    i´m getting stoped by this tecnique, as far as much i try to make it sound correctly i cant
    it´s basically a vibrato on two strings simultaneally with the index finger, as i understand, but maybe i´m doing something wrong

    some advice?

    if anyone doesnt get my explain, it sounds like an 80s randy rhoads vibrato or something like that, lynch uses them a lot too

    Stevie Ray had this down as well. I can't do it at all.

    Well, with Lynch and Rhoads, it could just as well be the Tremolo Bar.

    To do this with the index finger only, I have to get my entire fret hand off the guitar except for the point where the index finger is touching those to strings, otherwise my hand will keep my finger from being able to move (so in other words, I'm doing a "whole hand" vibrato, not just a finger).

    But more often, if I'm going to do this, I'll use two adjacent fingers, like IM, MA, or AP (pinkie) which makes it much easier.

    This is it - use 2 fingers on diads that you'd normally use one on, and I bet you'll figure it out right away.
