    The BB King video works as a great primer for those after Kossoff and Angus vibrato.

    I think it's important to keep only your vibrato fingers on the string and shaking the string/guitar neck. The motion seems to help create the intense Kossoff vibrato.

    This is outside of the styles we seem most interested in around here, but I think it is still valuable:

    I don't have a link to post but Clapton was known, in the studio for sure, to at time use the middle position on the toggle bringing both pups to life but then rolling back the volume on the neck to give him a more beefy sounding bridge pup.

    This is appropriate in light of the recent Robin Trower thread:

    Not that I'm anyone special, but I like to use the middle position a lot, but set the neck tone at around 2.

    It's been posted elsewhere in several other Threads, but I thought it would be appropriate to post here as well:

    I've watched that a zillion times, and every time I'm just slack-jawed at how easily that man could switch guitars, styles and feel.

    My guitar hero, for sure. I always wished I could find out about how he set his action, his strings, etc., even though I'm sure he could play anything at all.

    I like those little descending type licks he (and many other guitarists) does... in 30+ yrs of guitar work... I've never really incorporated those, for whatever reason, and they are a great technique for transition , variety, and to give your solos a sense of movement into a resolution.

    studying these!
