Hand Vibrato with Bow

Hand Vibrato with Bow

Start the vibrato action from the top and make the first movement backwards towards the scroll.

Use a metronome with a slow beat and double the number of cycles per beat. Keep the action smooth and regular and make sure that the nailjoint is available to move.

You can also change the metre of the cycle from a duple rhythm to a triplet rhythm and back again.
