Vibrato is a way to color your notes with some variation in pitch added to the notes at different frequencies. In this video, Lari demonstrates how to get this familiar sound, and the different styles and sounds available.
- Let's work with vibrato.…For your listening list for this lesson,…goodness, there's so many great singers…that you can listen to, to study vibrato.…I like to listen to Alison Krauss,…because she has such a beautiful, light,…fluttery kind of vibrato.…She's got a very natural, fast vibrato.…I have to work very, very hard to even…attempt that speed of vibrato that Alison does.…It's so beautifully and naturally,…and the tone is gorgeous.…
My vibrato is more similar to Judy Garland,…who's also another singer that I listen a lot to.…She's got a very big, robust, very deep modulation…in her vibrato.…And, I also like listening to Raul Malo's vibrato.…He sings with the Mavericks,…and those are all singers that I would put…on your listening list for looking…at this particular quality or tool…that you are going to have in your belt.…So, the three things that we can control,…and that determine the sound of our vibrato,…are speed, how fast the modulation happens.…
This is a slow vibrato.…♫ (sings "la" with a slow modulation)…
