And hot-damn if it isn't fun. My playing had been in a rut recently, so I've made a pledge to myself to push myself out of the comfort zone a little by using techniques I never really deployed before. For me, the tone knob has always been just something I set for the song and forget about unless I find myself bugged by my sound being too bright or too dark. I knew a that a lot of players (especially Tele players) like to use it as an expression device, but for some reason I never really went there. Tonight I started monkeying with it, and found I couldn't stop. LOL. It actually made me appreciate my wah pedal MORE, because working the tone knob and manipulating a wah are still very different sounds. I can tell already that I'm going to want to keep both types of weapons in my arsenal.
