If it's anything like saxophone (which I'm sure it is) you just gotta add some controlled pulses in your air flow. Kinda like 'who who who'...

Long fingernails would present a problem to violinists, since they would interfere with the correct finger posture and prevent the finger-tip pressing the string to the finger-board, but these problems would show up even without vibrato. And your fingernails do not look too long. My advice would be to see a teacher and to just keep trying. Try slow ...

In rock and pop vibrato is undesirable. Someone who can sing "straight" is more effective than someone who wavers, intentional or not. In modern rock and pop, someone who uses vibrato cannot be autotuned and therefore is considered useless. I wish this wasn't the case, I'm a big fan of depeche mode - both singers use heavy vibrato. But it's been over 20 ...

I'm not exactly sure what action you're making, but the proper vibrato action is similar to that used on guitars - classical, rather than electric.Although the recognised classical vib. action works on electric, too. Making a claw shape, knuckles up, rest your fingertips on a hard surface - a table, maybe.Lift up three, leaving one tip on the table.Middle ...

Once your technique is correct it will happen naturally. The amazing thing about vibrato is that is happens naturally without force. It's a symptom of singing with a good and open space (hi palette and low larynx) along with just the right amount of breath control. I had to work on my technique before it happened naturally. Now it's automatic.

I can briefly explain what vocal vibrato means to me; it means that you are currently executing phonation with a perfect mouth shape and inner-space.. hence a natural vibrato is the result (it's not actually "forced"; but allowed to happen naturally). The first time I did it I was blown away.. because I didn't "do it". I practiced proper technique and one ...

You need weekly lessons with a good, qualified teacher to develop vibrato and learn to control it. There is no substitute for lessons in person with a teacher. Conversely, a very few people have a lot of vibrato in their voice, naturally and with no training. That was me as a young man. I had to get a voice teacher to teach me to reduce and control my ...

I was taught by some splendid teachers that a relaxed voice will produce a moderate, pleasing vibrato, or spin. It is actually more work to produce a flat (not pitch wise) tone, though some music styles call for it, and it is often desirable for certain choral work. The natural spin is to be distinguished from a manufactured vibrato that requires a real ...

Vibrato should usually be a natural phenomenon of a relaxed powerful voice but with the advent of amplification it has changed to more of a stylistic choice. Check out Nina Hagen's "Naturträne" and compare it with other songs from the same punk album (like "Unbeschreiblich weiblich"). It is obvious that her use of her operatically trained voice is both ...

What you are referring to is vibrato, not tremolo. All singers use some amount of vibrato. These days the use of strong vibrato is mostly associated with opera singing, but this was not always the case. Vibrato helps you sing louder, and with less fatigue to the voice. Some singers learn to sing with a little vibrato or a lot, and learn how to control how ...

I'm not sure this is really an answer, but probably I'll ramble on for way too long to be a comment. Tremelo/vibrato can be stylistic or masking; blending or highlighting. Genre will also dictate which of these may be 'compulsory' for that style. Opera, for instance, appears to make it almost mandatory [not a genre I'm a fan of] I've heard many instances ...
