t be watching your video, right?

  15. whoever has a better way to do it, just do your own video guys.This is not
    a place to through all your bad attitudes!!!You’re here obviosuly to
    learn,not?If not, then you don’t belong here! whatever your “good motives”
    are (to protect us seekers-of-correct-vibrato), you’re doing it with such a
    wrong heart 

  16. traveler. through. life

    @DrRevClarke he meant to say that with this exercise you can stimulate ure
    cords to do vibrato and not to do like this all the time. Is like u fool
    ure brain also to make vibrato from cords. After all not every body is
    identic, so for some people this worked.

  17. Dude, do you even know what your talking about? Thats a HORRIBLE way to
    teach vibrato! If you learn it this way you wont be able to control it very
    well. And learning it this way makes you run out of air way too fast and
    you wont be able to hold it very long. The two-note way is ALOT better

  18. Michael Calza

    @Linzgreen4444 simple, practicing straight tone and controlling your
    breath. vibrato is the natural effect that comes when you allow the air to
    flow fluently from your relaxed diaphragm. if you do it the way this
    schmuck tells you to, you may end up with a vibrato, but it will be very
    uneven and without any kind of control in your voice. Sources: my music
    teacher with over 30 years of experience.

  19. I’ve asked my college vocal teacher about vibrato, i struggle in that i
    don’t have a natural vibrato yet. without realize it, i starting doing what
    he was saying to emulate the vibrato. this is not what you want to do! i
    now have to break my habit of it. my instructor said that this vibrato
    develops bad singing habits and real vibrato is when you have enough
    support for the larynx and the rest of the throat to vibrate freely through
    a note
