I've been playing violin exclusively with a shoulder rest for several years of playing thus far, but I recently found out some benefits of playing without one (better sound, more mobility, convenience) and I've since wanted to learn how to do it.
As of right now, I can comfortably play in and across positions 1 and 5 with a little difficulty in adjusting my hand in upper positions without a shoulder rest, but the difficulty is manageable.
Doing vibrato, however, is the one thing I'm having trouble with. I first learned vibrato the traditional "loose wrist" way: with all but the thumb and vibrating finger moving entirely without contact to the violin. This obviously works well in conjunction with a shoulder rest, wherein no upward force from the left hand is required. The way I hold the violin without a shoulder rest, though, involves actually partially lifting it up using the bottom-most index finger and thumb joints. As such, holding the violin in this way doesn't allow for the regular wrist vibrato I'm used to.
How might one vibrate using this type of left hand grip?
