I've been told from a few teachers that I do something called "selective" vibrato. In other words, I'll play a passage and only vibrate notes that I want to, or feel more comfortable vibrating.
It may sound ridiculous, but it really is hard to focus on vibrating everything because then I'll focus only on that. Then everything just sounds bad.
It's especially been evident in slower passages of different pieces I've been working on.
I feel that when I slow down and do focus on vibrating what's necessary, not only does the sound production go downhill, but my arm/wrist tenses up. Which is just a hot mess of bad things...
Are there any suggestions of what I can do to work my way into solving this? Much is appreciated :)
