Recently I have been trying to learn arm vibrato. So far I have practiced by sliding each respective finger across the strings as if I were polishing them to help me get the forearm motion. Sadly, after about a week of practice I am still unable to do so. I also have trouble with switching the weight from the left side of my finger tips to the more "meaty" part of them.
Some things about me: I'm double jointed in my arms and I have trouble with my thumb and side of my index finger clenching the neck of my violin.
I would like some guidance on better practices for arm vibrato, posture, any some tips that may help me accel. in my goals.
Thanks in advance!
