vibration sound

just recently had a tuneup and head gasket replacement. now i have this weird vibration when im stepping light on the pedal. im not sure if its something engine related or if the idle is just resonating thru the interior. when i step harder on the pedal (like going 40 or more mph) it goes away. any ideas?

Edit: To give you an idea of what the sound is like... it sounds like someone sticking a piece of cardboard in the spokes of a bicycle while the person was riding it.

judging by the sound you described, it sounds like a loose heat shield on your cats.
