Dah, Why do you think they call it pimping?
I got my girlfriends the old fashioned way. Marching Band!
Are you you and I talking about vibrating the same thing?
I don't always use vibrato. But when I do, I make it from my diaphragm.
Stay thirsty, my friends.
Hmmmm... my vibrato comes mostly from the lips after relaxing the jaw.
Well, being still in a 'beginner's-method-book' mode, and fAR from an expert, I have experimented a little. I've tried the 'shake the horn a bit with the right hand' that I've seen on video--doesn't really do anything when I try it, I've tried the way you mention, and it does work, but I find it distracting, as I'm still trying desperately to play un-chipped notes (maybe moving up from the 7C might help), and I've tried using the diaphragm, which takes some practice to not overdo it, but to me, sounds the most open and allows me to remain more focused.
In the end, it's my very limited guess, that all three methods could be valid...just depends on what sound you're going for.
I think what they are referring to, the kids refer to it as "motor boating".
"Motor boating" the 6th graders I tutor are doing with flutter tongue. and is a sound chop off and on, vibrato is a controlled wavering of a 1/2 tone variance ascending or descending, quick or slow, moreso akin to "lipping".
This is something I do without thinking about how I do it. I think I use my chops mostly. Doc? What do you think I do?
