Watch the Basic Vibrato online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 60 Electric Guitar Techniques You MUST Know

Vibrato can be applied with your fret hand finger of choice in a few different ways such as a horizontal approach, a vertical approach or a circular approach. Sometimes moving the neck or even grabbing it by the headstock and bending it can provide you the pitch modulation you're looking for.
