Watch the Vibrato and Tremolo online guitar lesson by Annie Raines from Blues Harmonica Blueprint

Throat tremolo involves the same part of your throat you use for laughing or coughing, but when you do it on the inhale, it’s like laughing backwards. These two exercises will help you use tremolo to get a more supple sound. This will eventually feel as natural as laughing or crying and bring a lot of depth and soulfulness to your playing.

These exercises take two very different approaches to tremolo. The first exercise is about timing, the second is more about volume dynamics. You can do them in any order.
