Reply To: vibrato (actually tremolo)


Hi Tom,

I was quite curious if the jaw Vibrato would work for the melodica as well and I just tried a little. I have to say that I didn’t get on with it too well…

Just a little guess why this may be: when I open and close my jaw while playing saxophone, I press the reed against the mouthpiece and then release it which leads to a change of the air channel between reed and mouthpiece which leads to a Vibrato.

When I do the same on my melodica it doesn’t influence the air channel, so no Vibrato. The only thing that I recognized was that the movement of my jaw leaded to a better movement of my diaphragm which may be a good help if the diaphragm Vibrato doesn’t work properly…
