    Attn: Guitarists

    Listen to your lead playing. Are you the guy that pulls off a great sounding, cleanly played, tasteful run that sounds like it's about to summon Odin himself to give you a high five, only to SHIT ALL OVER IT at the end with horrendous, Eddie Money style 500-mph vibrato that sounds like a swarm of wasps trying to invade your eardrums?

    Is that you? If so, do us all a favor - STOP THAT SHIT. Vibrato doesn't mean "shake the fuck out of a note as fast as you can". Vibrato is RHYTHMIC. If your fucking tempo is 100bpm and your vibrato is 386.5bpm, guess what? Your vibrato SOUNDS LIKE CRAP.

    Pay attention. It's as important as legato, phrasing, and everything else you motherfuckers are working on. Practice your vibrato assholes, and stop ruining otherwise great lead lines.

    My man Doug said it best ages ago.

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    I concur. Oh, how I concur...
    "The greatest power one may possess -- in any situation -- is simply not to care what happens.

    "In fact, it's the only power, all others being a semblance and mockery of it. But you must also not care about possessing the power itself. So fuck it."

    That moment of crushing realization when you find out your favorite guitarist has horrible vibrato is like finding out King Arthur had Erectile Dysfunction.

    You can never see them in the same light again.
