    Rowuk sez:
    Vibrato is a "natural" pulse

    I'm not sure I understand your use of the term "natural".

    Doug, my (somewhat inappropriate comment) was NOT in any way directed to you. I saw your note about your condition and I admire the fact that you are playing and that it brings you joy. You can play vibrato in my ear anytime.

    Don't you hate it when the oboe sounds the tuning A with vibrato?

    No, my trumpets are brass, stable in pitch and I rarely have to move the tuning slide to find A=443. Sometimes I don't even play the tuning note as it is often ignored by the strings.

    Miles spent a lot of time working to remove vibrato from his playing.
    Wynton controls his depending on what he plays. Sometimes it is slow, sometimes it is fast.

    Control over vibrato is a great skill to have.

    Doug, You have my sympathies. I lost both my parents to Parkinson's, wasn't pretty. My youngest son's father-in-law has it and he's in deep do-do at the moment. congratulations for trying to go forward in spite of this terrible malady........Buck:oops:
