    Hey Manny!
    It's been a while since I've posted but wow, it's good to be back. I was wondering, how do you teach/show someone how to play with vibrato??? A couple of my peers asked me and I tried my best, but they still couldn't get it. Thanks for your help.

    I Would like also to add to the question. I have had the experience of standing next to some really great players as they were playing, Byron Stripling, Jon Faddis, Roger Ingram, Andrea Tofanelli and others, all of them played with a real tight fast vibrato when playing in a lead trumpet situation. You couldn't really hear it standing away from them but right next to them you could hear it. I asked Byron about it, he said he got it from Snooky Young and said he felt it gave him more projection and power with less effort. What are your thoughts on this and how whould you recommend one practice this.
