What about E.Clapton?His vibrato ,to me, is very unique and tasteful.I also like the vibrato of Andy Timmons.His vibrato produces an extremely long sustain and allows him to play mid-gain settings that sound like high gain.Very nice!

Talking about vibrato, I think Marty Friedman's vibrato is the best and the most unique one.

I am telling on myself but a long time ago when I was young, the vibrato of Angus Young really stood out. I notice that many on this thread don't really talk about what style vibrato we are talking about so I assume wide open vibrato. I was really suprised at the energy he put into his leads. I am not a big fan of ACDC so this is merely an observation.

P.S. Mr Young seems to have lost alot of that energy though. Upon seeing a more recent video, the one I saw. on AOL, Even the singer couldn't hit the notes like old times. The curse of age.

EVH has the finest vibrato, I think. But of course I have to mention Jimi, SRV, Satch and Vai.

Watch Vai's middle finger as he executes his vibrato. Unbelievable.
