To Ed and the original poster, Orion,

I should have taken just a little more time with my initial response to Orion.
Larry Teal talks about all of the different ways vibrato can be done, the
strengths and weaknesses of each and their tonal characteristics. While being
short and expedient, I was thinking that by pointing Orion to a good source would
allow him to decide what might be good for his needs and he (or she) could decide
which direction to go and what to pursue. I did not, however, say any of that or
make that clear.
