Hi Guys,
Here is a video I just made talking about and demonstrating my understanding of Teds famous neck wiggle. Anyone have a different take on it?





all the best

Nice - I always thought these spasmodic movements were just his way of 'concentrated playing' (like when a guitarist is making faces on 'soulful' passages). Probably because TG even wiggles his head and has this funny/inspired look on his face...you really nailed it. Thank you for the explanation!

Thank you for this video Mr Lerch. Ive always insisted to friends that Teds wiggle was not some sort of spazz or twitch. To me, it's reminiscent of classical guitar vibrato and expression, but on a powerhouse instrument where you can really dig in. There is no pedal or effect that can replicate that sound or manipulation of.  Thumbs Up!!

Now, this person has taken Ted's technique to a whole other level.  I don't think I've seen Ted employ it to this degree, but I can't say for sure, because I usually watch his fingers, not his neck.
If someone ever sees Ted using the neck-wiggle like this person has demonstrated, perhaps you could share the video. (Probably best to watch the video without the audio.)
BTW, Tim Lerch does not stand behind these videos or this new variation of the technique itself.  His demonstration of the neck-wiggle is in its purest form, as utilized by Ted.
Enjoy....and Happy New Year:
