I'm so frustrated right now! I am 13 and I have been playing for 6 years. I'm at the level of Wieniawski concerto #2. But the sad part is I still can't really do vibrato well.
I have tried a variety of methods. I used the book "Viva Vibrato" and I have also tried doing vibrato using a metronome. But it's still not fast enough or strong enough. It's especially hard on the pinky finger, because my pinky is weaker than the other fingers.
Maybe it's because I don't relax enough. How do I get my hand to relax? How do I make my vibrato faster? My teacher sometimes says that he can't even tell that I'm doing vibrato. Do you have any suggestions?
